Multiple teams are interested in Corey Hart

18 Comments

Corey Hart fizzled in the second round of the Home Run Derby last night, but he’s still sizzling as a trade commodity.  Today John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Giants — who we’ve known are interested for a while now — the Rays
and the Padres are all interested in the Brewers’ outfielder.

Given the competition, Milwaukee should be able to make out nicely on the guy. A guy who was on
the brink of being benched as the season kicked off, by the way. Now, however, Hart is hitting .288/.349/.569
with 21 home runs and 65 RBI in 338 plate appearances.  All three of those teams could desperately use a bat with some whump to it and you can imagine that they’ll never surrender until he’s traded.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
