Giants release Marco Scutaro


Marco Scutaro was designated for assignment by the Giants last week to clear a 40-man roster spot for outfielder Norichika Aoki and now the transactions page shows that the 39-year-old second baseman has officially been released.

Scutaro appeared in just five games last season for the World Series champions due to a back injury that has continued to bother him this offseason.

His playing days may very well be over.
