It may be the oddest timing for a contract extension announcement in recent memory - on the eve of the first American League Championship Series game at Camden Yards in 17 years and just weeks away from free agency. But the Orioles took care of a major chunk of offseason business Thursday by agreeing to a three-year deal worth $40 million with shortstop J.J. Hardy. He's locked up through 2017 with a team option for 2018. “Is there ever a bad time to announce J.J. continuing as an Oriole?

NEW YORK - Shortstop J.J. Hardy reiterated after Monday's game that he would like to remain in an Orioles uniform for the rest of his career following reports out of New York that said the pending free agent would consider signing with the Yankees. Hardy has long made his desire to remain in Baltimore clear. He likes playing for manager Buck Showalter and enjoys the clubhouse chemistry that he has built. Since the Orioles acquired him in a trade with the Minnesota Twins after the 2010 season, he has been an instrumental part of the team's transformation from doormat to division champion.

Thursday's off day - which halted a span of 20 games in 20 days for the Orioles - was a needed respite for everyone on the club. But perhaps nobody appreciated it more than J.J. Hardy, who also had Wednesday off because manager Buck Showalter said his shortstop was dealing with a "barky" right shoulder. Truthfully, Hardy said Saturday, his shoulder has been screaming and howling for the past couple weeks - hurting so much that he considered receiving a cortisone shot similar to the one he had in March when the problem first arose.

J.J. Hardy was 1-for-22 for the spring heading into his second at-bat on Sunday against the Minnesota Twins. Then he turned on a 91-mph fastball from Vance Worley and sent it over the left-field wall for his first home run in Grapefruit League action. He said he wasn't worried about his poor start to the spring. But a home run doesn't hurt. “It was definitely nice to put a barrel to a ball. I wasn't really worried. We still have a few weeks left; I'll get a few more at-bats,” Hardy said.

So much has gone wrong this season for the Baltimore Orioles, it's difficult at times to say where the franchise should even begin to focus its attention as it tries to address the problems that have led to another frustrating year. But what has become clear, even as the summer turns into a long and miserable slog, is that the one position the Orioles don't need to stress over next year is shortstop. In the series opener Friday against the Detroit Tigers, J.J. Hardy made a case for why it's still worth your time to pay attention to this team, even as the losses mount.

Overshadowed by the pregame news that Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has been suspended for 25 games for violating MLB's drug policy is that shortstop J.J. Hardy, who has been nursing nagging lower back problems, is back in the starting lineup for Game 1 of today's doubleheader against the Yankees. Hardy left the club Monday in Boston and received a cortisone shot back in Baltimore. Hardy said he also received additional treatment on Thursday's off day, including a Toradol injection, and he swung at 80 percent.

Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy returned to the starting lineup for the opening game of Friday's split doubleheader, after nagging lower-back spasms had forced him to miss the previous five games. Hardy hadn't played since Friday's game in Tampa Bay, when pain in his lower back flared up and worsened throughout the game. He missed the final two games against the Rays and also sat out this week's three-game sweep in Boston when he was sent back to Baltimore to see team orthopedist Dr. Mike Jacobs.

The Orioles believe they received good news Tuesday as an MRI on shortstop J.J. Hardy's lower back showed no changes. The club believes he could return to the starting lineup as early as Friday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Hardy met with team orthopedist Dr. Michael Jacobs on Tuesday afternoon and received a cortisone shot in the sacroiliac joint in his lower back. It's similar to what Hardy underwent in April, which alleviated a much more intense pain in his back at that time.

BOSTON -- Stressing that it was more precautionary than alarming, the Orioles sent starting shortstop J.J. Hardy back to Baltimore on Monday night to see a team doctor about his balky back. Hardy missed the Orioles' final two games against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field over the weekend, and he will not return for the remainder of the road trip - marking at least a five-game absence. Even if he could play Wednesday in the series finale against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, the Orioles didn't like the idea of him having to take another round airplane trip so quickly.

Shortstop J.J. Hardy, who missed one game and part of another with lower back spasms, is back in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Cincinnati Reds at Camden Yards. Hardy is batting sixth, one spot ahead of Kelly Johnson, who will be playing third base and making his first start with the Orioles. Johnson made his club debut Tuesday as a defensive replacement at third base. David Lough, who has been hitting better in limited action recently, has been moved up to the second spot in the lineup versus Reds right-hander Dylan Axelrod.

J.J. Hardy didn't start Tuesday night, but both Hardy and Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the veteran shortstop will be back in the lineup Wednesday against the Cincinnati Reds. “I expect J.J. to start [Wednesday]. How's that?” Showalter said. “And he is available in some form [Tuesday], if the game dictates it.” Hardy left Monday afternoon's game against the Minnesota Twins before the eighth inning because of lower back spasms, something that cost him six games in April.

Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy received some scary news when the team's charter flight touched down in Chicago Sunday evening. That's when Hardy got word that a storm system that terrorized many parts of the midwestern U.S. and spawned numerous tornadoes leveled the condominium of his grandmother, Carol Shinn, in the town of Creston, Iowa on Saturday evening.  Shin was uninjured, but her home was destroyed. “I wasn't really following the weather so I didn't even know about the tornadoes going on,” Hardy said.

Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy left Monday's 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins with lower-back spasms, but he hopes to be back in the lineup for Tuesday's series opener against the Cincinnati Reds at Camden Yards. Hardy left the game before the top of the eighth inning, and Ryan Flaherty replaced him. Even though Hardy missed five games in April with lower back spasms, he said this flareup isn't nearly as bad. “It didn't lock up or anything, it just tried to spasm,” Hardy said.

The Orioles tried to give Ubaldo Jimenez some work in a pressure-free situation Sunday afternoon, allowing the struggling right-hander to work the ninth inning with a seven-run lead. But Jimenez would last just five batters after loading the bases and walking in a run. He issued three walks and allowed a double to Brian Dozier, allowing four of the five batters he faced to reach base. After he left the mound to a chorus of boos from the hometown crowd at Camden Yards, he was charged with two more runs when Tommy Hunter gave up a two-run single that suddenly created a tense situation and a save opportunity for Zach Britton.
