|Streaking Marco Scutaro gets 'break' at DH|

(5/14/13) Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro served as the DH in Tuesday's series opener against the Blue Jays.
"This is a great opportunity to give Scutaro a break," manager Bruce Bochy told MLB.com. "We're only here two days so I can't take it easy on a lot of them, but with Scutaro, it makes sense to give him a break."
Scutaro has hit in 12 straight contests and is batting .479 (23 for 48) with one homer and five RBI during that span.
|Marco Scutaro still scorching for Giants |
|by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/12/13) Giants shortstop Marco Scutaro continued his hot hitting Sunday against the Braves with his sixth-straight, multi-hit performance in the 5-1 win.
Scutaro hit his first home run of the year in the fifth inning off starter Kris Medlen and added a ground-rule double in the sixth. He finished 2 for 5 with an RBI and run scored.
Scutaro has hit safely in 12-straight games and is batting .479 (23 for 48) with a home run, five doubles, two triples and five RBI over that span. He has nine multi-hit games during his streak.
|Marco Scutaro worth a start|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/10/13) 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.
Given his recent turnaround, it is time to get Scutaro into the starting lineup, and just in time for a favorite Fantasy Week 7 (May 13-19). 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. Fantasy owners should be confident that his hot stretch can continue for another week.

Rockies end 10-game skid vs. Giants on Pacheco's slam
Jordan Pacheco hit a tiebreaking grand slam in the fifth and Carlos Gonzalez added a solo homer, helping the Colorado Rockies hold on for a 10-9 win over San Francisco on Friday night that snapped a 10-game skid against the Giants.
Hit Parade for Week 8
Some heavy hitters are finally starting to return to form and good health, leaving owners with many tough decisions. Our Scott White looks at all of the streaks and matchups in his latest Hit Parade.
Pagan breaks it open for Giants in win over Rockies
Angel Pagan broke a tie with a two-run single in the sixth, Matt Cain settled down after a shaky start and the San Francisco Giants won their 10th straight over Colorado, rallying from a six-run deficit to beat the Rockies 8-6 on Thursday night.
Blue Jays crush Giants for fourth straight win
J.P. Arencibia and Adam Lind each hit two-run home runs, Ramon Ortiz won for the first time since 2011 and the Toronto Blue Jays won their season-high fourth straight game Wednesday night, beating the San Francisco Giants 11-3.
|Usually when a player joins the Rockies, Fantasy owners salivate at the thought of the extra-base power that comes with the move. Even for a doubles hitter like Marco Scutaro, a schedule full of home games at Coors Field seems sure to generate a windfall. Things didn't work out that way when Scutaro got to Denver. Through late July, he was batting .271 with four home runs and 16 doubles. In a strange twist, it took a trade to pitcher-friendly San Francisco for Scutaro's season to take off. As the Giants' regular second baseman, Scutaro struck out just 14 times in 243 at-bats, hitting .362 with three home runs and 16 doubles -- basically the same power output he had in Colorado, but in less than two-third of the at-bats. He will reprise his role as the Giants' second baseman in 2013, as he signed a three-year, $20 million deal with the team this offseason. Though he is extremely unlikely to replicate his late season performance, which included a .328 postseason batting average, he should be more productive than he was during his Rockies stint. Be careful not to overvalue Scutaro on Draft Day due to his late-season hot streak, but he is still a good option in the late rounds of standard mixed league drafts. (Updated 12/7/12)|
