Casey McGehee hit .287 with 29 doubles, four home runs and 76 RBI last season.
San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The San Francisco Giants have acquired infielder Casey McGehee from the Miami Marlins in exchange for minor league pitchers Kendry Flores and Luis Castillo.
The Giants have been searching for a third baseman since Pablo Sandoval left last month to sign with the Boston Red Sox.
McGehee became expendable when the Marlins acquired infielder Martin Prado from the New York Yankees in a five-player deal on Friday.

So, what did you do this week?
I guarantee it wasn't as much as what San Diego Padres general manager A.J. Preller did, as he completely transformed the identity, look, and overall perception of his team.
San Diego drastically upgraded its lineup, as it acquired outfielders, Matt Kemp, Wil Myers and Justin Upton, along with catcher Derek Norris and third baseman Will Middlebrooks, while re-signing righty Josh Johnson and adding flamethrower Brandon Morrow.
