Corey Hart

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Brewers right fielder Corey Hart could miss opening day for the second consecutive season.

Hart will have surgery on his right knee to repair a meniscus tear and will be out three-to-four weeks, Milwaukee assistant GM Gord Ash told reporters (via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel).

"The tough part is that he will miss the at-bats here," Ash said. "But it could have been worse."

Hart had an MRI on Sunday and Ash said Hart would have the surgery sometime this week.

Last season Hart started the season on the disabled list with a strained oblique. Hart, who will turn 30 later this month, didn't play his first game last season until April 26. He did play 130 games, hitting .285/.356/.510 with 26 home runs.

Hart was a late scratch for Sunday's exhibtion game with swelling on his knee. Second baseman Rickie Weeks was also held out with right-shoulder tightness, but his injury wasn't seen as serious.

Okay [Valders Man], take a deep breath and calm down.

Cory Hart is defintiely NOT the most overrated player in baseball.  Frankly, he's not even close to having that title.  In fact, that statement is so over the top it really doesn't even qualify as a "rant" because it is so utterly ridiculous.  That said, Cory Hart is also definitely not worth what the Brewers payed him two years ago.  However, he is what he is - a middle of the road power hitter who's best years are probably behind him.  MLB is littered with guy like Hart (see Jason Wirth or Adam Dunn as examples).  Hart is still serviceable however that has never been a ringing endorsement for any baseball player.

Next time [Valders Man] chill out before you make another post that causes you to embarress yourself.

Huh?  You must have him confused with Rickie Weeks who`s way overrated & injured as often.  Hart hit .285 with 26 home runs, and sure with no Prince his #`s will drop but taht`s far too harsh when there are plenty of other players in the league who do far worse.

This guy is a pile. He is the most overrated player in baseball. He gets hurt every year and bats about .200 all season except for a two week strech where he hits .500 and crushes about 10 home runs. The crew should of traded him three years ago.
