The Yankees didn’t get Ryan Dempster at the trade deadline, but they did make a deal.McGehee hit .230/.297/.377 with 8 HR and 35 RBI in 92 games with the Pirates.
Yankees GM Brian Cashman obtained versatile infielder Casey McGehee from the Pirates for reliever Chad Qualls, sources told The Post. In the short term with Mark Teixeira out (wrist), McGehee can play some first base and he can also fill the third-base void left by Alex Rodriguez (broken hand) with a power bat.
The Yankees are getting $225,000 as part of the trade to cover some of about $1 million left on McGehee's deal.
