    MIAMI — Casey McGehee, the NL Comeback Player of the Year in 2014, will need another comeback.

    The veteran infielder was designated for assignment Tuesday by the San Francisco Giants shortly before they began a three-game series at Miami. The Giants purchased the contract of infielder Ehire Adrianza from Triple-A Sacramento.

    McGehee, 32, lost his starting job at third base to Matt Duffy and was demoted to the minors earlier this season. After returning he went 5 for 17, and he's batting .213 with two homers in 49 games. Despite playing part-time he has grounded into 15 double plays, tied for most in the majors.

    Adrianza, a switch-hitter, has spent all of this season with Sacramento, batting .316 with three home runs.
