It is not yet known when Hart will be able to return to the Pirates, though he could be a possible contributor down the stretch as they head towards the postseason.

Pirates 1B Corey Hart playing unenviable position: left out


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2015) Pirates veteran Corey Hart has played plenty of first base and outfield during his 12-year major league career. But in 2015, he has become more familiar with a relatively new position for him: left out.

Hart has started just seven of the 29 games in which he has appeared. He has eight hits in 40 at-bats. He has even been bypassed against most left-handers, including Sunday with Braves southpaw Alex Wood on the mound. Sean Rodriguez started at first with Jose Tabata in right.

A .287 lifetime hitter against southpaws, Hart signed a one year, $2.5 million contract with the Pirates in the offseason. He was supposed to platoon with Pedro Alvarez at first, but it hasn't worked out that way. And Clint Hurdle is making no promises.

"Right now, he's working," Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "He's doing the best he can with the opportunities he gets. It's the way it is. Right now, it's a hard place. We'll see what the homestand brings."

Hart is batting .286 with one home run and six RBI in 19 games against right-handed pitchers, while he is batting .111 with one double and one RBI in 11 games against lefties.

Pirates' Gregory Polanco and Pedro Alvarez not starting Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/13/2015) With a left-hander on the mound Wednesday, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has juggled his lineup for the matchup against the Phillies.

Left-handed batters Gregory Polanco and Pedro Alvarez are out of the lineup, while Corey Hart covers right field and Sean Rodriguez handles first base. Josh Harrison will move up to the leadoff spot in the order.

Second baseman Neil Walker is sliding down to the seventh spot in the lineup. This is the first time all season he has hit lower than sixth in the order.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Pirates are +107 money line underdogs at the Cubs.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has decided to go with Corey Hart in right field Tuesday and moved Gregory Polanco to left, pushing Starling Marte to the bench, the team announced.

Hart has made one start so far this season and is hitting .500 in six at-bats. He is a career .269 hitter while playing right field and .268 while batting fifth.

"He's just being challenged right now," Hurdle said. "We've seen Starling get in some funks. He's been able to work his way out of them. One of the ways you help him is just to sit him down, give him a chance to catch his breath."

 He is hitting just .115 with 14 strikeouts in 26 at-bats this season. The Pirates are currently the favorites (-120) over the Tigers Tuesday.
