|Corey Hart goes hitless in rehab debut |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/24/14) Mariners designated hitter Corey Hart began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma Saturday, going hitless in three at-bats.
Hart was placed on the disabled list in early August with a bruised right knee. He has hit .203/.278/.314 with five home runs and 20 RBI in 207 at-bats.

(8/2/14) The Mariners placed designated hitter Corey Hart on the 15-disabled list Saturday, with a bruised right knee.
It is not clear when Hart suffered the injury, as he had appeared in each of the team's previous two games. He is hitting just .203/.278/.314 in 207 at-bats for the Mariners this season.
|Logan Morrison, Corey Hart to platoon at first base moving forward |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/24/14) With the addition of Kendrys Morales on Thursday, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon revealed his first base plans moving forward, MLB.com reports. The team will use Morales as a designated hitter, with Logan Morrison and Corey Hart platooning at first base.
Morrison has started 31 games this season at first base, compared to only one start for Hart, who was sidelined for most of the season with a hamstring injury.
|Mariners activate Corey Hart, designate Cole Gillespie |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/4/14) The Mariners have activated designated hitter Corey Hart off the disabled list. Hart had been out since mid-May with a hamstring injury, but is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox, as a designated hitter.
The team designated outfielder Cole Gillespie for assignment to make room for Hart.
Hart struggled in his first stint as an active player for Seattle with a .209 average and just five home runs in 139 at-bats.
|Corey Hart set to begin outfield work on rehab |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/2/14) Mariners designated hitter Corey Hart is now hitting .306 through nine games in his rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma.
He has served as a designated hitter in each game so far, but manager Lloyd McClendon told MLB.com he will begin working in the outfield in the coming days. That could be the final hurdle for Hart to return from a hamstring injury.
"He's going to play the outfield [Wednesday] and see how healthy he is," McClendon said. "We'll go from there and make an evaluation."
|Perhaps feeling guilty for leading them on about the status of his surgically repaired knee last spring, Corey Hart said he'd take less money to return to the Brewers in 2014 before ultimately signing with Seattle, where a vacant DH spot gives him the best chance of playing every day. Of course, after he missed all of last season with one setback after another, culminating in surgery on his opposite knee in July, Fantasy owners might not appreciate all Hart could do for them in such a role. In the three years prior to 2013, he had settled in as a 30-homer, .850-OPS type, making up for his suspect plate discipline with a respectable batting average. In 2012, he averaged 3.01 Head-to-Head points per game, which is about what Prince Fielder averaged in 2013. Granted, Hart hasn't been a model of health over the years, and for a 32-year-old coming off surgery to both knees and moving to a pitcher's park, regression is certainly plausible. But after a year in which he faked out more than just the Brewers with his unwarranted optimism, you'll get him for next to nothing on Draft Day. Seems worth it, no?
