Orioles' J.J. Hardy hits go-ahead run in 8th inning vs. Mariners
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Orioles infielder J.J. Hardy has had a hard time getting his bat going since returning to the club in early May due to a shoulder injury.
Though he only recorded one hit in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Mariners, it proved to be a crucial one in the bottom of the eighth inning. Hardy hit a single to center field that scored Chris Davis from second, which would turn out to be the winning run for Baltimore.
Hardy finished the game 1 for 4, which is the same line he's had in his previous two games. He's hitting only .196/.229/.348 this season.

Orioles SS J.J. Hardy makes season debut Thursday vs. Yankees
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/7/15) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is making his season debut on Thursday against the Yankees. He is in the starting lineup, batting seventh for manager Buck Showalter. Hardy has missed the first month of the season after suffering a shoulder strain during spring training.
His return will push Everth Cabrera to a reserve role for the foreseeable future. The Orioles will be glad to have Hardy's bat and glove back in the lineup. He has five seasons of 20-plus home runs under his belt. Last season he hit .268 with just nine home runs, but he won his third consecutive Gold Glove at shortstop
Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy may join team Thursday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/6/15) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy may rejoin the team as early as Thursday from his rehab assignment, manager Buck Showalter said per the Baltimore Sun.
Hardy, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury, is scheduled to play his third rehab game Wednesday. He went 2 for 4 at the plate in his first rehab start on Monday.
|2014 summary: 2014 was The Season That Stole J.J. Hardy's Power. After three straight seasons with more than 20 homers, Hardy finished last season with only nine, and August was the only month in which Hardy hit more than two. The power outage was mysterious, as Hardy's flyball rate and average flyball distance did not fall substantially from 2013. Though his home run and RBI production suffered, Hardy still managed to hit in the .260s as he typically does.
Playing time status: Hardy didn't go on the disabled list in 2014, but he did miss a week on two separate occasions with back issues. Though he has had a checkered health history throughout his career, Hardy did enter 2014 having missed seven games over the previous two seasons. He has largely put his playing time issues behind him.
2015 outlook: Hardy could easily put up a 20-homer season for the Orioles -- or at least something close to it -- and that potential makes him worth owning in standard mixed Rotisserie leagues. A lack of walks and doubles power makes Hardy a less enticing proposition in points leagues, even as part of a weak pool of shortstops. Then again, given the alternatives available at the position, Hardy can be targeted as a late-rounder, even in those formats.
