Marco Scutaro worth a start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (5/10/2013) Giants shortstop Marco Scutaro suffered through a miserable slump to open his season, as he was batting just .213 on April 28, after 23 games. For a light-hitting middle infielder who many assumed was a fluke in the second half last season, this could have been taken as a sign that he was reverting back to who his natural talent ability.
In nine games since, however, Scutaro has looked a lot more like the guy who was scorching hot for the Giants in their run to the playoffs last season. He is batting .486 in 35 at bats in that stretch, and has struck out just once in that time.

Scutaro gets four games at hitter-friendly Coors Field, as well as a matchup against the depleted Blue Jays, as Scott White notes in his Hit Parade column previewing the week.
