The 31-year old returns from Japan and gets a $1.1 million deal from the Marlins.

The Miami Marlins have signed third baseman Casey McGehee to a one-year, $1.1 million contract, as first reported by Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. McGehee spent the 2013 season in Japan with the Rakuten Golden Eagles, but will return to the United States for his sixth major league season on an incentive-laden contract.

McGehee, 31, hit .292 with 28 HR and 93 RBI in 144 games or Rakuten after signing a one-year deal with them last offseason. He will likely be the Marlins' starting third baseman in 2013, filling the void left by the departure of free agent Placido Polanco. Miami has been looking all over the free agent market for third base help, with interest in Yuniesky Betancourt and Wilson Betemit before deciding on McGehee.

In five major league seasons with the Cubs (2008), Brewers (2009-2011), Pirates (2012) and Yankees (2012), McGehee is a lifetime .257 hitter with 61 HR and 283 RBI.
