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.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
