Corey Hart preparing for comeback year with Pirates
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) New Pirates first baseman Corey Hart has been through a lot. He's still recovering from both surgically repaired left and right knees. The 33-year-old knows it has slowed him down, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
"Speed was definitely a big part of my game," Hart said. "But, right now instead of being tall and skinny, I filled out a little bit, so the weight is there and the knees are there."
Manager Clint Hurdle wants to be able to utilize Hart both at first base and in the outfield.
"I know the kid can play outfield," Hurdle said. "We've seen him play the outfield. We've also seen him post up at first base. We've seen the work he's done in the batter's box. We felt it was a very good player to take a risk on."
Pirates sign 1B Corey Hart to one-year contract
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/19/14) The Pirates announced they signed veteran first baseman Corey Hart to a one-year deal on Friday, per the team's official website. Hart is expected to make $2.5 million from Pittsburgh, plus $2.5 million in incentives, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. |
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Hart will likely be the right-handed platoon option with Pedro Alvarez at first base. Hart has 160 homers in his 10-year career in the majors. Last season, he appeared in only 68 games due to injury, batting .203 with six home runs, nine doubles and 21 RBI.
Veteran Corey Hart drawing plenty of interest in free agency

|(11/10/14) Veteran Corey Hart is drawing a lot of interest in a free-agent market that is less than deep with power hitters, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
The oft-injured Hart played in only 68 games for the Mariners in 2014, batting .203 with six home runs, nine doubles and 21 RBI. However, he is a career .271 hitter with a .480 slugging percentage.
Corey Hart elects free agency
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/6/14) Corey Hart has elected free agency. The first baseman/designated hitter was designated for assignment by the Mariners a week ago homering six times and plating 23 runs in 232 at-bats.
Corey Hart designated for assignment
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(9/29/14) The Mariners designated Corey Hart for assignment. The designated hitter had six homers and 23 RBI in 232 at-bats.
|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.
