According to the Denver Post, former Red Sox shortstop Marco Scutaro is the most likely member of the Rockies to be dealt at the trade deadline by Colorado.

The report states that the Nationals — who recently lost Ian Desmond for a month — and the Rays were among the teams in attendance at Chase Field scouting Scutaro. The 36-year-old  infielder has $2.3 million remaining on his current deal, which runs out at the end of this season.

Scutaro has primarily played at second base for the Rockies (71 games), while manning shortstop for 27 games. He is hitting .271 with a .684 OPS, also totaling four homers and seven stolen bases. The infielder’s best month came in June, when he hit .337.

The Red Sox dealt Scutaro last offseason for pitcher Clayton Mortensen, in part to free up money to sign free agent outfielder Cody Ross.
