Orioles | J.J. Hardy heads to rehab stint

Sun, 03 May 2015 14:53:44 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will join Double-A Bowie for a rehab assignment on Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is close to returning to the Orioles, but keep an eye on how he does back in the big leagues before you put him into your daily league.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy injury update

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:34:41 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) worked out and took batting practice Friday, May 1. Manager Buck Showalter is optimistic Hardy could begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to monitor Hardy's ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) progress. He'll return to everyday-shortstop duty once he rejoins the O's, however, his best days are likely behind him. He has proven to have nice pop for a middle infielder in the past, but Hardy fell to just nine home runs last season after topping 20 in each of the previous three years. Keep your expectations in check for the 32-year-old, and he may have a slow start upon his return, too.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy feeling better

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 10:29:18 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will test his left shoulder Wednesday, April 29, and he plans to travel with the team while continuing his rehab. He could play in minor league games shortly after having a cortisone injection over the weekend. Hardy said he's been feeling much better.

Fantasy Tip: The Orioles surely aren't rushing Hardy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) back to make his season debut. He will immediately return to the starting shortstop duties when he's healthy, pushing Everth Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) to second base with Jonathan Schoop out. Cabrera maintains fantasy value in deep mixed leagues and AL-only leagues until Schoop is back.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy still not pain-free

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:38:16 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will not begin a rehab assignment until he is pain-free for a few days, according to manager Buck Showalter. The organization is hopeful Hardy can begin a rehab assignment next week.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy is likely still two weeks away from fantasy contributions in a best-case scenario. He has shown nice pop for a shortstop in the past, but fell to just nine home runs last season after topping 20 in each of the previous three years. Plus, at 32, Hardy's best offensive years are likely in the rear-view mirror. He is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues, but expectations should be kept in check. Take a wait-and-see approach with Hardy in FantasyScore contests.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy not ready for rehab assignment

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 11:29:32 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) is working out at Triple-A Norfolk, but he's not ready to start a rehab assignment. He's expected to take batting practice and field ground balls Tuesday, April 21. He won't be cleared for rehab games until he can get full extension on his swing without pain in his left shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy's ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is coming along slow, and he's unlikely to be back with the O's until at least sometime next week. In the meantime, Everth Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a decent FantasyScore asset at a cheap price for his stolen base abilities.

Orioles | Rehab assignment close for J.J. Hardy

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:41:06 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) took batting practice Friday, April 17, and his shoulder felt good during infield drills. Hardy could start a rehab assignment next week.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) could be back in Baltimore to make his season debut sometime late next week. Everth Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has seen the most playing time at shortstop in Hardy's absence, and he can be a sneaky FantasyScore option in the right matchups because of his speed.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy not ready for rehab assignment

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:30:13 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) took a day off from batting practice Thursday, April 16. He will resume batting practice and workouts Friday, April 17, but is not ready for a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy is likely still approximately two weeks away from rejoining the Orioles. FantasyScore owners should take a wait-and-see approach with Hardy. It would be wise to give him a few games to readjust to major league pitching before utilizing him in contests. Everth Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has been playing shortstop and recently hitting atop the Orioles' lineup, but returning limited results. Cabrera is nothing but a low-priced flier for daily contests.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy takes batting practice

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:21:46 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) participated in batting practice Wednesday, April 15. Hardy could begin a rehab assignment later in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) likely will have to play in a few rehab games before he will be able to return to the team. Everth Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has been starting at shortstop and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy progressing

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:30:20 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) is scheduled to play with Double-A Bowie during the Orioles' current road trip, and he took soft toss Monday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: It may be another week or so before Hardy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) returns to Baltimore's lineup for his season debut. In the meantime, Everth Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) isn't a bad FantasyScore consideration at shortstop, mainly for his stolen base potential.
