Marco Scutaro Trade Between Rockies, Red Sox Appears Back On According To Report

That Marco Scutaro trade between the Colorado Rockies and the Boston Red Sox that was on and then off in a matter of minutes on Friday afternoon? Well, it's back on and close to being done, reports the Denver Post's Troy Renck. While Renck is unsure who will go back, though he believes it will be a pitcher, possibly Clayton Mortensen.

Mortensen was one of the revolving fifth starters for the Rockies in 2011 before moving to the bullpen later on in the season. He would be of no great loss to the Rockies when acquiring a career .270/.338/.389 hitter. Scutaro walks and strikes out a little over eight percent of the time and would provide decent defense at second base. He would immediately be penciled in as the starting second baseman.
