Hart ahead of schedule

Brewers first baseman Corey Hart was still using crutches Wednesday but said he was ahead of schedule in his return from right knee surgery.

Hart underwent a procedure on Jan. 25 to repair a torn meniscus and smooth an imperfection in the joint surface. He hopes to be cleared for more intense rehab after an MRI scan late next week scheduled for March 8, and remains hopeful about rejoining the Brewers before the end of April.

If he does, Hart would beat the original four-month projection by a full month.

“Everything is coming faster than they thought it would come,” Hart said.

This comes as very good news for Hart, considering his prognosis was much direr at one point. After his knee began barking when Hart tried to intensify his offseason workouts, he underwent an MRI and was recommended for surgery that would sideline him 3-4 months.

But that surgery was delayed a few days while Hart sought a second opinion from Dr. Richard Steadman, a Vail, Colo.-based specialist considered one of the world’s foremost knee experts. Steadman recommended a much more invasive microfracture surgery and told Hart he was out for the year.

But over the next few days, Hart said, Steadman and Dr. William Raasch, the Brewers’ head physician, conferred and opted for the original procedure. Afterward, the Brewers projected a four-month rehab.
