Milwaukee Brewers' Corey Hart left Sunday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals in the fifth inning after injuring himself on the base paths. Trainers originally thought it was a left ankle injury, but Hart said on Monday that it is actually the bottom of his foot.
"It was a weird feeling. It's not my ankle. It's around the arch area. I've have broken ankles and sprained ankles and stuff. This felt like it was burning. I kept trying to go, but it was one of those things that got worse," said Hart.
Hart sat out Monday's game and the team is unsure how many more games he will miss. Hart met with team physician William Raasch before Monday's game against Atlanta and the diagnosis was an injury to his plantar fascia.
"It's pretty much day to day with him," said manager Ron Roenicke after the Brewers' 4-1 win. "Hopefully it's not going to be a while. It's more the plantar fascia, because it's so far down and under in the foot. He said he didn't turn it. Just the planting and trying to get back, I don't know what it does to that. It strains it somehow."
There are just 21 games left in the season, and the more time Hart misses, the less chance the Brewers have for the playoffs.
"Hopefully it's nothing. Best case, they give me a shot in the foot and I can play a couple days later," said Hart.
