PLAYERS: Corey Hart
TEAMS: Milwaukee Brewers
The Milwaukee Brewers have transferred first baseman Corey Hart to the 60-day disabled list as he continues to recover from knee surgery, the team has announced. The move means that Hart will not be eligible to be activated by the Brewers until May 30. The slugger was initially expecting to be back well before that date, but assistant general manager Gord Ash told reporters – including Adam McCalvy of MLB.com – that Hart and the team are now on the same page that a late May return is more realistic. "Given what he is saying now about his recovery, [the 60-day DL] seems to be more appropriate," Ash said. "I talked to him [on Monday], and he concurs that's a reasonable timeframe, which is what the doctors said all along. The doctor indicated he felt [Hart would be ready at] the end of May, and now Corey is saying the same thing. We didn't want to make that move initially, just in case, but obviously now we have to." Hart is continuing to rehab and strengthen his knee, but he’s yet to progress to the point where he’s running on a treadmill. Milwaukee has had to use a patch work of players to man first base, considering Hart’s replacement – Mat Gamel – also went down with a significant injury.

Bianchi, 26, has been on the 15-day disabled list since March 27 with left hip bursitis. The condition limited Bianchi to just eight spring training games and caused him to drop off of Italy's roster for the World Baseball Classic...

Gonzalez leaves game early with hand injury

Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Alex Gonzalez left Friday's game against St. Louis after being hit on his left hand by a pitch. X-rays on Gonzalez's hand were negative, and the Brewers announced he left the game with a left hand contusion. Gonzalez was hit by a 92-mph fastball from Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller in the second inning but stayed in the game before coming...

Brewers bats offer Lohse little support

Kyle Lohse did all he could to make his return to St. Louis a success. Sharp, efficient and locked in, Lohse allowed just two runs in seven strong innings. But Milwaukee's offense could manage just two hits, and the Brewers were shut down by Cardinals rookie right-hander Shelby Miller in a 2-0 loss at Busch Stadium, falling to 2-7 on the season. Lohse - who got a standing ovation...

Lohse strong in Busch return, but Brewers lose

Kyle Lohse had no complaints about his first start in St. Louis since changing teams. Going on six days' rest and off a very short spring, he kept his team in the game. ''The main thing I wanted was to get through this one,'' Lohse said after working seven efficient innings in a 2-0 loss to rookie Shelby Miller and the Cardinals on Friday night. ''I got...

Brewers look for first series win of the year

After rarely coming through when they needed to previously this season, the Chicago Cubs' offense provided some timely hits to end a four-game skid on Tuesday. Chicago hopes that can continue on Wednesday night as it looks to take the series finale from the visiting Milwaukee Brewers. The Cubs (3-5) didn't show much promise early in Tuesday's bid to end their losing streak...

Miller versus Lohse at Busch on Friday night

(AP) -- An unscheduled day off was just what the Milwaukee Brewers needed. It also set up an unexpected return to St. Louis for newcomer Kyle Lohse. The Brewers right-hander faces his former Cardinals teammates for the first time Friday night as these NL Central rivals open a three-game series.

Brewers-Cubs game postponed because of bad weather

The way their closers were struggling, Cubs manager Dale Sveum and the Brewers' Ron Roenicke could probably feel each other's pain. Both cut the cord this week. In Chicago, that meant Carlos Marmol was out as closer. In Milwaukee, it was John Axford getting, well, axed. And on Wednesday, everyone was getting a breather. The game between the Cubs and Brewers was postponed...

Why So Indifferent?

(Photo: Ben Rouse) The Brewers win on Monday got pretty hairy in the ninth inning, when the Cubs scored two runs and ultimately stranded the bases loaded.  Alfonso Soriano scored the first run, and was in scoring position thanks to defensive indifference by the Brewers with nobody out.  In hindsight, it seems like the Brewers might have saved themselves (and their fans) a little...

ST. LOUIS (AP) Rookie Shelby Miller allowed one hit in seven innings, a single by Norichika Aoki to open the game, and the St. Louis Cardinals had just enough to spoil Kyle Lohse's first start as a visitor since 2007 in a 2-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.
