Hart had yet to appear in a game for the Brewers this season while he was rehabbing a right knee injury that put him on the disabled list since the beginning of Spring Training. According to a CBS Sports report, Hart allegedly hurt his left hamstring while "overcompensating" during his rehab for his right knee. Hart, 31, is eligible to be a free-agent at the end of the season.
Hart hit 30 home runs with a .270 average last season for the Brewers.
