Brewers outfielder Corey Hart took a significant step forward Wednesday in his recovery from minor knee surgery, going 2-for-4 with a double and a single in a Triple-A game. It was his first live action of the spring, and he reported feeling zero lingering discomfort.

Hart served only as the DH in Wednesday’s game and will also be limited to that role on Thursday, but he should be allowed to play the field at some point this weekend. The 30-year-old slugger underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on March 6. He is aiming to make his regular season debut on or around April 10.
Hart batted .285/.356/.510 with 26 home runs and 63 RBI across 551 plate appearances last year.
