PLAYERS: Corey Hart
TEAMS: Milwaukee Brewers
Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart is making slow but steady progress in his rehabilitating efforts to return to the Brewers’ lineup. Hart began hitting in a cage as May started, and on May 12, he began running steadily on a treadmill. MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy reported that Hart is eligible to come off of the disabled list on May 30, but it could take him until mid-June to get back into the Brewers' lineup. Hart is recovering from right knee surgery during the offseason, and he reports having no issues with the knee since beginning rehabilitation. He says that he is ready to begin hitting on the field as he continues to progress. Hart may not begin plying rehab games right away, but as long as his legs keep getting stronger, he remains optimistic: “I'm getting to the point where I have to start doing more, and right now, the strength still isn't where I want it to be."  The Brewers are in fifth place in the National League Central at 15-20 as play begins on May 13. They are third in the league in home runs but seventh in runs scored. Their problems lies on the mound. Hart is a run producer that can help the offense overcome the pitching staff’s ERA, which is the highest in the National League. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Brewers Monday: Segura named NL Player of the Week

It wasn't the best of weeks on the field for the Milwaukee Brewers, but young shortstop Jean Segura continued to open eyes in his first full season in the big leagues. Segura was named the National League's Player of the Week after hitting .500 with a league-best .950 slugging percentage over the week of May 6-12. The 23-year-old had multiple hits in five of Milwaukee&...

C’mon Brewers, Don’t Crash and Burn Quite Yet

  (Image: zazzle.com) At 15-20, the Milwaukee Brewers still could rescue their season.  But after going 1-9 in their last 10 games, the team has incited all kinds of despair among a fan base that is restless for a winner.  Fans waited all winter for baseball and so far most of what the Brewers have done on the field hardly qualifies as baseball at all.  Technically...

Estrada bounces back with extra heat

Self admittedly, Marco Estrada had one of the worst outings of his career the last time he took the mound. After an extra two days off with two extra bullpen sessions with Brewers pitching coach Rick Kranitz, Estrada bounced back with his best start of the season. The right-hander allowed just three hits and one run over seven innings to help Milwaukee snap its four-game losing...

Brewers want Segura long term

Brewers shortstop Jean Segura has played only 80 games in the majors, but club officials already know they want him to be part of the team's long-term future. In fact, they knew it about a month ago. It was around that time that the Brewers offered Segura a long-term contract, according to his agent, Joe Klein. No deal is close, Klein said -- in part because Segura, 23, is...

Brewers look to keep offense going for Lohse

Runs have been difficult to come by at times for the Milwaukee Brewers, and scoring essentially has been a problem each time Kyle Lohse pitches. Reversing that trend, though, may not be easy against Pittsburgh Pirates starter Jeff Locke, who takes the mound at home Tuesday night. The Brewers (16-20) have been outscored by 25 runs while losing nine of 11 this month, beginning with...

Barrel Man Ale Is a Great Name for a Beer

  I’ve been a big backer of Owgust, the Barrel Man, and it’s been very cool to see him pop up prominently in the Brewers’ recent YOUniform contest (here’s hoping Ben’s design with the Barrel Man becomes part of the regular-season uniform options).  Seriously, Barrel Man rules, Ball ‘N Glove drools.  I do love the Ball ‘N Glove (or Ball in Glove or Ball and Glove...

Roenicke searching for answers after stinging setback

These are the games the Milwaukee Brewers have to win, but they continue to let winnable games slip through their grasp. With the chance to grab a win Wednesday night in Pittsburgh thanks to a pitching performance that was certainly good enough, John Axford allowed the Pirates to tie the game in the eighth while Milwaukee's offense went silent. As the Brewers ran thin on bullpen...

Brewers slipping behind Reds, Cardinals as slump continues

In order to have any chance to compete for a division title, the Milwaukee Brewers are going to have to beat the two teams currently sitting at the top of the division. As the calendar heads toward Memorial Day, the Brewers are clearly not playing as well as St. Louis and Cincinnati, having lost seven straight and nine of 10 to the two favorites in the National League Central. The...

Rank Relief: Michael Fiers should stay in the rotation…maybe

McCutch going clutch in extras….walk off My friend asks me on Google Talk today where I was valuing Andrew McCucthen.  Now, walk off home runs aren’t a category in any fantasy league I know, but if they were, you’d be happy with Cutch tonight.  This was your basic late inning relief no out walk off home run.  On a 2-2 count, Cutch took Fiers over the right center field wall...

Brewers 5, Pirates 1

Marco Estrada allowed three hits over seven innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the sloppy Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1 on Monday night to snap a four-game losing streak. Norichika Aoki went 3 for 5 with three RBIs and two stolen bases for the Brewers. Jean Segura added three hits and three stolen bases as Milwaukee ran wild against Pittsburgh backup catcher Mike McKenry. The Brewers...

The Brewers Just Stole Another Base…

When the Milwaukee Brewers win games, typically it comes by way of the home run. The Brewers did whatever they wanted to on the base paths with Michael McKenry behind the plate on Monday. Photo Credit: David Hague Monday’s game was not your typical Brewers-Pirates game, except for perhaps the end result. Milwaukee stole six bases, hit no home runs and the Pirates committed three...

The ins and outs of constructing the Crushers roster

Lake Erie Crushers shortstop Juan Sanchez may have taken what fans perceive as a step back from the Nashville Sounds, the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, to a Frontier League team in Avon, OH, but he’s still hungry. At least, he better be. There are two groups of players that find themselves in the Frontier League, those who were undrafted coming out of college looking...

Reds 5, Brewers 1

Don Lutz hit his first career home run, a three-run drive off the right-field foul pole in the second inning that led the Cincinnati Reds over the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 Sunday for a three-game sweep. Lutz, who made his big league debut on April 29, homered off Wily Peralta (3-3), and pinch-hitter Xavier Paul homered in the seventh, sending Milwaukee to its fourth straight loss and...

Start with a win

Jeff Locke and Kyle Lohse at 7:05. Beat the Brewers once. That's a place to start, right?
