Corey Hart was slated for knee surgery. Then he postponed it in order to get a second opinion. Then he got his second opinion. It apparently matched the first:

Brewers spokesperson Mike Vassallo reports that Dr. William Raasch performed a debridement of [Hart's] knee joint surface and repaired a “small” meniscal tear. Recovery time is expected to be four months.

Hart will be back in late May, at the earliest. Until then it’s Mat Gamel. Try to contain your excitement, Brewers fans.

    First Greinke, now Hart. Do Brewers players not realize what the offseason is?

    Makes me wonder what Hart was thinking, especially coming into a contract year. It sounds like he had just started to get himself into shape so he wouldn’t be totally winded when Spring Training starts and noticed that his knee was still bothering him. What’s he been doing since October?

      The guy got hurt training. It happens all the time. It happens more often to joints you’ve already injured, which this was.

      It doesn’t sound anything like what you’re suggesting, it sounds a lot more like he was ramping up his training, which is what everyone’s doing right now. Why on earth would you assume he’s been sitting on his butt?

    Gamel is a Quad-A player, can’t hit big league pitching. Start our Minor League P.O.Y. Hunter Morris.

      Get over Morris. He wont see the Majors this year until Septemeber if at all. He’s also not projected to be anything more than an ok hitter at the MLB level. And Gamel was actually playing decent last year before he got hurt.
