The San Francisco Giants put Aubrey Huff on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday while he received treatment for an anxiety attack.
Huff left the team in New York over the weekend after struggling at the plate and in the field. The Giants originally said he had a family emergency.
Manager Bruce Bochy said on Wednesday that Huff is getting treatment for anxiety. He is expected to rejoin the team in San Francisco over the weekend.
Huff has started four games in left field and six at first base. Huff was moved to second base for the first time in his career on Saturday and failed to cover the base on a potential double play, helping the Mets rally for a 5-4 win.
