Hart excited to get going
Brewers right fielder Corey Hart, three weeks and one day removed from surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, is expected to take two or three at-bats (EDIT: Ron Roenicke said Hart could get as many as four) in a Triple-A game Wednesday at Maryvale Baseball Park. The Sounds play the Giants’ top affiliate at 3 p.m. CT.
“It will be nice to get out there today and have some kind of adrenaline,” Hart said.
The Triple-A game will have some star power today. Closer John Axford is pitching on the Minor League side, a chance to build up his pitch count and get a feel for pitching, sitting and getting up to pitch again. His next step is pitching back-to-back games later this week.
For Hart, if today goes well, he will be the designated hitter again Thursday. Hart could begin playing defense on Friday, when the Sounds play the Louisville Bats in Goodyear, Ariz. That’s convenient because it’s near his west Valley home.
