Corey Hart who didn't play a game for the Brewers this season while undergoing surgery on both knees said Thursday he would take a significant pay cut to remain with the club in 2014. Hart is eligible for free agency after the season and prefers to remain with the only team for which he has played. He had a $10 million salary this year at the end of a three-year extension. "We haven’t had any discussions" said Hart who dropped by to see his teammates on the final home stand as well as get checked out by the medical folks. "I’ve told them numerous times that if I was healthy I’d like to stay a Brewer and help this team out. They have a lot of good young players but they need a veteran presence. I’d like to be one of those guys. They want it; I just don’t know where that’s at. "They’ve kind of hinted (they have interest) but it’s early and coming off two knee surgeries I’m sure they want to see me get out there and run first before they actually talk to me.They want to make sure I can do the stuff I need to do which I’ll be able to do. It’s a process. Can I run and do the cuts I need to do. Hopefully they’ll see enough and keep me." As for what he would take to stay with the Brewers Hart said "I told them I would be very generous to stay here. I wouldn’t sit there and ask for anything outlandish. I’d definitely take a discount to stay here because I think I owe it to them to stay here and be a cheaper player. "Nobody wants to play for free but I basically sat there and watched all season. I owe it to them and the fans to come back at a cheaper price. That’s kind of what we’re hoping for but at the same time I don’t know what’s going to happen. "If it’s up to me I’d stay here. We’ll leave it up to them. If it’s something they want then I’ll be here."
