Huff close to returning to team after knee injury
SAN FRANCISCO -- Aubrey Huff has been working out with the Giants since he left his rehab assignment on July 19 with tendinitis in his sprained right knee, and manager Bruce Bochy said the veteran first baseman is close to returning to the team.

"We're probably going to make a call on him the next day or so," Bochy said. "Possibly Friday we'll know exactly what we want to do with him."

Bochy said the decision the team makes with Huff's status could potentially be affected by Pablo Sandoval's condition, who strained his left hamstring in Tuesday's game.

Huff sprained his knee while celebrating Matt Cain's perfect game on June 13, and has been batting .155 this season in 58 at-bats with one home run and five RBIs.
