|Corey Hart 'probably a couple weeks away' from rehab stint|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/13) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told MLB.com on Wednesday that Corey Hart has been making progress in his return from right knee surgery and could be nearing a rehab assignment.
Hart is eligible to come off the 60-day disabled list May 30.
"Hart has been out running four days now without trying to take the weight off it," Roenicke said. "That is a good sign; we're still probably a couple weeks away from him going out on a rehab. That's kind of guessing -- I don't mean exactly -- but we're somewhere in there. Then we'll see how long he goes out for."

(5/12/13) Brewers first basemen Corey Hart, on the 60-day disabled list with a knee injury, said he isn't sure whether he will be ready to return once his stint on the DL expires May 30, MLB.com reports. Hart added that he hasn't experienced any setbacks but that his rehab is going slower than expected
"It really depends. If I have one really good week, then I can go play [for a minor-league affiliate]," Hart said. "Or, it could take until the middle of June. I don't know until I can do quick movements without it hurting, and we're not there yet."

(5/7/13) In his Reality Check column Tuesday, Scott White set about ranking his top disabled list stashes, and he ranks Brewers first baseman Corey Hart No. 12. Hart has been disappointing already, in the sense that his recovery from knee surgery has already taken longer than expected; he is not eligible to return until May 30, when he comes off the 60-day DL.
However, Hart is also one of the most dependable power hitters in the league over the last few years, and he should avoid the physical pounding of an outfielder when he returns. Hart has hit at least 20 home runs in five of the last six years, and he has hit at least .268 in as many seasons as well.
The top of the Brewers' order is playing at a high level, but their No. 4 hitters are putting up a collective .524 on-base plus slugging percentage. Hart should fill that role and put up solid numbers right away, so don't think about cutting him loose as he recovers.

(4/29/13) Brewers first baseman Corey Hart told MLB.com on Monday that he hopes to return from the disabled list on May 30, his first day eligible. The 31-year-old has been strengthening his quad muscles as part of his rehab along with water aerobics and throwing. He underwent surgery on his right knee in January.
"I've progressed a lot lately," Hart said. "Over the last week and a half, I've done a lot. Everything's going well."

(4/19/13) Brewers outfielder Corey Hart showed progress from his knee injury during a visit with team doctors Thrusday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Hart was shifted to the 60-day disabled list last week after showing slow recovery from the injury. Hart said he's still having issues with strength in his quadriceps above the knee.
Still, "there have been no setbacks," Hart said, and as such he should be able to return on May 30, the first date he is eligible to be activated.
|Corey Hart moved to a new position in 2012, but at the plate, very little had changed from the previous two seasons. Mat Gamel tore the ACL in his right knee one month into the season, and that necessitated Hart's move from the outfield to first base. He responded by posting his second 30-homer season and tying a career high with 91 runs scored, and he finished among the top 10 first basemen in standard Rotisserie and Head-to-Head formats. Aside from a slight uptick in strikeouts and a corresponding dip in batting average, Hart has been a beacon of consistency since 2010, and at age 31, he could keep this pace up for at least another year or two. Though he will remain at first base, Hart got more than enough playing time in at right field to be outfield-eligible for 2013. That will help his value a little, but because he may need knee surgery and could miss up to six weeks of the season, wait until the middle rounds of standard mixed league drafts to take Hart.
