Orioles Aubrey Huff Appears Again at Third Base

Though used almost exclusively as designated hitter all year, Aubrey Huff appeared at third base again Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Mariners at Seattle.

It was the first time Huff had appeared at third base since May, having been used only twice at the hot corner previously this season. Huff stands to gain more appearances at third base over the next week or two, as Orioles starting third baseman Melvin Mora deals with injuries.

Before coming to Baltimore, Huff played third, first and the outfield for Tampa Bay, though defensive limitations make designated hitter his best slot.
