Huff went 1-for-1 with a solo home run in Friday's 12-3 loss to the Guardians.

Rangers' Sam Huff: Homers in lone plate appearance
Huff went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run Saturday in an extra-inning loss to the Twins.
After being recalled from Triple-A on Friday, Huff got the start at DH on Saturday. He slugged a 430-foot, two-run home run in the second frame in his first major-league plate appearance since Aug. 9 but was taken out in favor of lefty pinch hitter J.P. Martinez two innings later. Both of Huff's long balls this season have come against right-handed hurlers, but he's gone a respectable 5-for-19 with two doubles and two RBI (albeit with nine punchouts) against southpaws....

Rangers' Sam Huff: Recalled from Triple-A
Texas recalled Huff from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.
Huff will give the Rangers a fourth option at catcher as rosters expand from 26 to 28. The 25-year-old former top prospect has slashed .237/.275/.368 in 40 plate appearances this season at the major-league level.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Sam Huff: Optioned to Triple-A
The Rangers optioned Huff to Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.
With the return of Jonah Heim (wrist) from the injured list Sunday, Huff will be pushed off the Rangers' active roster. The 25-year-old backstop went 7-for-26 (.269) with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored during his latest stint in the majors, though he likely won't return to Texas again this season barring an injury to one of the Rangers' three active catchers....

Rangers' Sam Huff: Three hits in win
Huff started at catcher and went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's 11-1 win over the White Sox.
Huff recorded hits in his first three plate appearances in what was his best game of the season. He's scuffled in multiple short stints in the majors this season, most recently going 1-for-11 over five games during his third tour. With Jonah Heim (wrist) landing on the injured list, Huff and Mitch Garver are splitting the catching chores. The Rangers have since added defensive specialist Austin Hedges, but according to Justice delos Santos and Kennedi Landry of MLB.com, the Garver/Huff duo will continue to get the bulk of playing time behind the plate, while Hedges gives manager Bruce Bochy roster and lineup flexibility until Heim returns....

Rangers' Sam Huff: Homers off bench Wednesday
Huff went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 13-5 win over the Astros.
Huff entered the game as a pinch hitter for Jonah Heim (wrist), who left in the fifth inning. Huff's solo shot came in his first at-bat, which was also his first plate appearance since rejoining the big-league roster Saturday. The 25-year-old could have a short-term path to playing time if Heim's injury is anything more than a day-to-day concern, but Huff is unlikely to work his way into a starting role with Mitch Garver on the roster as well....

Rangers' Sam Huff: Recalled by Rangers
Huff was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.
He will take the roster spot that had belonged to Corey Seager, who landed on the injured list with a sprained thumb. Huff doesn't have a path to many at-bats, as the Rangers already have Mitch Garver around to back up Jonah Heim, who's started the second-most games behind the plate in the entire league this season....

Rangers' Sam Huff: Optioned back to Triple-A
Texas optioned Huff to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.
Huff drew only three plate appearances and did not get a start during his two-week stay on the Rangers' roster. The 25-year-old has posted an encouraging .836 OPS with nine home runs and 37 RBI over 41 games this season at the Triple-A level, but Texas is all set at the catcher position between Jonah Heim and Mitch Garver....

Rangers' Sam Huff: Back in majors
Huff was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.
Huff has spent nearly all of this season at Round Rock, where he's posted an .836 OPS with nine home runs in 41 games. He'll be the Rangers' third catcher and could get the occasional start at designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Sam Huff: Heads back to minors
The Rangers optioned Huff to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.
Texas needed to clear a spot on the 26-man roster for the return of shortstop Corey Seager (hamstring/illness) from the 10-day injured list, and Huff ended up being the odd man out since the Rangers already have two other available options at catcher (Jonah Heim and Sandy Leon). During his week-long stay with Texas, Huff appeared in five games and went 2-for-10 with a walk and an RBI.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Sam Huff: Called up Tuesday
Huff was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.
Huff will join the big-league roster for the first time this season, replacing Travis Jankowski (hamstring) on the active roster after Jankowski was placed on the 10-day injured list. Huff has produced a .267 average with five homers, 20 RBI and 11 runs scored over 90 at-bats in 22 games with Round Rock this season. The 25-year-old will likely operate as bench bat for Texas while making an occasional start behind the plate.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Sam Huff: Optioned to Triple-A
Huff was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock by the Rangers on Sunday.
Huff comes up short in his bid to be a bench option for the Rangers to open the season. The 24-year-old isn't long removed from being considered one of the better catching prospects in baseball, and he should get regular at-bats with Round Rock with a chance to help Texas before the end of 2023....

Rangers' Sam Huff: Returns to action Monday
Huff (shoulder) caught two innings and drew a walk in his lone plate appearance in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Rockies in Cactus League play.
Huff returned to action for the first time since last Wednesday, when he sustained a right shoulder injury in a game against the Padres. The Rangers never expressed much concern about the condition of Huff's shoulder, and his ability to check back in behind the plate less than a week later suggests he'll be ready to go for the start of the regular season....

Rangers' Sam Huff: Unconcerned about injury
Huff said Thursday that the right shoulder injury which forced him to exit Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Padres felt more like a cramp, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Huff's removal from the contest was initially attributed to right shoulder tightness, but if the injury is more in the vein of a cramp, he'll likely be ready to play in a few days. The 25-year-old is projected to begin the season in the minors unless the Rangers wind up carrying three catchers on the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Sam Huff: Leaves with shoulder tightness
Huff left Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Padres with right shoulder tightness, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.
Huff played just one inning before giving way to Cody Freeman in the split-squad contest. The backstop will be re-evaluated on Thursday. Huff has flashed tremendous power in the minors and some brief samples in the majors, but has battled injuries over the past two-plus seasons. Further clarity on his status going forward should be available in the coming days.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Sam Huff: Knocks fourth homer
Huff went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's 10-9 extra-innings loss to the Mariners.
Huff has homered twice in his last three games, and he's up to four long balls on the year. The 24-year-old has gone 8-for-35 (.229 average) since he rejoined the Rangers on Sept. 5. He's slashing .250/.311/.384 with 10 RBI, eight runs scored and a stolen base through 122 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Sam Huff: Slugs homer in loss
Huff started at catcher and went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-2 loss to Cleveland.
Huff was the catcher du jour after sitting the previous two games. Jonah Heim and Kevin Plawecki made starts before Huff returned to the lineup. Since being called up in September, Huff is batting .207 (6-for-29) with two homers, one double, two walks, four RBI and two runs scored while striking out 32.3 percent of the time.... See More ...

Rangers' Sam Huff: Doubles in win
Huff went 1-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's 8-7 win over the Athletics.
Huff is in a full-on job share with the switch-hitting Jonah Heim behind the plate, though it isn't based on the handedness of the opposing starter. Huff's started five of the last eight games since being called up. He has just three hits over 18 at-bats, but Heim has been fighting it at the plate since mid-August.... See More ... See Less
