CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that free agent Aubrey Huff remains hopeful of playing in 2013.
"He wants to play,'' said Huff's attorney, Ed Hayes. "He's working out. It's not a matter of physical issues. Nor is it a matter of mental issues, which he's addressed." There was a rumor in late November that the Diamondbacks were talking to Huff, but that never went anywhere. The 36-year-old will likely have to settle for a minor league deal after batting just .192/.326/.282 in 52 games last season while dealing with a knee injury and an episode of panic attacks.
