Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart was hoping to be activated in time to start Tuesday, but a setback to the recovery of his foot injury has "cast serious doubt" on the possibility of his return, reports Adam McCalvy of MLB.com:

"I’m definitely aiming for Tuesday, I just wish it would have felt better today than it did," Hart said. "It’s a little frustrating. Today was the first day I tried to run the bases, and it didn’t go as planned."

Hart has been out since September 10 while dealing with a partial tear of the plantar fascia, which McCalvy describes as "the connective tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot."

Hart didn’t experience any problems while running in straight lines, but the discomfort took place when he "ran along the arc along the outer edge of the infield dirt."

Prior to his injury, Hart has hit .278/.340/.514 with thirty-five doubles and twenty-seven home runs for the Brewers.
