McGehee was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the tenth round of the 2003 Major League Baseball Draft out of Fresno State. McGehee was a September call-up for the Cubs in 2008, making his major league debut on September 2. He went 0 for 1 in his first game.
On March 31, 2009, it was announced that he would be a reserve infielder for the Brewers in 2009. When Ryan Braun got injured, third baseman Bill Hall played at Braun's position in left field, while McGehee started at third base.

He hit his first home run on June 14, 2009 off of Mark Buehrle of the Chicago White Sox; it was one of his two RBIs in the game. On June 29, 2009, he hit his first career grand slam off of New York Mets pitcher Brian Stokes, which came after he committed an error that led to two unearned runs. On July 4, McGehee had career highs of four hits and five RBIs against the Chicago Cubs. Although he came up short on the NL Rookie of the Year balloting for 2009, his solid season cemented him a starting job at third base for the Brewers in 2010.

In 144 games, mostly at third base, McGehee hit .292 with 28 HR and 93 RBI.
McGehee's period in Japan paid off, and on December 18, 2013, McGehee signed a one-year, $1.1 million deal with the Miami Marlins to start at third base. McGehee hit his first Marlins home run on May 10, despite hitting .309 with 23 RBI in 36 games before. It was in Miami that Casey earned his nickname "Hits McGehee." In 159 games of 2014, McGehee grounded into an MLB-leading 31 double plays while batting .289 with 4 home runs and 76 RBI, winning the Major League Baseball Comeback Player of the Year Award for the National League.
