After a lost 2013 season in which he wasn't able to play a single inning of baseball, Corey Hart seems to be having a much more positive start to 2014. On Saturday, ESPN's injury expert Stephania Bell tweeted that Hart is looking good after his knee surgery and now just needs to adjust to the speed of the game, having spent such a long time out.
Hart doing very well after microfracture on both knees. No issues running, turning. Just has to adapt to speed of the game after 18 months.The original knee surgery took place in January 2013. Despite optimism from Hart before spring training last year, as the season progressed it became apparent that progress was not as quick as he might have hoped. As the end of June approached, the Brewers finally announced that Hart would not make it back at all in 2013, and would in fact need to undergo another knee surgery. Bell's update is a good sign that a repeat of 2013 is unlikely, and hopefully means that the 31-year-old will get a proper chance to rebound in Seattle.
