San Francisco Giants 2B Marco Scutaro (back) remains in the team's plans after he had fusion last month to fix the area at level L-2/L-3 in his spine. It will be another four to six months before doctors will be able to tell if Scutaro can play again. Assistant general manager Bobby Evans said Scutaro is "not yet pain-free, which isn't uncommon after surgery." Scutaro will make $6 million in 2015.

San Francisco Giants 2B Marco Scutaro hasn't encouraged the club or scouts with his play. He wasn't in the lineup Thursday, July 24, even though they're facing a left-hander. Observers says his lack of mobility and bat speed is holding him back. Ehire Adrianza continues to receive playing time in place of Scutaro.
Fantasy Tip: Adrianza is strictly an NL-only add. Scutaro may not even be ownable in most of those games in the near future.

San Francisco Giants 2B Marco Scutaro (neck) tweaked his neck during the All-Star break, but he's available to pinch hit Friday, July 18. The injury isn't related to his back injury.
Fantasy Tip: Scutaro will need plenty of rest as a utility player to keep him healthy for the second half of the season. He won't play consistently, making him a frustrating fantasy commodity.
