SAN FRANCISCO -- David Huff won't be stretching doubles into triples anytime soon, but the left-handed Giants reliever feels good enough to pitch and was activated from the disabled list prior to Monday's game.

After joking that he would stop at second on a ball hit to AT&T Park's Triples Alley, Huff said he went through simulated pitcher's fielding practice and the tight left quadriceps felt fine.

"Throwing, I have no problem doing," Huff said. "Running, I probably have to back off because the quad is a little tight, but that's how every strain goes. It's just a matter of maintaining and being smart. As long as I can throw, cover first base and field a bunt, that's all I need to be doing."

Huff threw three scoreless innings in a rehab outing for Triple-A Fresno last Thursday, but has not appeared in a game for the Giants since April 21.
