Yankees Acquire Casey McGehee

The Yankees complete a deal with the Pirates sending reliever Chad Qualls to Pittsburgh for 1B/3B Casey McGehee and cash.

McGehee is batting .230 with 8 HR and 35 RBI this season.

It was thought that Yankees GM Brian Cashman was not going to look outside the organization for a third baseman after Alex Rodriguez broke his hand. However, with Mark Teixeira getting hurt last night, albeit not a very serious injury, Cashman decided right before the trade deadline to deal for the 29 year old McGehee.

Before the trade the Yankees had Eric Chavez and Nick Swisher as options at first base in the absence of Teixeira. Chavez, Ramiro Pena and Jayson Nix were options at third base until A-Rod returns from his injury.

Casey McGehee gives Yankee skipper Joe Girardi another descent bat to plug in to the lineup at either first base or the hot corner.
