MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee next week and will be out for the next three to four months.

The team said Dr. William Raasch will perform the surgery Tuesday in Milwaukee.

The 30-year-old Hart batted .270 with 30 home runs and 83 RBIs in 149 games last season. He made 97 starts at first base and 49 in right field.
