Scutaro Hopes To Return To Giants

While Marco Scutaro seemed less-than-enthused about leaving the Rockies when he was traded in July, the veteran now says that he hopes to return to San Francisco next season, writes Andrew Baggarly of

I would love to come back here,” Scutaro said. “I really love it here. There are great fans, it’s a great place to play. More important, it’s a place where you have a chance to win every year.” 

The infielder went on to say that he would be open to re-signing during the exclusivity window after the season, before he would hit the open market.  Baggarly hears that the Giants will work hard to re-sign Scutaro after the season as they're in need of someone to handle second base for a year or two before Joe Panik is ready.

In 139 games for the Rockies and Giants this season, Scutaro has a slash line of .293/.336/.388 with six home runs.  Yesterday, Ben Nicholson-Smith broke down Fangraphs' list of the top free agent infielders, which included Scutaro.
