Hart views birthday as big date in recovery

Brewers right fielder Corey Hart turns 29 on March 24, and views it as an important date on his way back from a rib-cage strain by the team’s March 31 season-opener in Cincinnati. 
“I told my wife, if I can get on the field by then, I’ll be on the field Opening Day,” a frustrated Hart said Tuesday. “If not, I’ll be worried. I never imagined it would take this long.”
Hart felt a muscle along his left side “grab” on Feb. 26 during an outfield drill. He tried taking fly balls on Saturday but felt it again, and has been limited to training room treatment in the days since. 
He was to be examined by a team doctor again on Tuesday. 
“It’s just not getting better,” he said. “Every time I try to do something, it feels like I get stabbed.”
