(7/18/14) Giants infielder Marco Scutaro is on the bench for Friday's game against the Marlins, due to neck stiffness. Manager Bruce Bochy told reporters prior to the game he is day to day moving forward.

|Marco Scutaro to start Saturday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/11/14) Giants infielder Marco Scutaro should start Saturday, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
Scutaro could be activated Friday depending on how his batting practice session goes. Even if that doesn't happen, it's clear the team expects Scutaro to play Saturday. He's missed all season while recovering from 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.
