Huffman signed a minor league contract with the Cardinals on Friday that included an invite to spring training, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Huffman posted an impressive .892 OPS with 17 home runs and 33 doubles as a member of the Tigers' Triple-A affiliate in Toledo last season. The Cardinals have plenty of other options at the corner outfield spots and first base, so the 31-year-old will likely have to act as organizational depth unless St. Louis is marred with injuries over the course of the season.
Huffman signed a minor-league deal with the Tigers on Wednesday. Known for his defensive prowess in the outfield, Huffman will offer the Tigers some organizational depth.
