Aubrey Huff hints at MLB comeback

Former first baseman Aubrey Huff hinted on his Facebook page recently that he may be considering a comeback to baseball.

He hasn’t played since 2012, but the former MVP candidate wrote:”I do feel mentally, and physically stronger than I ever have in my life. Hmmmmmm!???”

If Huff were to come back, his best shot is going to be with an American League club. He’s 38, was never a defensively strong option at first base, and seems slated to spend most if not all of his time at designated hitter should he complete the comeback.

If he’s really feeling physically better than he has in years, Huff will have to find a team that’s willing to let him prove it. He finished seventh in National League MVP voting in 2010, but quickly went on the decline and played just 53 games in his final season.

Huff’s career spanned 13 years, including stops in Tampa Bay, Houston, Baltimore, Detroit and San Francisco. He received MVP votes three times, hit 20 or more home runs on seven occasions and received MVP votes in three different seasons. He owns a career .278 batting average, and hit 242 home runs before announcing his retirement in January of 2014.
