MLB Injury News:
There was a point when Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart was hoping to be back from his knee surgery in April. This has obviously long passed, and general manager Doug Melvin said today during his WTMJ radio segment that Hart may not be back until after the All-Star break, according to Tom Haudricourt of The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Since undergoing knee surgery over the winter, Hart has suffered several setbacks during his rehab. After Hart's April projection, the Brewers said they were hoping to have the slugger back by June. His progress has reportedly been slow but steady, and there was talk of him going out on a minor league rehab assignment in the not too distant future.
While that may be the case, Hart will have to spend multiple games in the minors proving he's ready to rejoin the Brewers since he missed all of spring training. Considering the Milwaukee's place in the National League Central standings, there also isn't much point in rushing Hart back from injury.
Hart has been a integral part of the middle of Milwaukee's lineup for the past several seasons. The 31-year-old hit .270/.334/.507 with 35 doubles and 30 home runs last year, and he owns a career batting line of .276/.334/.491 over nine seasons in the majors.

The Milwaukee Brewers have placed left fielder Ryan Braun on the 15-day disabled list with a right thumb contusion.
Outfielder Caleb Gindl will be recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday to fill Braun's roster spot.
Braun has been dealing with a thumb injury for over a month, and his first-ever trip to the disabled list finally was deemed necessary. After taking batting...
MILWAUKEE -- It's nearly impossible to figure out how a major league bullpen is going to fare. Relievers as individuals are unpredictable enough, but as a group they can be puzzling.
Established relievers can have bad stretches, simply because it's real easy for a pitcher working just one inning to have a bad, ERA-inflating outing.
Last season, the Brewers had a bullpen...

Ryan Braun's ailing hand has once again kept him out of a game. Braun was not in the starting lineup last night, but he was available as a pinch-hitter. The Milwaukee Brewers destroyed the Marlins, though, and did not need to have Braun hit. The All-Star outfielder is frustrated, but the team is hoping to have him back in the starting lineup by the weekend.
In baseball, strikeouts happen. Every player strikes out, some more than others. But no player in baseball has been harder to strike out this season than Brewers right fielder Norichika Aoki.
Entering play Friday, Aoki has struck out every 17.9 at-bats this season, by far the best in baseball, as San Francisco's Marco Scutaro is second at 14.5 and Miami's Placido Polanco...

Carlos Gomez added another impressive offensive performance during his breakout season.
Gomez had four hits, including two triples, drove in three runs, and scored three runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.
''He had a very big night, two triples,'' said Jonathan Lucroy, who drove in four runs.
MILWAUKEE -- Instead of huddling his entire family around a tiny computer screen to watch the draft, Josh Uhen decided to connect the laptop to the family television. It was going to be much easier to wait out the long draft that way.
But as it turns out, Uhen didn't have to wait very long.
As the first-year player draft moved into the fifth round last Friday afternoon, Uhen...

This weekend’s three-game series between the Reds and Brewers includes two players – Yuniesky Betancourt and Aroldis Chapman – who took a more tortured path than most to the big leagues. Both are Cuban players who defected from their home country to play professionally in the United States.
As someone of Cuban heritage, I’m particularly...
Alorrigan So you've done the impossible and gotten a couple of players early this year and for a cheap price. Now, they are overachieving. You're so proud of yourself for seeing what others could not, you think you should make a deal. That's not a bad idea. Especially if you are in need in certain areas. Maybe you aren't really relying on a player that has blossomed...

Normally we examine 10 position battles around the league, but this week, let's instead look at each league's bottom-five teams and think about how their depth charts could be affected by the decision to sell as the July 31 trade deadline approaches. There may be more teams in either league that begin to sell the next few weeks, and some of the teams below may decide to stand...
