Giants, Marco Scutaro agree on 3-year deal

"You, man" "No, you!" - Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Second basemen and playoff hero Marco Scutaro has agreed to stay in San Francisco through 2015

The Giants have completed another sweep. This time it's locking up all three of their three marquee free agents, which was complete when second basemen Marco Scutaro signed a 3-year $20 million deal to stay in San Francisco. The Giants had already inked Jeremy Affeldt and Angel Pagan to three- and four-year deals, assuring that the band that won the 2012 World Series would stay together.

Scutaro, 37, came over in a trade from the Rockies on July 28 and hit the snot out of the ball. In 61 games, the Venezuelan hit .362/.385/.473 and struck out just 14 times in 268 plate appearances. He was just as good in the postseason, going 14-28 against St. Louis en route to winning the NLCS MVP and collecting the game-winning RBI in Game 4 of the World Series.

The Cardinals must have liked what they saw, as they offered Scutaro a 2-year deal worth $16 million. But the third year proved too tempting for a player who is already 37 and likely seeking his last taste of free-agent dollars.
