Giants keep Scutaro with 3-year deal

Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - The San Francisco Giants re-signed postseason hero Marco Scutaro to a three-year deal on Tuesday. FoxSports.com is reporting that the pact is worth $20 million.

Scutaro was acquired by the Giants from Colorado midway through last season and was a huge part of San Francisco's success down the stretch, as he batted.362 in 61 games after hitting .271 in 95 games for the Rockies.

The 37-year-old infielder carried that into the postseason and was the NLCS MVP after hitting .500 with three doubles and four RBI in the Giants' seven- game win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Scutaro started his career with the New York Mets back in 2002 and is a career .276 hitter in parts of 11 seasons with the Mets, Oakland Athletics, Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox, Rockies and Giants.
