Pirates_vs_brewers_0bf6
When Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart’s knee surgery was announced last week, the procedure was expected to sideline him for four months. This would have him out into the month of May, but now the slugger is saying he’s ahead of schedule and aiming to return by the end of April, according to ESPN. "If it takes a little longer then mid to end of May, but I feel good about end of April," Hart said in a text message. "So basically like 2011, when I came back and hit 26 homers in five months." Hart has begun rehabbing less than two weeks after the surgery. He is set to undergo an MRI in three weeks to determine how the recovery process has gone, and if all goes well there’s a “realistic” chance he could be ready to play by the end of April, according to ESPN. That’s still a lot of ifs, and we all know that setbacks tend to arise when players push recovery. Hopefully Hart can return sooner than expected, but it’s also important that he doesn’t worsen things and delay his return from injury even more.

Gamel gets shot at first base with Hart out
