Corey Hart injury: Brewers OF/1B to have knee surgery, out for season

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Hart is set to enter free agency in 2014 after missing the entire 2013 season with two knee injuries.

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman and outfielder Corey Hart will miss the remainder of the 2013 season after suffering a injury to his left knee that will require surgery to repair. Hart was in the process of rehabilitating his right knee, which needed surgery during the offseason, when he began feeling discomfort in his left knee.

Hart, 31, hit 87 home runs for the Brewers in the last three seasons and has played his entire career with the team since being drafted in 2000. However, Hart is set to be a free agent in the 2014 offseason, which he'll enter at age 32 with two surgically repaired knees.

In 2012, Hart finished with a .270 batting average and 30 home runs while splitting time at right field and first base. Hart primarily played in right field for the Brewers in the five seasons prior, earning All-Star Game nods in 2008 and 2010.
