Texas Rangers Catcher Sam Huff will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee to have a loose body removed, per beat writer Jeff Wilson.
The Rangers' number two prospect was on the IL for a hamstring strain but injured his knee during a batting cage session recently. It will be at least eight weeks until he can start playing in games for Texas. He's an intriguing young prospect but it will take some time to make his way back following surgery.
Rangers' C Sam Huff has started engaging in "light baseball activity", per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Two weeks ago, an MRI revealed that Huff suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain. It seems that the treatment has been effective, as the Rangers' #2 prospect has resumed baseball activities. Huff was impressive in his 10-game stint with the Rangers last season, slashing .355/.394/.742. However, he is likely to start next season in Triple-A.
Rangers GM Chris Young says catcher Sam Huff was diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain.
Huff is going to undergo treatment for two weeks before being re-evaluated with an MRI. The 23-year-old impressed in his 10-game sample in the big leagues last season, hitting .355 with three home runs. Huff will likely begin the season in Triple-A but hopefully this hamstring injury doesn't keep him sidelined for long.
In Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks, Sam Huff totaled two hits. He went 2-for-4 and finished as one of the only Rangers hitters with multiple hits.
As one of the top Rangers prospects, Huff isn't fantasy relevant this season. More of a dynasty player to monitor with the plus, plus raw power.
