Pirates' Corey Hart will begin playing outfield this week
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that Corey Hart would play the outfield for the first time this spring, sometime in the next week, per Stephen Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Hart has played DH and first base so far this spring. He's hitting .417 in spring training games this year.

Those, via the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, are Sean Rodriguez, Jung Ho Kang, Tony Sanchez and Corey Hart.

Pirates' Corey Hart goes hitless in spring debut
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) Pirates first baseman Corey Hart went 0 for 3 in his spring debut Monday, playing in a "B" game against the Twins, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
"It felt good to get back on the field," Hart said.
Hart underwent microfracture surgery on both knees two years ago but said he feels strong coming into camp.
"I don't have a lot of cartilage in my right knee. My left knee is fine," Hart said. "I feel like (microfracture) definitely benefited me. … Last year it took almost the whole offseason to (heal). This year I feel strong."
Hart will be looking to serve in a platoon role at first base or potential as a reserve corner outfielder this season.
Pirates' Corey Hart (foot) set to play Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Pirates first baseman Corey Hart (foot) will play in a "B" game Monday, serving as the designated hitter in his team's matchup with the Twins, MLB.com reports.
Hart cut his foot on a hot tub at the team's spring complex and required stitches to treat the injury. He was able to take grounders Thursday, and the issue shouldn't keep him from being available for the start of the regular season.
Pirates 1B Corey Hart spotted taking grounders on Thursday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) Pirates first baseman Corey Hart took grounders on a back field Thursday, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Hart suffered a laceration on his foot near the arch after he stepped on a loose hot tub filter. He remains hopeful of playing Grapefruit League games next week.
|2014 summary: Corey Hart had emerged as one of the top power hitters in the game before missing all of 2013 because of surgery on both knees, but that player was nowhere to be found in his return last year. OK, so he actually started off pretty well with four home runs and an .891 OPS in 13 games, but he hit just two with a .503 OPS in 55 games thereafter, becoming a fixture on the Mariners bench to close out the season.|
Playing time status: Hart did suffer two injuries along the way -- a strained hamstring that cost him six weeks beginning in late May and a bruised knee that cost him a month beginning in early August -- and of course, it's reasonable to think he wasn't at 100 percent from the get-go. Still, the performance doesn't leave him much hope of salvaging his career at age 33, especially since his new team, Pittsburgh, doesn't exactly have an opening for him.
2015 outlook: Hart's best chance for at-bats with the Pirates is as the other half of a lefty-righty platoon with Pedro Alvarez, who himself is transitioning from third to first base. Hart has hit lefties better than righties in his career, though not dramatically so, and the 200-something at-bats he'd get in that role wouldn't amount to much even if he did bounce back. Of course, if he shows signs of bouncing back, maybe he'll get a bigger role, but that's too big of an "if" outside of deeper NL-only leagues.
