MARLINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Marlins are not shopping Casey McGehee, might sign him to multi-year contract extension

Casey McGehee entered play on Tuesday evening with a batting average (.322) that is 54 points above his career mean (.268) and an RBI total (56) that ranks ninth in the National League.
