(4/17/14) Corey Hart played his first game in the outfield on Thursday for the Mariners, and snapped out of his recent funk with his fourth home run of the season in an 8-6 defeat to the Rangers.
Hart took starter Tanner Scheppers deep for a solo home run in the third inning. He added a double and finished 2 for 3 with two walks, a run scored and an RBI. He is hitting .233/.313/.535 with four home runs and six RBI in 43 at-bats.

(4/17/14) Injury plagued Corey Hart will play his first game in the outfield this season on Thursday, which is an encouraging development for the Mariners.
Hart has been forced to deal with knee and forearm issues over the past months. He is also struggling a bit at the plate with five hits in his last 31 at-bats, though he showed signs of breaking out with a two-hit game Wednesday in Texas.
"He told me he's feeling good and his knees are fine," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said, per MLB.com. "I've got to go with my player, too. He said he's feeling pretty good. But we'll watch him. We'll keep an eye on him."

|Corey Hart getting time off to rest sore forearm |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/6/14) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said DH Corey Hart was given the day off Sunday against the A's in order to have consecutive days off to let his sore forearm heal a bit more, per MLB.com. Hart is expected back in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels following Monday's off-day.
|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?
