Fantasy Impact:

Although Hardy has been swinging a bat, he is will not be ready to return from his June 18th wrist fracture quite yet. Showalter gave no specific timetable for his return, besides saying that he hopes it'll be "soon thereafter." The O's acquired SS Tim Beckham at the end of July and Hardy's replacement has sparked an offensive firestorm for the team in his 12 starts this August.
