Brewers-Braves deal would have hurdles
Inconsistent Hart, Lowe both making plenty of money
MILWAUKEE -- FoxSports.com says the Brewers and Braves have discussed a Corey Hart-for-Derek Lowe swap. But the Braves aren't believed to have much interest in Hart, and it remains to be seen whether the Brewers likely have concerns about Lowe's bulky contract.
Any deal involving Hart would also leave the Brewers without a starting right fielder. The team has control of Jody Gerut, who came on in the final weeks of the 2009 season and is arbitration eligible, but few options behind him. The only other outfielders on the 40-man roster are left fielder Ryan Braun, center fielder Carlos Gomez and prospect Lorenzo Cain, who was hampered by a knee injury through most of 2009.
