SportsNet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports that Casey McGehee will explore potential MLB opportunities during the upcoming off-season.  A snip:

In his first season overseas, the 30-year-old infielder hit 27 home runs while driving in 90 and posting an .883 OPS for the Eagles. He isn't ruling out staying in Japan, but he plans to explore a return to MLB in the coming months.

[...] "It has been a great season in Japan and at the end of the season he will decide whether to continue in Japan or return here," agent Barry Meister said.
