What about Marco Scutaro?




After hearing about the Carlos Beltran signing, I saw on MLBTR that John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle thinks the Giants should look into acquiring Ichiro Suzuki to help them with their outfield. Shea says that Bruce Bochy, the Giants manager, and Ichiro share the same agent. That doesn't mean anything, but its at least something to link the Giants and Ichiro together. Shea also says that back in the 2012 offseason, the Giants were discussing an Ichiro signing, so there was at least some interest back then. I'm wondering this...if the Giants want Ichiro, could there be a way to get the teams to line up a trade that would send Ichiro to SF and bring Marco Scutaro to NY? Would Scutaro even be a fit for the Bronx? He gets on base, but has barely any power anymore (not that he had a bunch to begin with). In 2013, Scutaro put up an OPS+ of 112, while posting a slash line of .297/.357/..369. He played exclusively 2B and had a fielding percentage of .976 (as a comparison, Cano had a fielding percentage of .991). Scutaro is under contract for 2014 and 2015. What do you think? Is there a better option, in both cost (money or prospects) and talent?
