Marco Scutaro News


Marcos Hernandez "Marco" Scutaro ( /ˈskuːtəroʊ/; born October 30, 1975) is a Venezuelan professional baseball shortstop with the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball. A native of Yaracuy State, Venezuela, Scutaro formerly played with the New York Mets (2002–2003), Oakland Athletics (2004–2007) and the Toronto Blue Jays (2008–2009). He bats and throws right-handed.

After spending seven seasons in minor league baseball in the Indians and Brewers organizations, and two seasons with the Mets as a backup, Scutaro landed a starting second baseman position after Mark Ellis had a season-ending shoulder injury during 2004 spring training. Scutaro was also in the 2005 documentary film "A Player to Be Named Later" which followed various players from Indianapolis Indians, the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, for one season.

In 2004, he reached career highs in batting average (.273), RBI (43), runs (50), hits (124), doubles (32), at bats (455) and games played (137). He played multiple positions, including second base, shortstop, third base, and left field.
