The Brewers aren’t counting on Corey Hart to return until sometime in May, but he received good news on his surgically-repaired right knee yesterday.

According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Hart was cleared to begin intensifying his rehab after an MRI showed sufficient healing in his knee joint. The 30-year-old had surgery in January to repair torn cartilage and smooth an imperfection in the joint surface. While Hart doesn’t need crutches to get around anymore, it’s believed that he’s at least a couple of weeks away from beginning baseball activities.

Mat Gamel was originally slated to fill in for Hart at first base, but he had his second ACL surgery in the past year yesterday. As a result, the Brewers are currently looking at internal options like Alex Gonzalez, Bobby Crosby, Taylor Green and Hunter Morris.

    Somewhere in Goodyear, Craig just did a fist pump.

    Contrary to popular belief, he does not do his rehab at night.
