Marco Scutaro reportedly agrees with Giants

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

San Francisco keeps the veteran infielder for three years in a $20-million deal.

Infielder Marco Scutaro, one of the main players in the San Francisco Giants team that went on to become 2012 World Series champions, has agreed to a three-year deal to stay in the Bay Area worth $20 million, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reported earlier that the Giants continued to negotiate in hopes that the 37-year-old Venezuelan would accept a two-year contract with a vesting option for 2015. Janie McCauley, who covers the Giants for the Associated Press, said Scutaro wanted a three-year contract, which ultimately was what the Giants granted.

Scutaro also got interest from the New York Yankees and the St. Louis Cardinals. It was debated whether Scutaro would get the third year he wanted, considering his age. However, he has proven to be reliable and dependable with a strong work ethic.

He went 14-for-28 in the 2012 NLCS with four RBI and six runs scored, becoming that tournament's Most Valuable Player. He batted .362 with 44 RBI and 40 runs scored in 61 games with the Giants in 2012, after landing via trade from the Colorado Rockies.
