has there been another source saying 2b for huff?


I could use him at 3B when he gets back, especially if he takes time away from Wigginton. Right about the time he gained 3B eligibility on Yahoo, he went on the DL. !+)


For my league, it was the exact day he gained 3B eligibility.

Sportsline says Huff close to return

News: Manager Joe Maddon said Wednesday that Aubrey Huff (sprained left knee) is feeling much better and could take batting practice Friday night.

Analysis: He is eligible to come off the disabled list Thursday. "He's real close," Maddon said.


I'm still not counting on him 'til June (given his propensity for slow starts)

Sweet. That is great news because I need an OF with Hermida also down for another week.

This is the most endearing news I've heard so far. ;-D
This would be amazing if Huff could get back in the lineup in the next week. The most optimistic reports had him coming back for May, so very early May would be delightful!

I got tired of waiting for Beltre to get his 'sweet swing' back and dropped him for Huff. :-o

April 29: The St. Petersburg Times reports that Aubrey Huff said he expects to return to action next week. The plan is for Huff to take make rehab appearances at Single-A Visalia on Monday and Tuesday before rejoining the Devil Rays on Friday. He's been out with a sprained knee and originally was expected to miss considerably more action.

Nice, I picked him up 2 days ago and stashed him on my DL. Now to figure out who to drop..

Lugo
Crawford
Cantu
Gomes
Huff

Potent lineup right there.

I think Huff is going to put up some nice numbers this season.
