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.

The Orioles plan on opening contract talks with shortstop J.J. Hardy this season, and it would be a move that makes a lot of sense for the organization. The Orioles need someone to keep the position warm until top prospect Manny Machado is ready for prime time, and when healthy, Hardy has proved to be capable. Since returning the lineup in mid May from one of those pesky oblique injuries, Hardy has batted .298 with six home runs and 17 runs batted in. Needless to say, that’s a major offensive upgrade over Cesar Izturis.

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.
