Aubrey Huff, who last played in the majors in 2012, intends to attempt a comeback this winter at age 39.
Huff wasn't any good at age 34 or 35, so it's hard to imagine that he has anything to offer teams four years later. Still, there's no harm in trying, we imagine. Huff is a career .278/.342/.464 hitter with 242 homers in 6,104 major league at-bats. He'll be looking for a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. Mon, Nov 16, 2015 06:32:00 PM

Aubrey Huff told Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish that he has officially retired and has accepted a broadcasting job.

The 37-year-old sat out the 2013 season after he was unable to find a job after a disappointing 2012 season with the Giants. He finishes a 13-year career with a .278/.342/.464 line, 242 homers and 904 RBI in 1681 games for the Rays, Astros, Orioles, Tigers and Giants.

Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger was told that the Yankees have not reached out to Aubrey Huff.

The Yankees are looking far and wide for corner infielders, but their search hasn't included Huff, who batted just .192/.326/.282 in 52 games last season. For what it's worth, the 36-year-old said last week that he's "pretty much retired."

Aubrey Huff said that he's "pretty much retired."

Huff, 36, was hoping to get an invitation to spring training from someone, but he's now content staying at home with his family. "I have no regrets," he said. "I love it. I’m having a great time with my wife and kids. I don’t even have an itch to pick up a baseball bat. I wondered if I’d feel that desire when everybody reported to spring training, but I didn’t." Huff's career, if it is indeed over, ended with a whimper, but he still would finish with a career .278/.342/.464 batting line and 242 home runs over 13 seasons.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that free agent Aubrey Huff remains hopeful of playing in 2013.

"He wants to play,'' said Huff's attorney, Ed Hayes. "He's working out. It's not a matter of physical issues. Nor is it a matter of mental issues, which he's addressed." There was a rumor in late November that the Diamondbacks were talking to Huff, but that never went anywhere. The 36-year-old will likely have to settle for a minor league deal after batting just .192/.326/.282 in 52 games last season while dealing with a knee injury and an episode of panic attacks.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said on KNBR 680 in San Francisco on Tuesday that Aubrey Huff will likely be on the team's roster for the NLDS.

Huff has been limited to just 45 games this season due to an anxiety condition and a nagging right knee injury, but Bochy believes he could be useful as a backup first baseman and left-handed bat off the bench. He may start a game this week to shake the rust.

Giants placed 1B-OF Aubrey Huff on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee strain.

Huff aggravated his knee during Monday's loss to the Mets. As lost as he's looked at the plate when healthy, the Giants certainly won't rush him back.

Aubrey Huff aggravated his right knee during Monday's loss to the Mets.

Huff hurt the knee while trying to leg out a possible double-play grounder in the sixth inning. He's scheduled to be checked out Tuesday, but it sounds like another trip to the disabled list could be in his future.

Aubrey Huff left Monday's game against the Mets in the sixth inning with an apparent leg injury.

Huff pulled up lame while trying to leg out a double-play ball. Mets second baseman Ronny Cedeno bobbled the ball, so the go-ahead run scored on the play. Matt Cain replaced Huff as a pinch-runner. If the injury requires an extended absence, one wonders if this could be his last appearance in a Giants' uniform.
