|(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.
Hardy is a career .261 hitter with a .422 slugging percentage, .734 OPS, 167 home runs and 579 RBI in 1,259 regular season games. He is a two-time All-Star and won AL Gold Gloves in 2012 and 2013.

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.
|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.
