The Giants plan to keep Scutaro in the organization as he works his way back from a career-threatening back injury.
The procedure, performed last month by Dr. Michael Wang, was intended to "alleviate the troublesome area at level L-2/L-3" of Scutaro's spine, according to The Associated Press. At least four months must pass before doctors can determine whether Scutaro will be able to play baseball again.
