|(10/9/14) Shortstop J.J. Hardy has agreed to a contract extension with the Orioles for around $40 million for three years, a source told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Hardy was headed for free agency in the offseason.
Hardy hit .268 with a .372 slugging percentage, .682 OPS, nine home runs, 28 doubles and 52 RBI in 141 games this season for Baltimore. It was the first time in four seasons he had less than 20 home runs and the second time in his career he struck out (104) more than 100 times.

J.J. Hardy ready to roll Friday for Orioles
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/12/14) On the same day the Orioles lost first baseman Chris Davis to suspension, they welcomed shortstop J.J. Hardy back from a back injury. He is set to start in Game 1 of their Friday doubleheader against the Yankees.
Hardy had been out for a week. He returns with just nine home runs after slugging at least 22 in each of the last three years. But he does own a respectable .281/.320/.392 stat line.
J.J. Hardy's MRI comes back clean; aiming for Friday
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/9/14) The MRI taken on Orioles infielder J.J. Hardy's back came back negative, manager Buck Showalter told reporters Tuesday.
Hardy's MRI showed no damage, but he did receive a cortisone injection in his lower back. Showalter expects Hardy to possibly be available beginning Friday against the Yankees. He has not played since last Friday.
|J.J. Hardy has a career .260 batting average, and has played in at least 158 games each of the last two seasons, after never having accomplished that feat in any of his first seven. A two-time All-Star, Hardy has three straight seasons with 25 or more doubles, and has hit more home runs than any American League shortstop over the last three years; he has three straight seasons with at least 22 home runs. There's legitimate power here, although his average has fluctuated in recent seasons -- three between .263 and .269, and one each of .229 and .238. You may be hard-pressed to find a shortstop with more guaranteed power going in the later rounds of drafts, especially one who seems to have moved past his spotty injury history. Hardy's lack of walks hurts his value a bit in Head-to-Head leagues, but he can be taken in the middle rounds of most Fantasy formats.
