MIAMI — Right-hander Kevin Hart, who’s on the 60-day disabled list recovering from shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum, worked out this afternoon with the Pirates at Sun Life Stadium.
“In talking with Neal (Huntington, general manager), they want our staff to see him now,” manager Clint Hurdle said. “Everybody else has looked at him down in Pirate City (in Bradenton, Fla.). It was a close ride (to Miami), so it made sense.”
Pitching coach Ray Searage and bullpen coach Euclides Rojas will evaluate Hart’s progress. Also, minor league pitching coordinator Jim Benedict, who’s been working closely with Hart in Brandenton, is in the house to pass along updates.
»»» Right-hander Casey Sadler, a 25th-round draft pick last year, was added to the roster at Low-A West Virginia. Zac Fuesser was sent down to short-season State College. Fuesser did not allow a run in two outings, including a four-inning spot start, with West Virginia.
