Corey Hart took his time and went for a second opinion, but the knee surgery he was planning for this past Tuesday proved inevitable.  Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel reports that Hart, 30, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday morning. Team physician William Raasch performed the surgery, but only after specialist Richard Steadman in Vail, Colo., examined the Brewers right-handed slugger. As per Brewers assistant GM Gord Ash, "Everything went smoothly. Dr. Raasch didn't find anything unexpected. He was pleased with how it went. In the procedure, Raasch debrided the right knee joint surface and repaired a small meniscus tear. Ash continued by saying, "Now, the important component is the rehab period. Corey has proved in the past to be a good rehab patient."  Hart has been a fast healer in the past, but still Milwaukee is looking at late May for the Bowling Green, Kentucky natives' return. "Pretty close to it," Ash said. "For planning purposes, that's what we're going with." Hart is entering the final year of his contract, which is due to pay him $10 million for the season.  He moved from right field to playing primarily at first base in 2012, following the departure of Prince Fielder from Milwaukee.  Corey boasts an .824 OPS.  The Brewers will hope that Mat Gamel, who has had repeated cups of coffee since 2008, is ready to fill in productively until Harts' return. Interestingly, the team’s official website lists no one behind Hart on their depth-chart.
