Out of all the players that the Milwaukee Brewers picked up and made a good contribution Casey McGehee deserves a shot. He did much better then I ever thought he would. A cast-off from the Chicago Cubs McGehee showed a good glove and a very good bat as well.
McGehee batted .301 with 16 home runs and 66 RBI’s in just 116 games. He was a bargain at 400,000 salary and is just 27 years old and has a lot of upside and the Brewers need a good third basemen. This has been a spot the Brewers have struggled and getting an everyday player there is something that they need to do.
Hopefully Brewers management will give him every opportunity to earn the job in spring training. McGehee has proven he deserves a shot and hopefully he will make the most of it.
