It was a busy offseason for Brewers right fielder Corey Hart who, as he's done in years past, spent most of the winter months working out.He may have done a little too much.Hart bulked up to about 255 pounds, about 20 pounds heavier than he was at the start of last season, so in the weeks before spring training, the 29-year-old took to the trails around his new Arizona home....
Last season, Chris Narveson was one of the most pleasant surprises on the Milwaukee Brewers' roster.Installed as the fifth starter, behind aces Yovani Gallardo, Zack Greinke, Shaun Marcum and fellow lefty Randy Wolf, little was expected of the then-29-year-old.Quickly, though, Narveson established himself as a bona fide link in one of the National League's best starting rotations...

Last year at this time, right-hander Marco Estrada was toiling in the Brewers' Minor League minicamp with little chance to make the Opening Day roster. What a difference a year makes.
