Chad Huffman seems to be on his way to New York.
Donnie Collins is reporting that Huffman has been pulled from tonight’s lineup in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and is apparently on his way to New York to take the roster spot of Marcus Thames.
This would be Huffman’s first big league call up. He was claimed off waivers from San Diego earlier this season. He was hitting .279 with five home runs in Triple-A. He has a reputation as a hard worker, and four of his past five games were multi-hit. In his minor league career he has been primarily a left fielder, with a few starts at first base and right field. He’s played center, but not since his first season.
