Huber, 22, signed with the Mets out of Australia in 2000. He quickly emerged as one of the minors' better catching prospects, though his star has dimmed somewhat as scouts have questioned whether he'll provide enough defense to catch regularly in the majors. He has enough bat to hit for average with 20-plus homers annually, but he's mechanical behind the plate and sloppy footwork detracts from his arm, which is average at best. Huber's plate discipline has taken a step forward this year, as he has hit .270/.402/.473 with 13 homers and 44 RBIs in 88 games, mostly in Double-A. He has thrown out just 14 of 72 basestealers (19 percent) in 2004. In 368 minor league games, he has hit .279/.387/.466 with 49 homers and 240 RBIs.
