The Brewers are asking a lot for Corey Hart

Doug Melvin has a funny way of not “actively shopping” Corey Hart. The Chronicle’s Henry Schulman:

Heard this: Giants
and Brewers talked turkey on Hart, and Milwaukee asked for Sanchez or
Bumgarner. Sabean is not eager to trade eith

I don’t know how you can possibly trade good young pitching like Sanchez or Bumgarner for a right fielder with a career OPS+ of 111.  Yeah, he’s doing great in 2010, but this is definitely his high water mark.  If you’re going to trade Sanchez or Bumgarner, you have to get more back than something like Hart. They should form the basis of a deal that brings in a franchise hitter, no?

Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports that Orioles third baseman Tim Beckham underwent core muscle surgery in Philadelphia on Thursday and is expected to miss the next six to seven weeks.

Beckham, 28, was originally diagnosed with a strained left groin. He sustained the injury during spring training and reaggravated it on Monday against the Indians.

Beckham was off to a slow start, batting .179/.247/.262 in 93 plate appearances. Danny Valencia and Jace Peterson should handle the hot corner while Beckham is out.
