|Corey Hart yearning to aid Mariners in quest for playoffs |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(9/5/14) Mariners designated hitter Corey Hart doesn't want to make 2014 a second straight lost season. He understands that the only way to avoid it is to contribute down the stretch of a pennant race.
Hart did that Wednesday night when he slammed a tie-breaking home run in his first at-bat since Aug. 1 in a win at Oakland.
"I told (Lloyd McClendon) that whenever he feels I need to get in there, I'm in there," Hart said via the Tacoma News Tribune. "I just want to be productive when I get up there. Have good at-bats."
Hart has been plagued by injuries for two seasons - he lost all of 2013 with Milwaukee to two major knee surgeries before signing a $6 million free agent contract with Seattle in December that included a slew of performances bonuses. But Hart has been out most of this year with various injuries. He owns a stat line of .201/.274/.322 in just 214 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 |

(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.
|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?
