It's taken three guys to replace Hart

The Brewers expected right fielder Corey Hart to be able to play on minor league rehab assignment by now, but the lingering left oblique strain he suffered early in spring training still is somewhat bothersome.

Originally, it was thought that Hart would be out of action for only a couple of weeks. Now, manager Ron Roenicke says there is no timetable for his return.

"He's still trying to push things and get him to 100 percent," Roenicke said. "He still feels it a little bit on a full swing and a little bit when he's trying to throw hard. He's got to get through it. He's not 100 percent yet.

"We have to get him 100 percent throwing and swinging the bat. We don't think it's that far away, maybe a couple of days, but he has to get over that."

In Hart's absence, Roenicke has started three different players in right field in the Brewers' first four games. Mark Kotsay started two of three games in Cincinnati, with Erick Almonte playing the second game, and Nyjer Morgan got his first start of the season in the home opener.

Roenicke said he planned to start Kotsay on Tuesday against Braves right-hander Derek Lowe and wanted to get Morgan a start.

"I want to try to get some of the other guys in there," Roenicke said. "You'll probably see some more changes (Tuesday)."

Asked if Morgan had the arm to play right field, Roenicke smiled and said, "He tells me he doesn't, but from what I've seen, he has enough arm."
