Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy (shoulder) not ready to be cleared
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy needs to have two straight days without any pain in his shoulder before he is cleared to start playing in rehab games, reports SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.
Hardy has not played this season due to a shoulder strain and he has been working out with the team's Triple-A affiliate in Norfolk.

Orioles SS J.J. Hardy to work out at Double-A on 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.
