New York Mets

He was originally drafted as a catcher by the New York Mets in 2000.

Kansas City Royals

Huber was one of the top prospects within the Mets organization when he was traded to the Kansas City Royals before the 2004 trade deadline for José Bautista (the Mets then included Bautista in a package to the Pittsburgh Pirates for pitcher Kris Benson). Huber underwent surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee in August, ending his season.

This injury ended Huber's catching career, and by the time he made his major league debut on June 21, 2005, he was a first baseman. He made his first career appearance in the outfield on September 17, 2007 against the Chicago White Sox.

San Diego Padres

On March 26, 2008, Huber was traded to the San Diego Padres for a player to be named later. He hit his first career home run on April 20, 2008, against Randy Johnson of the Arizona Diamondbacks. He became a free agent at the end of the season.

Minnesota Twins

Huber signed a minor league contract with the Minnesota Twins in February 2009.[1]
