ORLANDO -- The Brewers are considering bringing back Corey Hart to fill their first-base need.

It appears Milwaukee may favor a return of Hart over some other first-base options, such as Ike Davis and Justin Morneau, though there are concerns about Davis' double knee surgery.

Milwaukee has viewed a tape of Hart doing a light drill and he appears to be doing well in it. Word is, he should be ready for the 2014 season after missing 2013 with knee trouble.

Hart, a career Brewer, has said publicly he'd play in Milwaukee for a discounted rate. He hit 30 home runs and batted .270 in 2012.

A Brewers person didn't look overly enthused when asked abut Davis, who's available via trade, or Morneau, a free agent. He added that the rumored trade of Norichika Aoki for Davis would not be happening.
