Hart could return to Brewers on Tuesday
MILWAUKEE -- Brewers right fielder Corey Hart is scheduled to play all nine innings for Triple-A Nashville on Monday and could be ready for his season debut with the Brewers the next night.

The Brewers will make that decision after consulting with Hart following Monday's game, and could decide to delay his return from a Minor League rehabilitation assignment until Wednesday. Hart missed all of Spring Training with a left rib-cage strain.

"We'll see how [Monday] goes," Roenicke said. "If his at-bats are good and he feels his timing is there, we may try to do something."

When Hart returns he will quickly resume his role as the regular right fielder. The Brewers will have to clear a roster spot, and both Erick Almonte and recently-promoted Brandon Boggs are out of Minor League options. Mark Kotsay, who has made most of the right-field starts in Hart's absence, would return to a reserve role.

"It's going to allow that bench to be stronger," Roenicke said.
