Fantasy Impact: Hardy has struggled this season to be a consistent threat at the plate. Hardy who made his season debut on May 7th, has had a hard time after rehabbing a shoulder injury that he suffered in spring training. His defense though hasn't suffered, Hardy is still the gold glove caliber shortstop that he's always been. He is starting to look more and ore comfortable every time he is up. If hardy can find his swing, and round out his game he will a hot free agent pick up. For right now he would be a great defensive depth guy, that can provide some offense but doesn't on a regular basis.

Fantasy Impact: While JJ Hardy is on the DL, look for Ryan Flaherty or Everth Cabrera to take most of his playing time. His injury doesn't seem like it will put him out for too long.
