Marco Scutaro 2B SF 22 Days

Scutaro (back) has been placed on the 60-day DL.

Scutaro was already in danger of missing the rest of the 2014 season, and this move essentially confirms that notion. His transfer will clear up an extra space on the 40-man roster for the Giants' next round of September call-ups.

Manager Bruce Bochy acknowledged Monday that Scutaro (back) is unlikely to return this season, Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Scutaro already seems to be in vacation-mode at this point, as he's already turned to his offseason home in Florida rather than rehabbing at the Giants' spring training facility in Arizona. The 38-year-old still has one more year remaining on his contract after this season, but it's unclear if he plans on keeping his career going.

Giants placed INF Marco Scutaro on the 15-day disabled list with a strained lower back.

The veteran infielder has dealt with chronic back issues throughout the season, and managed to play in just five games during his brief stint with the Giants. Fantasy owners can probably write him off completely at this point.

Marco Scutaro (neck) finished 1-for-4 with a run scored Sunday in his return to the Giants' lineup.

It was only Scutaro's second game of the season. With his chronic back injury lingering and a new neck issue developing, the veteran second baseman is doubtful to be an everyday player down the stretch and can be ignored in standard fantasy formats.

Marco Scutaro is considered day-to-day due to a stiff neck.

Scutaro just returned from his chronic back injury and was already essentially going to be day-to-day the rest of the season. He should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Marco Scutaro admitted that his back tightened up on him late during Saturday's game.

It's not unexpected, as Scutaro still isn't 100 percent and was playing in his first game of the season. He's essentially going to be day-to-day for the rest of the season, but the Giants are hoping he'll be able to gut it out without going back on the DL. "I know my back is not 100 percent," Scutaro said. "I'll just try to fight through it, day by day, and go from there."

Marco Scutaro has returned to the Giants starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Scutaro has missed the entire season thus far due to a recurring back injury. While he will be eased back into action, he makes for an interesting target in deeper mixed, and NL-only formats.

Giants activated INF Marco Scutaro from the 60-day disabled list.

Scutaro is not in the Giants lineup on Friday, but will be available as a pinch hitter off the bench. He's worth a look as a middle infield option in deeper mixed league formats.
