Hart returns to action in Minor League game
PHOENIX -- Brewers right fielder Corey Hart, three weeks and one day removed from surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, returned to action and went 2-for-4 in a Triple-A game on Wednesday at Maryvale Baseball Park.

"It will be nice to get out there today and have some kind of adrenaline," Hart said earlier in the day.

He struck out in his first two at-bats, singled the third time up and then doubled. Hart, who did not play in the field, debuted without incident, and is scheduled to repeat the exercise on Thursday.

If he gets through that game without any issues, Hart could debut in the outfield on Friday, when the Sounds play the Louisville Bats in Goodyear, Ariz.

The Triple-A game had some star power Wednesday. Closer John Axford pitched two innings, a chance to build up his pitch count and get a feel for pitching, sitting and getting up to pitch again. Axford said his next step is pitching back-to-back games later this week.
