    Aubrey Huff has officially announced his retirement from baseball, ending a 13-year Major League career, reports Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish. “I’m officially done. I have no desire to play anymore,” Huff said over the phone on Saturday. “That has come and gone. I couldn’t even imagine picking up a bat and trying to…

  2. The Yankees have not reached out to Aubrey Huff

    Mar 12, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    Aubrey Huff

    I guess Aubrey Huff knows where he stands in the universe. Brian Cashman said yesterday they’d be interested in Derek Lee, Scott Rolen, Chipper Jones and, in keeping with the “old guys who really don’t play anymore” thing, likely kicked the tires on Charlie Hayes. But not Huff: Out of curiosity, asked if the Yankees…

  3. Aubrey Huff says he’s “pretty much retired”

    In January, Aubrey Huff said he still wanted to play. But as is the case with most players, the game has told him that it’s through with him rather than the other way around. No one called for a spring training invite and now he says he’s “pretty much retired.”  Still, he sounds like he’s…

    Amid the news that Mark Teixeira will miss 8-10 weeks with a strained tendon in his right wrist, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman acknowledged late this afternoon that the alternatives in the corner infield market aren’t particularly strong. And he did so in an interesting way. Cashman said NYY could look at a pool of…

    And I want a pony: Aubrey Huff, the consistent power producer and 2010 Giants hero derailed by an episode of panic attacks in 2012, is looking to make a comeback in 2013. “He wants to play,” Huff’s attorney Ed Hayes said by phone. “He’s working out. It’s not a matter of physical issues. Nor is it a matter…

  6. The Diamondbacks are interested in Aubrey Huff

    Aubrey Huff

    Jack Magruder of FOXSports.com 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…

  7. Giants decline $10 million option on Aubrey Huff

    Aubrey Huff

    San Francisco declined its team option on Aubrey Huff, giving him a $2 million buyout instead of a $10 million salary for 2013. Huff had an excellent, red thong-fueled 2010 season for the Giants on their way to the World Series title, at which point they re-signed him to a two-year, $22 million contract that…

    Like a lot of refusals to decline options, this one is not really news. But the way it is stated by Andrew Baggarly is Tweet of the Day-worthy: Nothing official, but Giants will decline $10 million option on Aubrey Huff and choose $2 mil buyout. They didn’t get THAT drunk last night. — Andrew Baggarly…

    Each winter we keep tabs on which players — and sometimes which managers or even bloggers — report to spring training in The Best Shape of Their Lives.  Let’s see how the winter 2011-12 roster did compared to their 2011 seasons when, presumably, they were in terrible shape. Note: there may have been a few…

  10. Giants settle on Hector Sanchez as Game 3 designated hitter

    Oct 26, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

    Hector Sanchez

    The Giants will go with their 22-year-old backup catcher as their designated hitter in Game 3 of the World Series in Detroit on Saturday. Hector Sanchez is getting the call for the third time in the postseason. Aubrey Huff was the most likely alternative in the spot. Both of Sanchez’s previous assignments this month came…

  11. Giants blow past Cardinals in Game 7 of NLCS to advance to World Series

    Giants Reuters

    The Giants have faced elimination six different times this postseason. Yet they are still standing. Game 7 of the NLCS wasn’t much of a contest, as the Giants topped the Cardinals 9-0 at AT&T Park in San Francisco this evening to win the National League pennant and advance to the World Series against the Tigers.…

  12. Giants probably not a playoff team without Melky Cabrera

    Melky Cabrera

    With Melky Cabrera done for at least the rest of the regular season after testing positive for enhanced testosterone levels, the Giants may well fall short of the playoffs this year. Though perhaps that’s for the best, given that the cheater is a big reason they’re tied for the NL West lead at the moment. Cabrera…

    Pablo Sandoval strained his left hamstring while stretching for a throw at first base on Monday and the Giants have decided they won’t go short-handed on their roster any longer. Per Amy Gutierrez of CSNBayArea.com, Sandoval was placed on the disabled list this afternoon while light-hitting infielder Emmanuel Burriss was designated for assignment and first…

    The unforeseen consqeunce of the rise of no-hitters and perfect games throughout baseball; the simultaneous rise of celebration-related injuries. Two weeks after Mets reliever Ramon Ramirez was hurt following Johan Santana’s no-hitter, Aubrey Huff has joined him on the disabled list with a knee injury sustained celebrating Matt Cain’s perfect game Wednesday night.

    Apparently it’s the new in thing; get a no-hitter going and then exit with a groin strain. Of course, Alexi Ogando today was only three innings along in his outing against the Giants, not six innings like Kevin Millwood on Friday. And Ogando wasn’t going to last all that much longer anyway; the 28-year-old was…

    Aubrey Huff has missed the past few Giants games with what was originally referred to as a “family emergency.”  It may be more complicated than that, however, as the Giants have placed him on the 15-day disabled list with anxiety disorder.

    The Mets beat the Giants 5-4 this afternoon, but whether anyone actually deserved to win, well, that’s up for debate. The Mets certainly appeared to be in control entering the top of the ninth, as Frank Francisco was handed a 4-1 lead after Mike Pelfrey tossed eight innings of one-run ball. However, Francisco was pulled…

He went 1-for-10 with five strikeouts and has been on the bench for each of the past four games, including this afternoon’s matchup against the Pirates despite right-hander James McDonald being on the mound. In fact, three of the four…
