Right fielder Corey Hart needs surgery on his right knee that will sideline him for up to a month. About 15 minutes before the Brewers' spring training opener, the club scratched Hart from the lineup because of swelling in his right knee. He went for an MRI that revealed the tear. The Brewers said he'll miss three to four weeks. Assistant GM Gord Ash said Hart has had ongoing knee issues but that it's never been this bad. Hart hit .285 with 26 homers and 63 RBIs last season, when he hit leadoff during Rickie Weeks' prolonged absence from the lineup. Two years ago, he went deep 31 times and drove in 102 runs. Weeks was a late scratch Sunday with right shoulder tightness.

Parra: 'I'm healthy right now'

MILWAUKEE For the Brewers, 2011 was one of the most memorable seasons in franchise history. For Manny Parra, it was nothing short of a disaster.

Ryan Braun already dealing with hecklers during spring training

Ryan Braun may have won his appeal, but he has lost plenty of fans. He will not be punished in any way for allegedly testing positive for elevated levels of testosterone, but the issue was one with the handling of the sample rather than the results themselves. Braun may not have taken anything illegal, but it certainly looks like he’s fortunate somebody failed to do their job properly...

Union thinks Braun test leak was isolated case

ESPN reported in December that Braun tested...

Biggest hurdle yet | BREWERS BY POSITION | LEFT FIELD Braun's fortitude to get real test

Greater manufacturing plans | BREWERS NOTES
