Milwaukee first basemen have hit .188 with four homers and a .521 OPS this season, which is what happens when you primarily use light-hitting middle infielders like Alex Gonzalez and Yuniesky Betancourt there, but help is on the way.
Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Corey Hart, who’s been sidelined all season following January knee surgery, has started traveling with the team in preparation for a minor-league rehab assignment in the not-too-distant future.
Hart is eligible to return from the 60-day disabled list tomorrow, which obviously isn’t happening, but the impending free agent told McCalvy that he’s “pretty close” and mostly just “waiting for the running stuff to get better.” Of course, “the running stuff” is sort of important even if Hart has been fine taking batting practice and fielding grounders.
