Hart hoping to return for Mets series
MILWAUKEE -- There was building optimism at Miller Park on Wednesday that first baseman Corey Hart will play at some point this weekend against the Mets. When, exactly, he could return to action depended on who you asked.

"I want to play Friday," said Hart, who has torn tissue in the arch of his left foot. "I unrealistically wanted to play today, but even if I hit it off the fence, I still might not be able to get to first base right now."

Said manager Ron Roenicke: "Friday is still a little bit questionable -- whether he can do it. Hopefully Saturday or Sunday, he's back in."

Hart injured his foot in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals and missed all three of the Brewers' games against the Braves. The team has a well-timed off-day on Thursday -- Hart will report to Miller Park anyway for treatment -- before beginning a three-game series against the Mets on Friday.

Hart was fitted for a custom foot support on Wednesday that should help ease the pain in his foot. The device should be ready for wear on Friday.

"It's tough because I don't want to have any setbacks and miss games," Hart said. "I'm probably a little apprehensive on it ... but I want to do everything I can to try to get out there."
