[2/27/2017] Yomiuri Giants exploring possibility of Casey McGehee at second base

The Yomiuri Giants are crowded at the infield corners and still lack a solid candidate at second base. During fielding practices on February 27, Casey McGehee spent time at second base. The thirty-four-year-old seems open to the idea, and if the Giants believe he can handle the position, it would allow them to use Shuichi Murata at third and Shinnosuke Abe at first.
