(2/25/2015) 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."
