San Francisco Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff has had a year to forget with the Black and Orange, and it will only get worse as it was reported on Tuesday that the 35-year old first baseman will be once again placed on the DL after re-injuring his knee against the New York Mets on Monday night.
In a corresponding roster move the Giants have re-called Brett Pill from Triple-A Fresno to take his place on the team, and will be ready to suit up this evening against the New York Mets.
Huff has played in just 34 games this season for San Francisco, making his third stint on the disabled list this year. Huff went on the shelf back in April with anxiety issues, than again on June 13 after injuring his knee while trying to hop the fence of the dugout after Matt Cain's perfect game. He spent over a month trying to come back from the initial injury, and saw time in just one game before re-injuring himself while running out a ground ball in the sixth inning Monday night.
The Giants will still be short-handed this evening as Hunter Pence isn't scheduled to arrive in San Francisco until after Tuesday nights game has already started. He will wear No. 2 for the Black and Orange, last worn by Emmanuel Burriss, who was designated for assignment on Sunday.
