Blaine Hardy gave up four runs on five hits and a walk against the White Sox on Tuesday. He struck out four batters over four innings, and took his fifth loss of the season.
Hardy now sports a 3.91 ERA to go along with a 1.20 WHIP. Those aren't bad numbers for a pitcher in the American League, but not exactly what fantasy owners should be looking for in a starter.
Blaine Hardy had a forgettable night in Anaheim on Wednesday. He surrendered three home runs, and was charged with five runs on seven hits in the loss.
Before this game, Hardy had only given up six home runs all year. This was a definite step back for the 31-year-old southpaw, but he'll look to right the ship against the White Sox his next time out.
Blaine Hardy pitched well in a no-decision against Oakland on Friday. He shut out the Athletics over seven innings, allowed one hit, two walks, and struck out six batters. The Tigers went on to lose in extra innings.
The Tigers converted Hardy to a starter and he's been brilliant over the last month. Through 19 2/3 innings, he's struck out 16, and boasts a 2.75 ERA and .97 WHIP. Detroit won't win him many games, but owners looking for a streaming option or some help in other categories may want to give him a look.
Blaine Hardy allowed one run on four hits and two walks against the Indians on Saturday. He only struck out one batter, but the effort was good enough for his fourth win of the season.
Hardy made another spot start for Francisco Liriano. Hardy's 3.61 ERA is reasonable enough, but his lack of a defined role limits his fantasy value.

This was a less than ideal match up for Hardy, who now sports a 3.77 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP on the year. He is not a viable fantasy option at this point.
