Orioles | J.J. Hardy activated from disabled list

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 11:55:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. He had been sidelined due to a hairline fracture in his left foot since May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy was batting .244 with two home runs and eight RBI in 22 games prior to landing on the DL. Daily fantasy players should wait a game or two before relying on him again so that he can demonstrate that he is completely healthy.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy returning this weekend

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 15:27:00 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) will be activated from the disabled list Saturday, June 18, or Sunday, June 19, according to manager Buck Showalter.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy has missed approximately a month and a half, so expect there to be some rust to shake off, but there still isn't much to be excited about. He's posted an underwhelming .247/.285/.351 slash line with just 19 home runs through 1,092 plate appearances dating back to the beginning of the 2014 season, after all. Leave Hardy to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy experiencing some discomfort

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 18:35:24 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) is experiencing some discomfort in the muscles surrounding the ankle of his fractured left foot but not in the bone itself.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy is currently on a rehab assignment with Class AA Bowie and could return Friday, June 17, in a best-case scenario. His numbers weren't impressive before he got injured and daily fantasy players will want to avoid using him in his first few games after he is activated from the disabled list. That being said, he remains worthy of stashing in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy could return Friday

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:17:27 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) could return Friday, June 17, at the earliest, according to manager Buck Showalter.

Fantasy Tip: It's about time, as Hardy has been out since the very beginning of May due to a fractured left foot. Even when he's back in the lineup, owners might want to give him some time to get back into the swing of things, as he's produced just a measly .244/.291/.410 line thus far. His return will obliterate any value held by Ryan Flaherty.

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 19:11:30 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) is playing shortstop in his minor-league rehab game with Class AA Bowie. Manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday, June 14, that he wants to see how Hardy responds to "game speed" after working out at the team's minor-league facility in Florida.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy has been sidelined for six weeks due to his foot injury. He is nearing a return to the starting lineup, but he is best left to fantasy owners in AL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats after playing a few games to knock off the rust.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy is likely out until at least after the All-Star break, so fantasy owners in AL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats should hang tight. Wait to see him officially play in a game or two before trusting him in the active lineup again.
