Marco Scutaro, Jeremy Guthrie and Jason Giambi are the Colorado Rockies’ players most likely to be traded this summer, reports Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

Marco Scutaro knew the question was coming. His contract also expires at the end of the year, leaving the infielder to join Giambi and pitcher Jeremy Guthrie as the most likely to be moved in the coming weeks.

Renck notes that Giambi could be traded for a marginal prospect this summer. The 41-year-old has hit at a clip of .247/.394/.342 with five extra-base hits and eight RBIs this season.

The Rockies acquired Scutaro from the Boston Red Sox this off-season and the 36-year-old has manned both middle infield positions for Colorado. Over his 314 at-bats for the club, Scutaro has hit .283/.334/.382 with 20 extra-base hits and 24 RBIs.

Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports tweeted today that while Scutaro is available, his price remains high.

Guthrie, another off-season acquisition, got off to a rough start with the Rockies. The right-hander owns a season ERA and WHIP of 6.28 and 1.68, though he was much improved in his most recent start Wednesday against the St. Louis Cardinals.
