MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Milwaukee Brewers’ first baseman Corey Hart says he hopes to get back in the lineup this weekend, when the Crew hosts the New York Mets. Hart partially tore a plantar fascia in his left foot while running the bases last weekend. He missed the entire Atlanta series, in which the Brewers swept the Braves at Miller Park. Hart is expected to get an orthotic aid for his left shoe to try and make the injured foot more comfortable. But nobody knows if it will help enough to allow Hart to play. Still, he remains optimistic about returning on Saturday or Sunday. Meanwhile, left fielder Ryan Braun continues to play through a strained right wrist that he’s had for some time. Braun went hitless in the first two games of the Atlanta series this week, but he went 2 for 5 in Wednesday night’s finale. Manager Ron Roenicke says Braun is nowhere near 100-percent, but the reigning National League M-V-P shakes off that kind of talk. Braun says everything has something wrong this time of year and that you just deal with it. They’ve won 18 of their last 23 games to get back into the playoff chase. They’re now just three games behind Saint Louis for the second Wild Card spot in the National League. Game one of the weekend series against the Mets is Friday night.
