News: Hardy did not play Tuesday against the Blue Jays because of a hamstring injury. Impact: Manager Buck Showalter said that he probably could have played Hardy on Tuesday, but he wanted to play it safe with his shortstop's hamstring, despite noticed improvements to his health over the past 24 hours. He was supposedly available off the bench, but Showalter never needed a pinch hitter. It's quite possible we could see Hardy back in the lineup Wednesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Hardy (hamstring) expects to miss Monday's game against the Red Sox, MASN Sports reports. Impact: Hardy has been banged up in the first month of the season, first dealing with back spasms and now the hamstring issue. The Orioles play an 11:05 a.m. game as part of the Patriots' Day tradition Monday. The quick turnaround after playing Sunday night means it is no surprise Hardy will take a seat on the bench. The question now is whether he will be ready to return Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

He's sitting for the fifth time in the last six games, but the 31-year-old has been encouraged by his recent progress, so perhaps he'll be a go after Thursday's off day.(RotoWire, )
