Sox Have 'Checked In' With Corey Hart For 1B

(Mark Hoffman)
Corey Hart stated on MLB Network Radio that the Red Sox are among the teams who have "checked in" with his agent. The other teams mentioned by Hart were the Colorado Rockies, the Tampa Bay Rays and the Milwaukee Brewers. Hart would be an interesting choice for Boston—and likely considerably cheaper than signing Mike Napoli to a multi-year pact. The 31-year old Hart clouted 30 HRs for the Brew Crew in 2012 while hitting .270 in 149 games. He's a lifetime .276 hitter with a career OPS of .824. He had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last January.
