News: Hardy went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's loss to the Indians. Impact: Hardy doubled in the fourth inning then plated Baltimore's only run with his single in the eighth. His thumb didn't appear to have a negative impact on his hitting after missing games Tuesday and Wednesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Hardy (thumb) is back in the lineup Friday against the Indians, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com reports. Impact: The thumb sprain cost Hardy a third straight start Wednesday, but he intimated that he was feeling much better and evidently Thursday's off day provided the necessary maintenance for him to return to the lineup. He'll draw a tough assignment in his return, Indians ace right-hander Corey Kluber.(RotoWire, )

News: Though Hardy (thumb) remained out of the lineup Wednesday, he indicated his thumb was feeling much better, MASN Sports' Roch Kubatko reports. Impact: Hardy will set his sights on a return to the lineup at some point during the club's weekend series in Cleveland. His return would be a especially important development, after Manny Machado was placed on the 15-day DL, challenging the team's depth on the left side of the infield.(RotoWire, )

News: Hardy's MRI Tuesday revealed a sprained left thumb, and he will be held out of the lineup Wednesday and Thursday, with the hope that he can return this weekend, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports. Impact: Ryan Flaherty will presumably man shortstop for the next couple days while Hardy rests up. It's been an extremely disappointing season for Hardy, who is has just six home runs in 108 games. He's typically been among the MLB leaders in homers among shortstops, but his isolated power sits at a career-low .105, compared to .170 last season when he bashed 25 long balls.(RotoWire, )

News: Hardy had an MRI performed on his left thumb Tuesday, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports. Impact: Hardy was held to the pine both Sunday and Monday following an initial diagnosis of a sprained thumb, and the severity of the injury should be confirmed in the near future. As long as he's sidelined, Ryan Flaherty will be the everyday shortstop for the Orioles.(RotoWire, )
