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. Jul 25 - 6:44 PM

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.
Jul 21 - 8:40 AM

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.
Jul 18 - 5:48 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."
Jul 13 - 10:59 AM

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.
Jul 12 - 1:28 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.
Jul 11 - 8:55 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.
Jul 11 - 8:12 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.
Jul 9 - 7:27 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.
Jul 8 - 8:38 PM

Marco Scutaro (back) went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in a rehab game with Triple-A Fresno on Monday.

Scutaro had his rehab assignment moved up to Triple-A after he went 2-for-12 (.167) over six games with the AZL Giants. Out all season with a chronic back problem, he could be activated soon.
Jul 8 - 8:40 AM

Marco Scutaro (back) has moved his rehab assignment up to Triple-A Fresno.

Scutaro picked up two hits and two walks over 14 plate appearances with the Arizona League Giants. The second baseman thinks he's ready to return now, but the club wants him to show he can play a full game first. Scutaro should be activated soon if he can avoid a setback.
Jul 7 - 8:31 PM

Marco Scutaro (back) could move his minor league rehab assignment to Triple-A Fresno on Sunday.

Scutaro had two hits Wednesday in his second rehab game in the rookie-level Arizona League. He's on the long road to recovery from a chronic back injury that required a blood-spinning procedure in mid-May. If all goes well from here on out, the veteran second baseman could return to the Giants' active roster shortly after the All-Star break. But his days of being an everyday player are probably over.
Jul 3 - 2:46 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Marco Scutaro (back) was a bit sore following his first rehab game with the rookie-level Arizona League Giants on Tuesday.

It's no surprise given that he hasn't played in a real game in months, but at this point we can't rule out it being another setback for the veteran second baseman. Scutaro is set to play 4-5 innings for the Arizona League Giants on Friday, so we'll see how he comes out of that appearance.
Jun 27 - 11:40 AM

Marco Scutaro (back) will begin a rehab assignment with the rookie-level Arizona League Giants on Tuesday.

Scutaro will play three innings in what will be his first game action since spring training. The second baseman underwent a blood-spinning procedure in mid-May for his chronic back issue and appears to finally have made a bit of progress. While it's nice that Scutaro is playing in games again, it remains totally up in the air as to when he might return to the Giants.
Jun 23 - 10:26 PM

Marco Scutaro (back) will take some swings Friday and could take some at-bats with the Giants' rookie ball team next week.

Scutaro underwent a blood-spinning procedure in mid-May for his chronic back problems, but progress has been slow. If he plays at all for the Giants this season, it will likely be a very limited capacity.
