J. J. Hardy SS BAL 9 Days

J.J. Hardy went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI in Tuesday's meeting with the Angels.

He now has 21 doubles on the season, to go with 30 RBI and a slash line of .284/.316/.380 His power outage through the first three months of the season has been well documented. If you're looking to buy low on an infielder, Hardy is a possible candidate, though at this point it's hard to trust him. July has been a rough month for the shortstop, as he's scuffled to the tune of .220/.281/.356.

J.J. Hardy hit a go-ahead RBI single in the 12th inning as the Orioles outlasted the Red Sox 7-6 on Sunday.

The run batted in was Hardy's third RBI on the day, as he also had a two-run single in the seventh inning. The three-RBI day matched his RBI total for the previous 13 games, as he's got just 25 in what's been a down year, power-wise. Still, he's hitting .290 in a small attempt to redeem some fantasy value.

J.J. Hardy went 2-for-3 with his second homer of the year and a walk Monday versus the Rangers.

After going over 2 1/2 months without one, Hardy has managed a couple of homers in his last 10 games. The bombs should keep coming, but odds are that his .294 average will continue to drift closer to his career .262 mark.

J.J. Hardy went 2-for-4 with two runs and three RBI in a win over the Yankees on Sunday.

Hardy came up with the bases loaded in the eighth inning and cleared the bases with a double, his 17th double of the season. It's been a strange year for the shortstop, who is batting .295 but only recently hit his first home run of the year. That powerless trend shouldn't continue, and if he can keep his average up he should provide nice value in the season's second half.
