Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) cannot participate in baseball activities for at least 10 days, due to his subscapularis strain.
Fantasy Tip: With Hardy on the shelf, and likely to start the season on the 15-day disabled list, it is Everth Cabrera ($3,000; 6.0% of cap) who is likely to see a majority of the starts in the early going of the regular season.

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) has a strained subscapularis and will start the season on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore contests early in the season, and Everth Cabrera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) stands to see the majority of starts in Hardy's absence. When in the starting lineup, Cabrera is a nice low-priced flier at a weak position for FantasyScore players. Hardy should be avoided until he returns and proves his health.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will undergo an MRA exam on his left shoulder Monday, March 30. The procedure will involve injecting dye into the shoulder to determine if he has sustained a new injury. In a best-case scenario, Hardy would not be able to resume playing before Tuesday, March 31.
Fantasy Tip: This injury could put Hardy's ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) availability for Opening Day in jeopardy. If he is sidelined for an extended period of time, SS Everth Cabrera could see playing time at the position, according to manager Buck Showalter.

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) said his shoulder is sore after colliding with 2B Jonathan Schoop during a spring training game Friday, March 27. He said he is not sure if he will need more tests on his shoulder or if he will play in one of the split-squad games Sunday, March 29.
Fantasy Tip: Hardy's ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) status for opening day could be in question if the soreness lingers for a few more days. Owners on FantasyScore may want to avoid using him until he receives a clean bill of health.
