Marco Scutaro Would 'Love' To Resign With San Francisco Giants

Veteran infielder Marco Scutaro has been one of the main reasons the the San Francisco Giants have been one of the best teams in baseball since the All-Star break. And with the Black and Orange having limited options with infield depth, CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly is reporting that Scutaro would "love" to return to the team next year.

"I would love to come back here," he told me. "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 37-year old has a major-league best 94 percent contact rate on strikes this season, and has become a perfect fit in the No. 2 spot in the Giants lineup. He's batting .341 with a .808 OPS and 30 RBIs in just 44 games for San Francisco this season, and is able to play second base, shortstop or third base, giving the Giants more flexibility with their defense as well.

San Francisco is the eighth MLB team that Scutaro has played for in his ten year career.
