The San Francisco Giants were excited about the player Aubrey Huff was going to be in 2012. He worked hard during the 2011 offseason and got into the best shape of his life. Unfortunately, the physical changes did not help improve his success at the plate. To compound the issues at the plate, Huff battled panic attacks and only appeared in 52 games for the Giants in 2012.
Huff feels he has a grasp on the panic attack issue enough to make a comeback in 2013. Now, he just needs to find a team. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports says Huff and his attorney have talked to a few teams regarding a possible contract, but so far there has not been much movement. Huff's attorney, Ed Hayes, says the panic attacks happened once and Huff has since been able to get medication to control them.
Aubrey Huff is a 13-year MLB veteran. He has played for five different teams in his career, having the most success in his days with the Baltimore Orioles. Huff spent the last three seasons with the Giants and hit .264/.346/.431 with them. In his career, Huff is a .278/.342/.464 hitter. He can still be a productive hitter.
Last season was horrible for Huff, though. He hit just .192 and couldn't fight his way into many games. The Giants recently declined Huff's 2013 option making him a free agent. There is still a chance San Francisco takes him back at a lesser pay, but Huff would have to show something to indicate he can help the team improve.
