Brewers' Hart Out With Foot Injury

The Brewers first baseman could miss up to a week.

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart injured his foot Sunday when he made an awkward turn on the bases during the team's loss to the Cardinals.

Now, it appears he might be on the shelf for a few days, though the team is trying to get him some help so he can play. Adam McCalvy:

Asked about his level of pain, Hart said, "It's 10.

"I think today is better than yesterday, and I feel like I was able to do more than I thought I would today. I can modify my swing. I can get by. It stinks, because I feel like my swing was pretty good, and I don't want to modify it, but I won't be able to swing like I normally swing because of my front foot [and] how I plant."

The Brewers are having Hart fitted with a custom foot support Wednesday, and manager Ron Roenicke said he "hopes" Hart will be able to play Friday against the Mets. With Milwaukee in an unexpected spot -- just four games out of the second wild-card -- they could use Hart's bat.
