Aubrey Huff is 'pretty much retired'

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

The former Giants, Rays, and Orioles' infielder/outfielder seems to have come to terms with his baseball career being over after 13 seasons.

Not only is veteran corner infielder/outfielder Aubrey Huff not on the Yankees' radar despite their latest injury woes, he's failed to garner much attention of any of the 29 other clubs as well. While other players might gripe about not getting calls from interested teams, Huff seems content to hang up his cleats for good, he tells Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle:

"I’m pretty much retired," Huff just said by phone. He had hoped to get a spring-training invite but got no calls over the winter...

"I have no regrets," he said. "I love it. I’m having a great time with my wife and kids. I don’t even have an itch to pick up a baseball bat. I wondered if I’d feel that desire when everybody reported to spring training, but I didn’t."

Huff, 36, was a huge part of the San Francisco's Giants' World Series run in 2010 -- putting up a .290/.385/.506 line with 26 home runs on the year -- but his numbers and playing time declined sharply over the last two seasons. Huff made it into only 52 games for the Giants in 2012, missing significant time because of knee injuries and an anxiety disorder.

Huff received just 10 plate appearances during the club's second march through the playoffs to the World Series, but will still get that second ring to put on his mantle.

If he does indeed retire, Huff will do so as a .278/.342/.464 hitter with 242 home runs in 1,681 big-league games -- good for exactly 17 bWAR for his career.
