The Yankees have acquired third baseman Casey McGehee from the Pirates, Joel Sherman of the New York Post tweets.

The Yanks had been looking for another third baseman to fill in for the injured Alex Rodriguez and McGhee fits the bill. The 29-year-old is hitting .230 with 8 home runs and 35 RBI this season. He can fill in as a utility infielder and pinch hitter after A-Rod comes back.

In return, the Yankees send reliever Chad Qualls to the Pirates. The 33-year-old righty will add a nice veteran presence to the Pirates’ bullpen.

Spread the Rumor!
