After retaining Angel Pagan on Monday, the San Francisco Giants will have another familiar face on their roster after re-signing second baseman Marco Scutaro to a $20 million, three-year contract late Tuesday.
It’s the first deal longer than two years Scutaro has ever gotten, and according to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, he needs only to pass a physical before the deal becomes official.
After he was acquired in a July 27 trade with Colorado, the 37-year-old was the NL championship series MVP in 2012, later helping to lead San Francisco to its second World Series title in three years, driving in the game-winning run in the 10th inning of a deciding Game 4. He finished the season hitting .362 with three homers and 44 RBIs in 61 games with the Giants.
The Giants and Scutaro’s representatives met Tuesday at the winter meetings in Nashville, Tenn. just after the St. Louis Cardinals made a push for the veteran infielder.
