Seattle Mariners OF Corey Hart had no problems in right field when he got the not there Thursday, April 17. He added a sliding catch on his surgically-repaired knees during the game. "I was a little apprehensive in spring when I was out there," he said, "because I didn't know what would happen if I slid. As time's gone on, the knees haven't been a problem. They've gotten stronger. However, manager Lloyd McClendon said Hart is unlikely to play the outfield this weekend in a National League park, but he could see time at first base.
Fantasy Tip: It's a good start for Hart, but that doesn't mean he'll see consistent time in right field immediately. Designated hitter is still the best avenue for him to accrue at-bats in Seattle.

Seattle Mariners OF Corey Hart convinced manager Lloyd McClendon that he's healthy enough to play right field Thursday, April 17. "He told he's feeling good," McClendon said. "That his knees are fine. Hey, listen, I've got to go with my player. He says he's feeling pretty good. But we'll watch him. We'll keep an eye on him." McClendon said Hart may see time at first base in the team's upcoming interleague series in a National League park without the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Don't expect this to become a regular thing for Hart. Michael Saunders, Stefen Romero and now Nick Franklin can also fill in in right field. Hart's unpredictable playing time make him hard to own in standard mixed leagues.

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said OF Corey Hart won't be playing the outfield anytime soon.

Seattle Mariners OF Corey Hart had the day off again Sunday, April 6, as the team looks to keep him fresh early in the season. He'll have had two days off heading into the game Tuesday, April 8.
Fantasy Tip: With all the options the Mariners have for the outfield and designated hitter spots, it's tough for Hart to find consistent playing time while the team attempts to take it easy on him. For that reason, it's tough to keep him in your lineup consistently unless you're in a very deep mixed or AL-only league.
