Orioles' J.J. Hardy likely to miss Opening Day with shoulder injury
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/30/15) The Orioles are not expected to have shortstop J.J. Hardy for Opening Day next week due to his shoulder injury, according to MASNsports.com.
Hardy received an enhanced MRI on Monday, which revealed his shoulder's inflammation will need more time to recover. He has been diagnosed with a subscapularis strain. Orioles manager Buck Showalter was previously hopeful that Hardy could return to the lineup by Friday.
Now it's possible that Hardy could begin the season on the disabled list. Results of an arthrogram place an estimated return date for April 11. He will not be able to participate in baseball activities for 10 days.
"It's nothing serious," Showalter said, via MLB.com. "It could be a DL, but nothing that will reach into May. What they expected to find there, they found. It was just a matter of how long they thought it would be prudent to wait to clear it all the way up.
"That's some pretty good news, all things considered. We're still optimistic. What would be un-optimistic would be something that required surgery or was longer than the time frame we're thinking."
Orioles hoping SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) returns by Friday

|(3/30/15) Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday that he'd like to see shortstop J.J. Hardy (shoulder) back in the lineup no later than Friday, MLB.com reports.
"Friday at the latest," Showalter said. "Figure a couple days to quiet down from this, Thursday being a work day and then Friday. He could play two games. Let's just get the report first, [but two games is] enough. He'll get a game or two under his belt. He was having as good a spring as you could possibly have."
Hardy is awating the results of Monday's enhanced MRI. He injured his shoulder diving for a ground ball Friday.
Orioles' J.J. Hardy headed for MRA, aiming to stay off DL

|(3/30/15) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is scheduled to undergo an MRA (magnetic resonance angiogram) on his left shoulder Monday, per MLB.com.
An MRA is a type of MRI scan that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of blood vessels inside the body, according to WebMD.com.
“I feel much better today than I did yesterday and I felt much better yesterday than I did the day before,” said Hardy, who suffered the injury while diving for a baseball in Friday’s spring game.
Hardy is optimistic his latest injury won't require a trip to the disabled list.
“At this point, the way I feel, the way that it improved over the last few days, yeah, I feel pretty good about it,” he said.

Orioles SS J.J. Hardy could sit out the weekend with sore shoulder
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/28/15) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is expected to rest on Saturday because of a sore shoulder. He suffered the injury during a second-inning collision with second baseman Jonathan Schoop on Friday. Hardy took an anti-inflammatory pill to relieve the soreness in his non-throwing shoulder, and is scheduled for an MRA exam on Monday, per the Baltimore Sun and MASN Sports.
"It's my first anti-inflammatory pill I've taken all spring. I was trying to make it all the way through spring," Hardy said. "I don't know what it's going to be like."
Hardy is hitting .233 (7 for 30) this spring.
"I think everyone kind of anticipated it being more sore today than yesterday so I don't know. I don't know what their plan is," Hardy said. "I don't think I'm going to do much today. We'll probably just treat it as much as we can and go from there and see what the next step is."
|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.
