    Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has the report: As it turns out, first baseman Corey Hart now is having trouble with his left knee — the opposite knee from the one that has kept him out all season following late-January surgery. Apparently, concentraing so much on rehabbing his “bad” knee caused the other one…

  3. Corey Hart is “dejected” and nowhere close to returning

    Corey Hart

    Corey Hart has had multiple setbacks in his recovery from January knee surgery and six months later the Brewers first baseman still isn’t close to returning, leaving him understandably frustrated.

    No team has gotten less production from first basemen than the Brewers, but help is not on the way any time soon, as general manager Doug Melvin said during a radio interview that Corey Hart may not be ready to come off the disabled list until after the All-Star break. Hart has yet to play…

    The Brewers aren’t good and it doesn’t seem like additions such as Juan Francisco and the eventual return of Corey Hart will make much of a difference. Which led Brewers GM Doug Melvin admitted to Michael Hunt of the Journal-Sentinel that it’s time to rebuild: While not prepared to concede the division to the Cardinals and…

    Atlanta designated Juan Francisco for assignment last week and today the Braves traded him to the Brewers for minor leaguer Thomas Keeling. Milwaukee also called up second baseman Scooter Gennett from Triple-A. Francisco has been exclusively a third baseman in the majors, but given how awful the Brewers’ production has been at first base he…

    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…

  8. Corey Hart won’t be ready to return when eligible May 30

    Corey Hart Getty

    Corey Hart is eligible to come off the disabled list on May 30, but Adam McCalvy of MLB.com 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…

  9. Should the Phillies think about trading Ryan Howard?

    May 11, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Philadelphia Phillies

    First baseman Ryan Howard, 33 years old and still suffering lingering effects of an Achilles injury suffered in Game Five of the 2011 NLDS, should be on the trading block according to David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News.

    Milwaukee transferred Corey Hart to the 60-day disabled list, meaning the injured first baseman is not eligible to return until May 30. Hart had previously hoped to be back before then, but Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that he’s been “making steady but slow progress in his recovery from right knee surgery” and has yet…

  12. The Brewers are one awful baseball team right now

    Apr 7, 2013, 6:54 PM EDT

    Kyle Lohse

    First of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitches, even though Ryan Braun can’t play because of a neck injury. That leaves them with a three-man bench that just doesn’t work in National League games. Second of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitchers. Why on earth is John Axford pitching a second inning in…

  13. Aramis Ramirez placed on disabled list with left knee sprain

    Apr 6, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    Aramis Ramirez

    Aramis Ramirez was forced to leave last night’s game with a left knee sprain and he’s now looking at an extended absence. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, the Brewers placed Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list today and recalled utility man Josh Prince from Triple-A Nashville. It’s not known how long Ramirez will be…

    Today is my first day back at work in the fortified compound and I’m just now starting to feel back in the swing of things. It’s a good time, then, to look back at my ten days in the desert and talk about some of the things that stuck out, for better, for worse, for…

    Corey Hart is not expected to be healthy until late May. Mat Gamel just underwent his second major knee surgery in two years.

    I’m at the Brewers’ complex and I just got done talking to Corey Hart. For the second straight year he’s on crutches while I’m here, so that kind of stinks. But he’s having an MRI tomorrow. Assuming it’s all good he’ll be able to start the slow march back to playing condition.  And he’s optimistic…

    Injured Milwaukee Brewer first basemen stick together. From Adam McCalvy of MLB.com: Sure, it’s cliche to think of Major League teammates as family.

    Mat Gamel aggravated his surgically repaired right knee over the weekend, but as of yesterday the Brewers seemed optimistic that it was a minor issue and he could resume workouts as soon as today.

  22. Brewers revert to thrifty form

    Feb 9, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Ron Roenicke

    The Brewers’ offseason opened with speculation about a push for Josh Hamilton. 3 1/2 months later, their biggest pickup has been Tom Gorzelanny. Mark Attanasio’s Brewers won 96 games and went to the NLCS in 2011, and while the team lost Prince Fielder afterwards, it was able to bring in Aramis Ramirez as a replacement.…

  24. Red Sox sign Lyle Overbay as Mike Napoli fallback plan

    Jan 31, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Philadelphia Phillies

    Veteran first baseman Lyle Overbay has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Red Sox, according to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald. Overbay should have a decent shot at claiming a backup job thanks to Mike Napoli‘s hip problems, which could require some days off and/or late-inning defensive replacements. And if nothing else the…

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Philadelphia Phillies

    In an effort to add some first base depth following Corey Hart‘s knee surgery the Brewers are “talking to” free agent Lyle Overbay, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Rosenthal reports that Overbay has other teams interested besides the Brewers, but he played in Milwaukee in 2004-2005 and probably won’t find a better opportunity for…
