The Red Sox signed Marco Scutaro as a free agent in 2009—and he went on to have two decent seasons in Boston. He hit .284 in his time here and played a solid shortstop. Now, at age 39, his career may be over due to extensive spinal fusion surgery performed on Sunday. The L2 and L3 vertebrae in Scutaro's back were fused—resulting in a four- to six-month recovery period. At his advanced age, it is highly unlikely that the 2012 NLCS MVP will return to baseball. We wish Marco a speedy and full recovery.
