Orioles SS J.J. Hardy disappointed he will begin year on DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy expressed his disappointment Tuesday on having to open the start of the season on the disabled list. Hardy was diagnosed with a strained muscle in his left shoulder after undergoing an MRI.

"I think they found exactly what they thought it was," Hardy said, per MASNsports.com. "I didn't know it was going to take 10 days or whatever they're saying to get all the swelling out and get the strength back, so that's a little disappointing, but I guess it could have been a lot worse.

"I feel better today than I did yesterday. At this rate, who knows how long it's going to be? I'm getting better quick, so I have no idea."

Hardy cannot participate in baseball activities for at least 10 days.

"I don't know how they can make these timetables," he said. "I feel better. That's kind of what I'm going off of, so if I'm feeling better, then who knows how long it will be?

"I'm getting range of motion back. I think there's still swelling in there and I think that's what we need to get rid of, and then once the swelling is gone, we can start strengthen it and go from there.

"I don't think it will be full inactivity. I think I'll be able to move around and do stuff, and then it'll just be a matter of swinging the bat full speed."


Orioles' J.J. Hardy likely to miss Opening Day with shoulder injury


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) The Orioles are not expected to have shortstop J.J. Hardy for Opening Day next week due to his shoulder injury, according to MASNsports.com. 

Hardy received an enhanced MRI on Monday, which revealed his shoulder's inflammation will need more time to recover. He has been diagnosed with a subscapularis strain. Orioles manager Buck Showalter was previously hopeful that Hardy could return to the lineup by Friday. 

Now it's possible that Hardy could begin the season on the disabled list. Results of an arthrogram place an estimated return date for April 11. He will not be able to participate in baseball activities for 10 days. 

"It's nothing serious," Showalter said, via MLB.com. "It could be a DL, but nothing that will reach into May. What they expected to find there, they found. It was just a matter of how long they thought it would be prudent to wait to clear it all the way up.

"That's some pretty good news, all things considered. We're still optimistic. What would be un-optimistic would be something that required surgery or was longer than the time frame we're thinking."

Let's just get the report first, [but two games is] enough. He'll get a game or two under his belt. He was having as good a spring as you could possibly have."

Hardy is awating the results of Monday's enhanced MRI. He injured his shoulder diving for a ground ball Friday.

"I think everyone kind of anticipated it being more sore today than yesterday so I don't know. I don't know what their plan is," Hardy said. "I don't think I'm going to do much today. We'll probably just treat it as much as we can and go from there and see what the next step is."

Orioles' Hardy reveals back injury was a major hindrance in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy revealed at the team's FanFest he played a good portion of last year with a back injury that bothered him more than he let on during the 2014 season, per MASNsports.com.

Hardy had averaged about 26 home runs per season from 2011-13 before managing just nine home runs in '14. He went a career-long 339 at-bats without a homer at one point last season before snapping the slump June 21 against the Yankees.

"It happened so early last year that it was a constant battle to get my core strong enough to where I didn't feel it," Hardy said. "Maybe two months of the year I actually felt normal. The rest of the time was a grind. But I've been able to strengthen my core pretty good this offseason with my workouts."
