The Orioles' Monday night 8-1 loss to the Rangers featured very little offense for the home club. One bright spot however was J.J Hardy's ability to reach base three times. Hardy finished with one single and two walks in four at bats and raised his average to a season high .249.

Fantasy Impact: Hardy's overall numbers won't blow anyone away but his recent stats paint a different picture. Over his last 15 games, Hardy has a batting average of .321 and an OBP of .350. In that span Hardy has had one home run, eight RBIs, and 10 runs scored. Hardy's ability to get on base like he did Monday night makes him a sneaky good fantasy pickup for future weeks.

On Fridays, the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Cleveland Indians 4-3. In the game J.J. Hardy went 1-3 with a two run home run, which gave hime two RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Hardy has been pretty good over these last few games, he has one home run and seven RBI in his last ten games. This season Hardy is hitting .248, with three home run, 18 RBI, and he also has a .599 OPS. Hardy has been getting better over his last ten he is hitting .341 in his last 41 at bats. This is a good sign for Hardy who struggled early on this season being a consistent threat at the plate. For now Hardy will bring good depth to a bench where you can play the match-ups that will favor him. If Hardy can pick it up and become more of an offensive presence he could become a solid second basemen that could any team. It'll be interesting to see if Hardy will become a consistent threat over the course of the season.

JJ Hardy with two RBI Sunday

Mon, Jun 22nd 1:01am EDT
By Jamie Mellor

Hardy went 2-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Right now, he is merely a deep league or MI-slot league player. If he regains his old power, then he will move up to consideration for more selective leagues.

JJ Hardy with a RBI Monday

Tue, Jun 16th 1:11am EDT
By Jamie Mellor

Hardy went 1-for-3 with a RBI Monday in the 4-0 victory. Hardy now has a hit in 9 of the past 10 games he has played in. During this stretch, he has four runs scored and five RBI.

Fantasy Impact: He is playing better and there will be leagues where he should be owned due to the nature of the fantasy shortstop position. Be advised that it is still a long shot that he will return to his former glory.

On Wednesday, the Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 5-2. in the Game J.J. Hardy had a double, and a single, while striking out once. In the game Hardy also had a season high two RBI game.

Fantasy Impact: Hardy has tried to turn it around this season, after a slow start and some injuries derailed him early. This season Hardy is hitting .204, with two home runs, and six RBI. Hardy has struggled this season after some injuries slowed his season, and has made it very hard on him to be consistent. But this game could be a prelude for things to come. Hardy has been a consistent defensive asset to the Orioles this season, but it is his plate production has really struggled to pick up. As of right now I would steer clear of Hardy because he is a struggling bat at the plate. If he can pick-up his plate presence then he could be a very good player that could be used as depth guy on a bench.

Hardy has been getting better from game to game and will look to keep this up in the games to come. Right now Hardy would be a good back end of the line up guy, but look for him to turn it on as the season progresses.

J.J. Hardy plays hero

J.J. Hardy singled in the eighth inning, leading to the winning run crossing the plate for the Orioles. Hardy this season has two home runs, and four RBI. He is also hitting just .190 in 42 plate appearances this season. (Source: Baltimore Orioles Official Twitter)

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.
