Aubrey Huff’s road back to the majors will begin Wednesday in San Jose.
The first baseman, who sprained his knee during celebrations of Matt Cain’s perfect game, will begin a rehab assignment with the class-A San Jose Giants.
Huff has appeared in just 32 games this season due to two stints on the disabled list. He first went on the DL in late April due to what the Giants called an anxiety disorder. That caused him to suddenly leave the team before an April 23 doubleheader with the Mets.
Huff then fell hard on his knee while attempting to jump over the dugout railing to celebrate Cain’s perfect game on June 13.
The 35-year-old has struggled in his limited time this season, hitting just .155 (9-for-58) with one home run and five RBI.
The San Jose Giants begin a six-game homestand against the Modesto Nuts and the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Wednesday.
