Corey Hart 1B/DH SEA 2 Months

Mariners placed OF/DH Corey Hart on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19, with a left hamstring strain.

The Mariners have called up Nick Franklin in a corresponding roster move. Hart is dealing with a Grade 2 strain of his left hamstring and might not be ready when he's first eligible.

Corey Hart has been diagnosed with a strained left hamstring and will be re-evaluated on Monday.

Hart injured the hamstring while stealing second base during Sunday's game. The Mariners don't play again until Tuesday night, so any potential roster move involving Hart might not happen for a while.

Corey Hart left Sunday's game against the Twins with an apparent hamstring injury.

Hart appeared to tweak his hammy on a stolen base in the fourth inning. He immediately came off the field, not even waiting for the Mariners' trainer to check on him. The M's should update Hart's status before long.

Corey Hart is playing right field for the first time with the Mariners Thursday afternoon vs. the Rangers.

Hart missed the entire 2013 season after undergoing dual knee surgeries, so he has been limited to DH duties in his 10 starts so far with Seattle. The 32-year-old has displayed good power in the early going, boasting three home runs in 43 plate appearances.

Corey Hart blasted two home runs in Tuesday's 5-3 victory over the Angels.

Hart erased Seattle's 3-1 deficit with a two-out blast in the third inning off Hector Santiago. Hart's solo seventh inning round-tripper against Fernando Salas was a tattooed line drive right down broadway and over Mike Trout's head in center. The 6-foot-6, 230-pounder has been all-or-nothing at the dish so far this season, bopping three homers and two singles over 22 at-bats for a .227 average and .636 slugging percentage.

Corey Hart (forearm, back) is scheduled to play in the Mariners' final spring training game on Saturday.

Hart responded well to playing in minor league games Wednesday and Thursday and will play in another one Friday. The fact that he's in line to play a big league game Saturday should rule out any chances that he might need a disabled list stint. That's provided that he doesn't have a setback, of course.

Corey Hart (forearm, back) is scheduled to play in minor league games on Wednesday and Thursday.

Hart is hoping to be over his back tightness and forearm tenderness by the start of the regular season, but he might be ticketed for the 15-day disabled list no matter what. The 32-year-old missed the entire 2013 season and is 5-for-35 (.143) with 18 strikeouts this spring in the Cactus League. The Mariners want to use him as their primary DH and part-time corner outfielder this season.
