News: Hardy threw 2.1 scoreless innings Monday, retiring all seven batters, and continues to churn out quality innings.
Impact: He stranded the bases loaded Monday after entering with the bags full. His improved curveball has a lot to do with the improvements in his game. He's throwing it where he wants it and that's keeping opposing batters off balance. Long relievers don't have a lot of fantasy value, though, so admire his work as a fan, not an owner.

News: Hardy picked up the win with a scoreless inning of relief against the Cardinals on Saturday. He struck out two and walked one.
Impact: He's a sturdy reliever who doesn't really warrant much fantasy attention, as he just isn't used much in high-leverage situations. His K:BB ratio (9:7) is a touch queasy and his 1.40 WHIP doesn't inspire confidence.
