Giants released 2B Marco Scutaro.
Scutaro was designated for assignment on January 21 to make room for Norichika Aoki. The 39-year-old is due $6.67 million this year, a number the Giants were obviously more comfortable eating than keeping him on the 40-man roster. His career may very well be over. Jan 28 - 8:15 PM

Giants designated 2B Marco Scutaro for assignment.

The Giants needed a spot on the 40-man roster for recently-signed outfielder Norichika Aoki. Scutaro underwent fusion surgery on his back in December, forcing him to the sidelines for most of the 2015 season. The 39-year-old is owed $6 million in the last year of his three-year contract. Scutaro may have trouble prolonging his major league career once he's healthy given his age.
Jan 21 - 12:31 PM

Marco Scutaro underwent fusion surgery of the L2 and L3 in his back Sunday and will be sidelined for 4-6 months.

This comes after Scutaro appeared in just five games this past season due to a chronic back problem. The 39-year-old is owed $6 million in 2015, but there's a real chance his tenure with the Giants is over, if not his career.

Giants activated 2B Marco Scutaro from the 60-day disabled list.

Scutaro appeared in just five games this season due to a chronic back ailment. The 39-year-old is owed $6 million in 2015 and his future remains a question.

Giants transferred 2B Marco Scutaro from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster prior to the Giants making some call-ups Tuesday. Scutaro is done for the season due to his chronic back ailment.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Marco Scutaro (back) is unlikely to return this season.

It's no surprise, as Scutaro has missed the last month with his chronic back injury and isn't getting any better. He's been limited to just five games this season, picking up one hit in 11 at-bats. Scutaro is owed $6.67 million in 2015 but will again be a poor bet to stay healthy.

Giants placed INF Marco Scutaro on the 15-day disabled list with a strained lower back.

The veteran infielder has dealt with chronic back issues throughout the season, and managed to play in just five games during his brief stint with the Giants. Fantasy owners can probably write him off completely at this point.

Marco Scutaro (neck) finished 1-for-4 with a run scored Sunday in his return to the Giants' lineup.

It was only Scutaro's second game of the season. With his chronic back injury lingering and a new neck issue developing, the veteran second baseman is doubtful to be an everyday player down the stretch and can be ignored in standard fantasy formats.

Marco Scutaro is considered day-to-day due to a stiff neck.

Scutaro just returned from his chronic back injury and was already essentially going to be day-to-day the rest of the season. He should be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Fri, Jul 18, 2014 05:48:00 PM

Marco Scutaro admitted that his back tightened up on him late during Saturday's game.

It's not unexpected, as Scutaro still isn't 100 percent and was playing in his first game of the season. He's essentially going to be day-to-day for the rest of the season, but the Giants are hoping he'll be able to gut it out without going back on the DL. "I know my back is not 100 percent," Scutaro said. "I'll just try to fight through it, day by day, and go from there."

Marco Scutaro has returned to the Giants starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Scutaro has missed the entire season thus far due to a recurring back injury. While he will be eased back into action, he makes for an interesting target in deeper mixed, and NL-only formats.
Sat, Jul 12, 2014 01:28:00 PM

Giants activated INF Marco Scutaro from the 60-day disabled list.

Scutaro is not in the Giants lineup on Friday, but will be available as a pinch hitter off the bench. He's worth a look as a middle infield option in deeper mixed league formats.
Fri, Jul 11, 2014 08:55:00 PM

The Giants plan to activate Marco Scutaro (back) from the disabled list on Saturday.

There was a prevailing thought that he would rejoin the team on Friday, but it looks as though he needed an extra day. Expect him to rejoin the Giants starting lineup and make his season debut on Saturday.
Fri, Jul 11, 2014 08:12:00 PM

The Giants are aiming to activate Marco Scutaro (back) from the disabled list on Friday.

The tentative plan is for Scutaro to play a full nine innings with Triple-A Fresno on Thursday, with the team activating him before Friday's game if all goes well. Scutaro hasn't played a game yet this season due to chronic back problems, but he could be a big boost to the Giants in the second half.
Wed, Jul 9, 2014 07:27:00 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated Tuesday that the club is optimistic Marco Scutaro (back) will have a bigger role than initially expected upon his return.

Scutaro is feeling great during his rehab assignment to the point that Bochy thinks the second baseman could play more than the 2-4 games per week the team was initially anticipating. The veteran infielder could be activated later this week.
