The only thing that can slow Corey Hart down? His immune system, apparently.
According to Audrey Snyder of MLB.com, Hart is out of the starting lineup for today’s game against the Giants due to illness.
Hart is batting .311/.373/.623 with a .996 OPS over his last 16 games. He has four home runs and nine RBI in 17 plate appearances this week after entering Monday’s action with zero homers and one RBI over his first 81 plate appearances.
