Corey Hart: “I’d Definitely Take A Discount”

Posted By Matt Stein On September 19, 2013 @ 2:15 PM In MLB,News and Rumors | No Comments

After missing the entire season following multiple knee surgeries impending free agent Corey Hart said today that he’ll take less money to re-sign with the Brewers.

“I told them I would be very generous to stay here. I wouldn’t sit there and ask for anything outlandish. I’d definitely take a discount to stay here because I think I owe it to them to stay here and be a cheaper player,” Hart said. “Nobody wants to play for free but I basically sat there and watched all season. I owe it to them and the fans to come back at a cheaper price.”

We’ll see what happens once other offers start coming in and Hart has to actually make a decision on where to sign, but that’s certainly a public stance you don’t often hear from players. During the previous three seasons Hart hit .280 with an .857 OPS and an average of 29 homers, so even with the health question marks he’ll be one of the best hitters available and is still relatively young at age 31.
