MLB Free Agency: Corey Hart signs one-year deal with Mariners

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Former Brewer first baseman-right fielder Corey Hart has signed a one-year deal with the Mariners, which could give the Mets leverage in their trade talks with Milwaukee.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, former Brewers outfielder Corey Hart has signed a one-year deal with the Mariners for an as-yet-undisclosed amount of money.

Hart, who split time between right field and first base with the Brewers in 2013, had caused Milwaukee to first express interest in the Mets' first baseman surplus, then declare themselves out of the running, then throw themselves back into the fray. Now that Brewers GM Doug Melvin can no longer count Hart among his 2014 options, Ike Davis and Lucas Duda become a bit more valuable for the Mets.

The Mets have reportedly asked the Brewers for highly regarded right-handed pitcher Tyler Thornburg and were rebuffed. Do they now have sufficient leverage to pry a top arm from Milwaukee?
