Arizona Diamondbacks reportedly pursuing Aubrey Huff

Jeff Zelevansky

The Diamondbacks have been linked to the former San Francisco Giant.

The Diamondbacks have reportedly made contact with first baseman Aubrey Huff as they search for a backup infielder, Jack Magruder of Fox Sports Arizona reported on Friday.

Huff has been a familiar face to the Diamondbacks as a repeated visitor in a San Francisco Giants uniform. He was an integral part of the team that won the World Series in 2010 but his impact would fade over the next two years.

Last year he was replaced by Brandon Belt in the Giants lineup and used almost entirely for pitch hitting. He had only 9 at-bats in the 2012 postseason and went just 1-for-9.

The 35-year-old is a career .278/.342/.464 hitter over a 13-year career. Last year Huff had his worst hitting performance, only hitting .192/.326/.282. He only appeared in 52 games however, with just 95 plate appearances.

Huff has experience playing all the infield positions, but has spent a majority of his career recently at first base.
