Second baseman Marco Scutaro was designated for assignment by the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday as he recovers from back surgery. The Giants said they plan to retain Scutaro and continue working with him through his rehabilitation following back surgery that could end his career.

Assistant general manager Bobby Evans said Scutaro is he’s ”not yet pain-free, which isn’t uncommon after surgery.” The defending World Series champions owe Scutaro $6 million for 2015, the final season of a $20 million, three-year contract signed in December 2012.

Outfielder Dexter Fowler has been traded from the Houston Astros to the Chicago Cubs for infielder Luis Valbuena and right-hander Dan Straily. Fowler, 28, hit .276 with eight homers and 35 RBIs last year in his only season with the Astros, who acquired him from Colorado for outfielder Brandon Barnes and right-hander Jordan Lyles.

The Colorado Rockies and right-hander Jhoulys Chacin avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $5.5 million contract, up from $4.85 million last season. The Rockies are counting on him returning to his 2013 form, when he won 14 games with a 3.47 ERA. McKenry had two stints with the Rockies last season after beginning the year in Triple-A. He finished with a career-best .315 batting average with nine doubles, eight homers and 22 RBIs over 57 games in Colorado. Two Colorado players remain in arbitration, and both are eligible for the first time: right-hander Adam Ottavino and catcher Wilin Rosario.
