The Colorado Rockies have sent IF Marco Scutaro and cash considerations to the Giants for minor league 2B Charlie Culberson.
As a utility player, Scutaro gives the Giants a much needed upgrade over Emmanuel Burriss. Scutaro owns a career fielding percentage of .992 at shortstop, .992 at second base, and .943 at third. Fielding aside, the bigger upgrade is at the plate, where Scutaro owns a career .270 BA.
