|Giants can't find a place for Marco Scutaro yet |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/24/14) Giants infielder Marco Scutaro was out of the starting lineup for the third straight day Thursday against the Phillies, as the team continues to struggle finding a place for him in his recovery from a back injury.
"I'll just use him off the bench today and we'll see where he’s at when we get back,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy told CSNBayArea.com Thursday. "Hopefully we'll get to a point where we’re more comfortable putting him out there a couple times a week."
Scutaro will likely start one game this weekend against the Giants, but the report indicates opposing team scouts have been unimpressed by Scutaro both at the plate and in the field since his return.
|Marco Scutaro finally makes second appearance this season |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/14) Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro made it back into the starting lineup Sunday against the Marlins after missing two games due to neck stiffness. Scutaro has been active for just one game this season, as he was sidelined for most of the year due to a back injury.
|It took Marco Scutaro 12 seasons, but he finally became a major-league All-Star for the first time in 2013. Scutaro had a torrid first half to thank for that, batting .316 with a .367 on-base percentage in his first 81 games. Unfortunately, Scutaro slumped in the second half, batting .262 with a .339 on-base percentage. Scutaro's decline largely had to do with a finger injury he suffered in June after getting hit by a pitch and the chronic back soreness he dealt with all season. Scutaro had finger surgery in September to fix tendon damage, but it's not expected to keep him sidelined at the start of the season. Though, after being limited to 127 games last season due to durability issues, it does bring up the question whether or not the veteran second baseman is breaking down as he gets closer to 40 years old. Scutaro can hit for average, but he doesn't have much home run power. He is more of a deep-league Fantasy option.
