Scutaro Open To Staying In Toronto

Marco Scutaro figures to be a popular target this offseason (his agent says teams have expressed interest in him at three infield positions), but Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of say that he's willing to stay in Toronto.

"He definitely hasn't closed the door on Toronto at all," (agent Peter) Greenberg said.

The Jays offered Scutaro a contract extension during the season, then did so again after the season, but Scutaro wants to explore the open market according to the duo from Fox.

The 34-year-old enjoyed a career year in 2009 by hitting .282/.379/.409 in 680 plate appearances. Scutaro is a Type-A free agent, so a team would have to forfeit a high draft pick to sign him.
