2012 MLB Trade Rumors: Marco Scutaro Available At 'High Price'

The Colorado Rockies have all but been eliminated from postseason play. After finishing in fourth place in 2011, they have now sunk to fifth in the NL West with a 31-51 record.

As such, the Rockies may have a few valuable trade chips they can offer to franchises looking for a trade deadline upgrade. Among their hot commodities is 2B Marco Scutaro, who joined the team in a trade during the 2012 offseason. But according to Jon Morosi of FOXSports, interested parties beware -- the asking price is not small:

Scutaro is currently hitting .283/.334/.382 for the Rockies, and he has the ability to play either shortstop or second base.
