Jack Magruder of hears that the Diamondbacks have “made contact” with free agent Aubrey Huff. He’s apparently a target as the club looks for a backup corner infielder.

Huff, who turns 36 next month, batted just .192/.326/.282 with one home run and a .608 OPS in 95 plate appearances with the Giants this past season. He missed a lot of time with a knee injury and also took a brief leave of absence from the team due to anxiety issues. The Giants declined his $10 million club option about a month ago and paid him a $2 million buyout.

Huff’s production has dropped off the table since he was a major contributor on the Giants’ World Series team in 2010, so given his age and health concerns, it’s likely he’ll have to settle for a minor league contract this offseason.

    He’s really bad, can barely run the bases. Go for it!

    Yeah, he’s one. All elbows and knees. He can’t run and has warning track power. Go get him Sankes. GO GIANTS!

    Get ready for that rollover rally-killing slow grounder to second for an easy out. Huffy can do that in his sleep.He just has a hard time leaping over dugout rails to celebrate a perfect game.
