SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants infielder Marco Scutaro was not in the starting lineup Friday night and will likely be given a few more days off this season.
Scutaro has had ongoing problems with an injured finger and a sore back.
"He's a guy who will need a break during the offseason," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He'll get some day games off because it is a little easier to get loose for night games."
