SAN FRANCISCO (CBS / AP) — Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff returned to San Francisco on Friday and issued a statement through the team’s media relations department concerning his struggle with anxiety disorder.

Huff thanked the fans, media and Giants organization for the “outpouring of support” during what he called a “very difficult week.”

“I’m especially grateful for the texts and calls from my teammates, who are like brothers and have let me know they’re here for me,” he said. “My goal is to get back on the field as soon as possible. To do that, I have to focus completely on getting well. I know I’m in a public job, and I’ve been one of the more open guys. But sometimes you have to pull back and work on things in private. This is one of those times. I appreciate your understanding and patience.”

Huff was placed on the disabled list Wednesday. He is batting .182 with one home run and four RBIs in 33 at-bats.
