    News

    Baltimore decided to decline Hardy's $14 million club option for the 2018 season, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

    Impact

    Hardy will get a $2 million buyout from the team and becomes a free agent heading into this winter. The shortstop only played in 73 games this year due to a broken wrist that kept him out from late June to early September, and he wound up slashing just .217/.255/.323 with four home runs and 24 RBI when he was on the field. The 35-year-old will look to latch on with a new organization in the coming months, although his days as a starting shortstop may have come to an end.
