Giants decline 2013 option on Aubrey Huff

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

The San Francisco Giants declined their 2013 option on Aubrey Huff and will earn the $2 million buyout from his two year deal.


As expected, the San Francisco Giants will not exercise their club option on infielder Aubrey Huff for the 2013 NFL regular season. The option was worth $10 million. Huff will earn the $2 million buyout that accompanied his two-year deal.

Huff originally was re-signed by San Francisco as a free agent for two years and $22 million after the Giants won the World Series in 2010. The contract allowed for that 2013 club option that the Giants eventually declined.

Huff struggled in the second year of his contract this season, batting .192 in 52 games, knocking seven RBIs and hitting a home run. Huff was replaced at first base by Brandon Belt.

Huff was one of the key contributors to San Francisco winning their first World Series, as he hit .290 with 26 home runs and 86 RBIs. His postseason was pretty good too, chippin in by hitting .268 with one home run and eight RBIs.
