First baseman Aubrey Huff has received a $2 million buyout from the San Francisco Giants after the club declined the team option on his $10 million contract for 2013.
Huff, 35, was limited by injuries this season and hit .192 with one home run and seven RBI in 52 games. He went 1 for 9 in the Giants' postseason run to the World Series championship.
Huff had signed a two-year, $22 million deal with the option for 2013 after the Giants won the World Series in 2010, but his production has fallen and Brandon Belt has taken over the first-base job.
