Aubrey Huff misses doubleheader due to family emergency

6 Comments

Aubrey Huff missed both games of yesterday’s Giants-Mets doubleheader due to an undisclosed family emergency.

Bruce Bochy told reporters that he received a text message from Huff earlier in the day saying that the first baseman/outfielder had to leave the team in New York, with the manager explaining that “something very, very important came up” and “he had to go home.”

There’s no word yet on when Huff will rejoin the team, but the Giants are apparently hoping he’ll be available as soon as tonight versus the Reds.
