Giants rumors: San Francisco 'optimistic' about re-signing Marco Scutaro

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

The Giants think they'll be able to work out a deal with the veteran shortstop.

The San Francisco Giants are "optimistic" they will be able to bring shortstop Marco Scutaro back on a two-year deal, reports Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle:

According to multiple sources, the Giants are optimistic they can re-sign Scutaro, who delivered the World Series-clinching single in Detroit and, at 37, is not expecting to break the bank with his contract.

He likely will get a two-year deal.

The veteran shortstop was struggling in Colorado when the Giants picked him up at the trade deadline, but Scutaro turns things around in the second half. The extreme contact hitter batted .362/.385/.473 with twenty extra-base hits in sixty-one games for the Giants down the stretch -- and knocked in the winning run in Game 4 of the World Series -- leading San Francisco to their second title in three years.

Scutaro earned between $5-$6 million each of the last three seasons, and will probably receive an offer in that same range from the Giants this winter.
