COREY HART RUMORS & GOSSIP

Contract Details For Corey Hart

Jon Heyman posted a tweet with Corey Hart’s contract details. We already knew that Hart was going to make $2.5 M in base salary and could earn that same amount in incentives, but those incentives weren’t announced until today. He will make an extra $250K if he reaches 350 plate appearances and then for every 25 PA after that(375, 400 and 425) he will get another $250K. He then...

Comparing Corey Hart and Gaby Sanchez

On Friday, the Pittsburgh Pirates signed Corey Hart for $2.5 M, with an additional $2.5 M in possible incentives. He will presumably play first base when left-handed pitchers are on the mound, but could also serve as a backup in the outfield. One of the things I noticed in response to the signing was the inevitable comparison to Gaby Sanchez, with some wondering why the Pirates got...

Pirates sign Corey Hart

The Pirates announced this afternoon that they signed Corey Hart to a one year/$2.5 million deal and DFA’d Preston Guilmet, who I can tell you with 70% certainty was a guy that they claimed from, I think, the Orioles at some point since the season ended. I suppose the assumption here is that he’ll be the right-handed platoon partner with Pedro Alvarez at first base, but he...

Pirates Sign Corey Hart, DFA Preston Guilmet

The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced the signing of 1B/RF Corey Hart to a one-year deal. To make room on the 40-man roster, pitcher Preston Guilmet has been designated for assignment. Hart is a name familiar to fans of the Pirates, as he spent his first nine seasons in the majors with the Milwaukee Brewers. He missed all of 2013 after needing surgery on both knees, one prior to...

Hopefully We Have Heard the Last of Corey Hart’s Whining

(Hart in his seaman/sailor/navigator uni with John Buck; AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez) Back in October, I was all for the Brewers re-signing first baseman / outfielder / probable part-time DH Corey Hart to a new contract, for at least one year.  I went so far as to call Hart “True Blue Brew Crew.”  At the time I felt Corey Hart, though often injured, deserved a new contract...

Player Profile #126: Corey Hart | 1B/OF | SEA

I find Speed Score to be a very interesting stat. I never hear it referenced in any kind of sabermetric article — probably because it’s very abstract and I’m pretty sure few people know what it means — but honestly, it usually passes the eye test. I wouldn’t rely on it for any kind of predictive purpose, but as an explanatory stat, I think it does a good job of objectively...
