Aubrey Huff placed on the DL with anxiety disorder

30 Comments

Aubrey Huff has missed the past few Giants games with what was originally referred to as a “family emergency.”  It may be more complicated than that, however, as the Giants have placed him on the 15-day disabled list with anxiety disorder.

Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports that Huff is “getting treatment,” though it has not yet been specified whether the treatment is for general anxiety or something else.

Obviously these things are always touchy, personal situations so information may be difficult to come by.  But we’ll update if and when anything new comes to light.

I will say, however, this sort of thing is really out of the blue with respect to Huff, who has always seemed like an extroverted and fairly comfortable person all things considered.  We never really can know, however, what goes on in someone’s mind or in their personal life.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
