Brewers to 'probably make an offer' to Corey Hart

CREATED Dec. 5, 2013

Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said Thursday night that he's getting close to committing to making an offer to free agent first baseman Corey Hart, but has to check more on his medical situation.

"At some point, we will probably make an offer," said Melvin on 620WTMJ's "Sports Central." 

"Corey is still in the mix for first basemen."

The hesitancy comes from Hart missing all of the 2013 season with a pair of knee injuries.

"We hope to have (answers) in the next few days, probably.  We're still somewhat going over the medical.  (Doctors) gave him clearance to perform in baseball drills," said Melvin, trying to differentiate drills from being healthy enough for game action.

"It's something we have to be really sure about...we don't want to get in a siutation like last year."
