Orioles SS J.J. Hardy belts two-run home run in loss on Tuesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/7/15) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy connected on a two-run home run in the fifth inning of Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Twins. The home run was Hardy's only hit of the game, and his fifth longball of the season. It came as little consequence to the outcome of the game, as the Twins were already up 8-0 by that point.
Hardy had been hitless over his previous 14 at-bats prior to the home run, and is batting just .162 over his last 11 games.

Orioles SS J.J. Hardy drives in two runs during 8-6 win at Boston
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/25/15) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy drove in two runs during an 8-6 win Thursday against the Red Sox. Hardy drove in both runs on a double during a six-run fourth inning.
Hardy finished 2 for 5 with one run and two strikeouts. He has managed seven multihit games in June. Hardy is batting .328 (22 for 67) in his last 17 games, raising his season average from .187 to .247 in that span.
Hardy still hasn't homered in his last 35 games. His last home run came on May 15.
|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.
