Corey Hart to have surgery, is out for the season

15 Comments

Well this makes a bad season in Milwaukee even worse:

“RR” is Brewers manager Ron Roenicke.

The right knee is what had him out until now. The left knee, it seems, was injured due to overcompensating for the right.  What a diaster.

Either way, that means all of 2013 is down the drain for Hart. A guy who Milwaukee needed badly given how awful their first base production has been this year.

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
