Hart and the Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to a $2.5 million, one-year contract. The deal, which includes $2.5 million in performance bonuses, gives the Pirates a right-handed option at first base to join left-handed slugger Pedro Alvarez, who is moving from third to first.

The 32-year-old Hart hit .203 with six home runs and 21 RBI in 68 games for the Seattle Mariners in 2014, most of them as a designated hitter, and became a free agent in October when he refused an outright assignment to the minor leagues. He missed the 2013 season due to surgeries on both knees.

The Seattle Mariners have designated outfielder Corey Hart for assignment.

Hart hit .203 with six homers and 21 RBIs in 68 games after signing an incentive-laden one-year deal in the hopes of restarting his career after missing the 2013 season following knee surgery.

Hart has been activated by the M's.

Hart was on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised right knee.

Hart was activated Friday by the M's.

Hart was out since May 18 with a strained left hamstring.

Hart went 0 for 4 on Thursday night.

Hart is falling apart. He's in a 1-for-16 slump and batting .175 in ABs after a 0-1 count. Strike one on the first pitch may as well be three strikes for Hart.

Hart recorded his second straight two-hit game Thursday against Texas, including his fourth home run of the season.

Hart is hitting a less-than-pedestrian .233, but he's also slugging .535.

Hart had two hits Tuesday.

Hart is 8 for 40 with a paltry .681 OPS.

Hart was a fantasy stud Tuesday.

Hart homered twice and drove in four runs to bust out of a 3-for-18 slide.
