  • Casey McGehee, who was designated for assignment Sunday by the Giants, has struggled this season, hitting .200 with nine RBIs in 35 games.

DENVER — The San Francisco Giants on Sunday designated third baseman Casey McGehee for assignment and recalled right-hander Hunter Strickland from Triple-A Sacramento.

McGehee, who was acquired from the Miami Marlins in December, was hitting .200 with nine RBIs in 35 games for the Giants. McGehee, who has more than five years of major league service time, said he was not ready to decide whether to accept the assignment to Sacramento.

Strickland was recalled Saturday to serve as the 26th man during the Giants' doubleheader against Colorado. He struck out three batters in two innings in the opener before being optioned to Sacramento after the second game.
