Giants Re-Sign Aubrey Huff For 2 Years

By Bryan Rose

According to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com, the Giants have reached a two-year, $22 million contract with Aubrey Huff. The deal also reportedly includes a third year team option worth around 10 million dollars.

My view? Yes, the salary is a touch more than I’d have preferred, but, it’s still very respectable for a hitter like Huff. Add in the fact you can swing him out into one of the corner OF positions if need be (say like Belt being ready sometime soon?), it’s hard to knock the move. It also doesn’t force the Giants into bringing Belt up prematurely, being he’s still only 22.

Huff was playing extremely cheap (considering the production) last year, so the raise was expected and deserved.
