Hardy hit his fourth homer of the year Wednesday against Texas. The two-run shot represented his only hit in four at-bats.

Between injury and ineffectiveness, this season has been a struggle for Hardy -- his worst campaign in the majors, even worse than his disastrous season with Minnesota in 2010. Never a high-OBP hitter, he's seen that stat crater at .280, while his power has been flaky at best. He does have a pair of homers over the last six games, but with the way Hardy's scuffled, it's much too early to call this a power surge.

Hardy (oblique) is back in the lineup hitting eighth Friday against the Indians.

This was anticipated Thursday when he was available off the bench but not in the lineup. The Orioles seem to have dodged a scare here with Hardy, as he will not end up missing much time with the oblique injury. The O's may still opt to give him a day off here and there in the short term, but Hardy's owners can expect to see him in the lineup more often than not going forward.
