Aubrey Huff retires after 13 major league seasons

Following a thirteen-year major league career spent with five different clubs, Aubrey Huff is ready to hang up the cleats and move into a career in broadcasting, according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.

Huff, 37, last played with the San Francisco Giants in 2012, where he hit .192 with one homer and seven RBIs in just 52 games. His season was also marred by mental health issues, including panic attacks that forced him away from the team in April. He later returned after seeking treatment, but was soon hampered by a left knee injury suffered while celebrating Matt Cain's perfect game.

Citing improved physical and mental health, Huff attempted to find a job last spring but soon realized there we no major league offers on the table. At one point he stated he was “pretty much retired” and content spending time at home with his family. Now his retirement is official.
