Aubrey Huff to Have Rehab Assignment Once Activated

Last Wednesday, the Giants placed outfielder Aubrey Huff on the 15-day disabled list with what the team described as 'anxiety'. It's now looking like there will be a rehab stint involved as well, once the 15-day period is up.

Giants GM Brian Sabean appeared on Chronicle Live Tuesday, and noted that he "anticipates there will be some rehab games involved to see how he handles the pressure of that," once Huff is activated.

Manager Bruce Botchy watched Huff take some swings in the cages on Tuesday and mentioned, "He looked pretty good. He looks like he's in a good frame of mind. He still has time on the DL but it's important he gets his works in so he's ready when he can return."

Huff released a statement last week, thanking the fans, media and the Giants for giving him a chance to get the help he needed. Hopefully the time off works wonders and he can get back onto the diamond.
