Following in the footsteps of teammate Ángel Pagán, Marco Scutaro is staying in the Bay Area…
The 37-year-old Venezuelan baseball star has agreed to a $20 million, three-year contract with the San Francisco Giants.
The team’s vice president of baseball operations, Bobby Evans, said all sides had agreed to the deal, pending a physical.
Earlier in the evening, Scutaro had been weighing a two-year contract offer that included a vesting option — but he was seeking a three-year deal to remain with the World Series champions.
The Giants and Scutaro’s representatives met Tuesday at the winter meetings in Nashville, Tenn.
Scutaro, the National League championship series MVP, batted .362 with three homers and 44 RBIs in 61 games with the Giants after he was acquired in a July 27 trade with Colorado Rockies.
