Pirates Trade Jose Veras for Casey McGehee

by @ 9:25 am. Filed under 2012 Pirates

The Pirates pulled the trigger on a trade as they traded setup man Jose Veras to the Milwaukee Brewers for third baseman Casey McGehee.  After the Brewers picked up Aramis Ramirez, McGehee was expendable and he could be an interesting haul.  He had a career year in 2010 but in 2010 he hit just .223.

Where McGehee plays will depend on how Pedro Alvarez is doing.  He’s been named the starter at third and if he shines, then McGehee will probably play first base or at one of the corner outfield spots.  At one time, he also played second base for the Brewers so he could fill in there as well.
