According to Bryan Hoch, Casey McGehee has elected free agency rather than pursue staying with the New York Yankees. It’s hard to blame McGehee who never really got a shot with the Yankees and was rather abused in roster moves. His short time with the Yankees was one of the stranger developments this past season. The Yankees traded Chad Qualls to get McGehee on July 31 and McGehee only garnered 59 plate appearances for the Yankees after that date.
In other roster news, Hoch also reported that the Yankees have returned Brad Meyers to the Washington Nationals. Meyers made only one minor league appearance all season.
