MLB Hot Stove 2012: Colorado Rockies Spoke To Boston Red Sox About Deal For Marco Scutaro

Colorado Rockies beat writer Troy Renck has heard that the team may be close to a deal for infielder Marco Scutaro:

Renck added that Scutaro would become the Rockies' starter at second base and could hit second in the lineup.

Scutaro has spent the last two seasons with the Red Sox and last year he hit a solid .299/.358/.423, with 26 doubles and 54 RBI. He is entering the final year of his deal with Boston and is set to make $6 million in 2012.

UPDATE: In following up on the rumored deal, Renck has heard that talks "are now fizzling" between the Rockies and Red Sox. Boston is apparently reluctant to move Scutaro because it does not have a suitable replacement at shortstop.
