Marco Scutaro was scheduled to make his Cactus League debut on Sunday or Monday, but his back problems are persisting and now the Giants are keeping him out for the time being, Alex Pavlovic reports for the Mercury News.

Manager Bruce Bochy says that if Scutaro isn’t ready to go at the end of next week, the Giants will have to go with a “Plan B” at second base on Opening Day. “Plan B” candidates include Tony Abreu and Joaquin Arias.

Scutaro, 38, posted a career-high 112 adjusted OPS last season, his second with the Giants. He is in the second year of a three-year, $20 million deal signed in December 2012.

      C’mon Harry! You know the Blue Jays are smarter than that. Only an organization which has its headquarters where its hindquarters should be would sign an over 35 middle infielder to a multi-year contract!

    Can’t somebody find the lid to that garbage can and slam it down nice and tight? That Grouch just popped up again with his annoying stuff.
