Corey Hart underwent knee surgery three weeks ago and then needed eight stitches after hitting his head while lifting weights last week, and today the Brewers right fielder admitted that he may not be healthy by Opening Day.
Hart, who’s scheduled to resume playing in minor-league games Wednesday, told Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he hopes to be in the lineup by the Brewers’ second or third series even if he begins the season on the disabled list.
By playing in minor-league games now instead of major-league games Hart’s stint on the DL can be backdated, allowing him to return before the usual 15 days, so clearly the Brewers aren’t anticipating a lengthy absence.
