Huff in holding pattern regarding activation
SAN FRANCISCO -- Asked Friday about his playing status, Aubrey Huff repeated, "I don't know anything."

The Giants first baseman wasn't being evasive or pleading ignorance. He was entirely sincere. Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed that the club hasn't yet decided what to do with Huff, who sprained his right knee June 13 as he tried to scale the dugout railing to join the on-field celebration following Matt Cain's perfect game.

More recently, Huff was bothered by patellar tendinitis in the knee. But Bochy acknowledged that a move involving Huff could happen soon, perhaps even late Friday night.

"He's at a point where he could be activated," Bochy said.

Bochy said the Giants had multiple options with Huff. They could activate him and place Pablo Sandoval (left hamstring) on the disabled list. They could activate Huff and create roster room by demoting another player or sending him to the DL. Or they could put Huff on another Minor League injury rehabilitation.

Huff last appeared in a game for the Giants on June 10. He's hitting .155 for them with one home run and five RBIs in 32 games. During his Minor League injury rehabilitation stint, which ended when the patellar tendinitis flared up, Huff hit .207 (6-for-29) with one double, one homer and four RBIs. He played four games with Triple-A Fresno and five with Class A San Jose.
