Detroit Tigers announce four minor league signings
More on Huffman
In between his time with the Yankees and Cardinals, the 32-year-old had stints in the Cleveland and Washington organizations.
What’s more, he’s also spent time in the Detroit Tigers minor league system.
Signed as a free agent in December of 2015, Huffman was quite productive with Triple-A Toledo, registering an .892 OPS, a .286 batting average, a .387 on-base percentage, a .505 slugging percentage and a 158 wRC+ in 511 plate appearances.
He also chipped in with 70 RBI, 78 runs scored, 33 doubles, 17 home runs, 11 stolen bases and five triples.
Moving forward, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Huffman see time at first base as an alternative to Miguel Cabrera if the minor league veteran makes the Major League roster.
Next up in terms of big league experience is Niko Goodrum, who made his Major League debut with the Twins late last season.
While he only registered 18 plate appearances for the American League Central club, he proved to be much more productive at Triple-A.
He turned in a 102 wRC+, 71 runs scored, 66 RBI, 13 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 499 plate appearances for the Twins’ top minor league affiliate.
With past experience in the Majors and minors at all positions not called pitcher or catcher, Goodrum is an intriguing name to watch for a bench role.
