The Brewers revealed Sunday that outfielder Corey Hart needs arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and could miss the start of the regular season.

This according to beat writer Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (via Twitter).

Hart will be in recovery mode from the minor procedure for 3-4 weeks, meaning he is likely to miss the entire Cactus League schedule. Without sufficient warm-up at-bats, the Brewers will probably place him on the 15-day disabled list before Opening Day and leave him behind at their spring training complex in Phoenix, Arizona to get tuned up. He shouldn’t be sidelined beyond mid-April.

Hart, 29, batted .285/.356/.510 with 26 home runs and 63 RBI in 130 games last season for Milwaukee.

    Bet they’re extra happy they’ll have Braun now, not sure where the offense would come from with no Braun, Prince, or Hart.

    Will he wear his sunglasses during surgery? Yeah, dislike it if you want, but search your souls and you know it had to be asked.

      It doesn’t matter, they will cover his face so the surgeon doesn’t have to look at him.
