Mariners | Corey Hart feeling positive

Seattle Mariners OF Corey Hart (knees) has ramped up his activities to running the bases, and he's feeling much better about his surgically repaired knees. "I haven't gotten on the field yet to do fly balls, but I've been doing simulated ground balls to work on my footwork and agility. It's been progressing. I've been able to do everything. It's been nice."

The M's are hoping to put Hart in the outfield for a significant amount of time this year, and they're willing to wait to see if he can handle the workload. General manager Jack Zduriencik and manager Lloyd McClendon have talked of a three-man rotation between Hart and 1Bs Logan Morrison and Justin Smoak between first base and designated hitter. Hart isn't worried about regaining his timing at the plate, just how his knees will hold up.
