UPDATE: Now the Brewers are saying Hart will come off the disabled list tomorrow.

==========

Corey Hart went just 2-for-15 with three strikeouts during a five-game rehab assignment at Triple-A, but he’s rejoined the Brewers in Milwaukee and is expected to come off the disabled list in time for tonight’s game.

Hart has been sidelined since mid-March with a strained oblique muscle, with his return timetable being pushed back several times along the way.

In his place the Brewers have primarily used a right field platoon of Mark Kotsay versus righties and Erick Almonte versus lefties, but they’ve gotten a combined .698 OPS from right fielders to rank 13th among NL teams. Hart hit .283 with 31 homers and an .865 OPS last season, signing a three-year, $26.5 million contract extension in August.
