The Brewers revealed Sunday that outfielder Corey Hart needs arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and could miss the start of the regular season.

This according to beat writer Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (via Twitter).

Hart will be in recovery mode from the minor procedure for 3-4 weeks, meaning he is likely to miss the entire Cactus League schedule. Without sufficient warm-up at-bats, the Brewers will probably place him on the 15-day disabled list before Opening Day and leave him behind at their spring training complex in Phoenix, Arizona to get tuned up. He shouldn’t be sidelined beyond mid-April.

Hart, 29, batted .285/.356/.510 with 26 home runs and 63 RBI in 130 games last season for Milwaukee.

According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.

Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).

Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
