McGehee a viable fantasy baseball option

VIDEO HIGHLIGHT: Casey McGehee homers off Detroit’s Justin Verlander

Brewers Tigers Baseball

Sadly, when the Santa Cruz Sentinel covered Soquel High alum Casey McGehee make his Milwaukee Brewers debut in the season-opener, McGehee, a utility infielder, didn’t play against the host San Francisco Giants.

Needless to say, we took some ribbing from readers about that story … writing a full-length feature on a guy reaching the on-deck circle.

But it was more than that. McGehee spoke of the patience and mental approach he needed to succeed in his ultra-limited role. Well, time flies, because he’s essentially thrown that role out the window in the past month.

McGehee has worked magic after taking over for since-injured second baseman Rickie Weeks. In 86 at-bats, McGehee has a team-leading .349 batting average (30-for-86). Nine of hits have gone for extra bases and he has 12 RBIs, not bad since working his way up from the bottom of the lineup to the No. 2 spot.

Yahoo! Sports Brandon Funston actually gave the local boy some love and called him a viable fantasy baseball option. I love it!!!
