UPDATE: Jim Bowden of ESPN tweets that the deal is done. The Red Sox have traded Scutaro to Colorado in exchange for Clayton Mortensen. No cash is involved.

According to Troy Renck, the Rockies are finishing up a deal for Marco Scutaro. Yesterday, we heard that Colorado was close to acquiring the Boston Red Sox shortstop, but talks ended up fizzling out. Now, it appears that the deal has been revived. Renck notes that Colorado would send a pitcher to Boston in return, if the trade goes through.

The Rockies would reportedly use Scutaro as their starting second baseman. The Red Sox, meanwhile, are looking to bring in another pitcher and clear up some money. Clayton Mortensen was discussed by the two teams, tweets Renck.

Scutaro, 36, hit .299/.358/.423 in 113 games with Boston in 2011.
