Corey Hart 1B/RF.. SEA 19 Days

Hart declined his outright assignment from the Mariners and will become a free agent, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

The club designated Hart for assignment last week after activating Jesus Montero from the suspended list. As expected, Hart declined the assignment and will hit free agency this offseason. The 32-year-old Hart played in only 68 games this season, battling hamstring and knee injuries for much of the year.

Hart was designated for assignment Monday, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

With Seattle needing to clear room on the 40-man after activating Jesus Montero from the suspended list, Hart, a pending free agent, was designated for assignment. He'll be subject to waivers this offseason.

Hart went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in his return to the lineup Wednesday.

While Hart was activated from the 15-day DL when rosters expanded Monday, Wednesday marked his first game action since that time. The home run was Hart's sixth of the year, and it stood as the game-winner against Oakland starter Jon Lester.

Hart (knee) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday.

Hart will give the Mariners another option at first base and at the designated hitter spot for the remainder of the season. While he likely won't see everyday work like he did at the beginning of the season, it wouldn't be surprising if he saw a good chunk of playing time.

Hart (knee) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, going 0-for-3 at the plate.

Hart will require at least a couple more games with Tacoma, after he missed the previous three weeks of action due to a bruised right knee. The Mariners figure to bring him back from the DL when rosters expand in September, but since he's only on a one-year contract and batting .203/.278/.314 on the season, don't expect the Mariners to give him regular at-bats.

Corey Hart went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly in his return from the disabled list Friday.

Hart's ninth inning sac fly was the M's only offense of the night against Chris Sale. The 32-year-old missed six weeks with a hamstring strain, but the Mariners are hoping he can add some pop to what is a predominantly left-handed lineup.

Mariners activated 1B/OF Corey Hart from the 15-day disabled list.

Corey Hart (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.

He should only need a handful of rehab games, putting him in line for a return sometime next week. Hart, who has missed the last month with a strained left hamstring, was batting just .209 with a .647 OPS before going down with the injury.

Corey Hart (hamstring) will take batting practice for the first time on Friday since straining his hamstring on May 19.

He'll progress to doing some light running on the field on Saturday, as he continues to work his way back towards a return to the Mariners lineup. If all goes well, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment in a week or so, and be looking at a return to the lineup in late-June.
