Corey Hart is eligible to come off the disabled list on May 30, but Adam McCalvy of reports that the Brewers first baseman won’t be ready to return from right knee surgery by then.

However, he has progressed enough to take batting practice yesterday and doing some running on the field. There’s still no timetable yet for Hart to begin a minor-league rehab assignment, so he’s likely at least 3-4 weeks from potentially rejoining the Brewers.

In his absence Brewers first basemen have hit just .200 with four homers in 42 games for a .560 OPS that ranks 28th among 30 teams, which is what happens when you’re so low on depth that you have to start weak-hitting middle infielders like Yuniesky Betancourt and Alex Gonzalez at first base.

    The Brewers announcing team were discussing this last night. Corey took BP and fielded one (1) ground ball. He said he felt like “a baby giraffe.”

    Have they called up Morris yet? Hart won’t be back next year, time to move on.
