Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy to hit soft toss Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is scheduled to hit soft toss Monday, but is still a couple of days from heading to his rehab assignment, reports the Baltimore Sun.
Hardy, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury, could continue to take soft toss for a few days before taking batting practice later in the week.
J.J. Hardy could get into minor-league games next week

|(4/10/15) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy took dry swings with a fungo bat on Thursday. He will graduate to his bat on Friday in hopes of getting into minor-league rehab games as early as Tuesday, according to the Baltmore Sun.
"I don't really feel it doing everyday stuff, but yesterday I felt it taking off my jacket," Hardy said, per MASN Sports. "Just little things that I'm not thinking about. I fling my arm or my coat open and I'm like, 'Ah!'
"When it first happened I couldn't (reach across to) wash my shoulder over here. So it's stuff like that where I go, 'I feel better today,' because I can wash my shoulder."
Hardy, who is on the 15-day DL with a shoulder strain, remains without a timetable for return.
|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.
