The description most commonly used by scouts to describe Huff is that he’s a baseball rat and the son of a longtime scout who grew up around the game. Huff brings a unique skill set in that he’s a catcher who also plays middle infield, drawing comparisons to the Dodgers’ Austin Barnes. His bat speed gives strength to his swing, and his plus arm is more than enough behind the plate or in the infield. He’s a below-average runner and may not have the foot speed to play shortstop at the next level, but he’s an average defender who would be fine at second base. A Stanford commit, Huff will likely be drafted much later than his talent, baseball intelligence and overall versatility warrants.
