Hardy is officially listed as day-to-day right now, though he is expected to go for a precautionary MRI. The good news is that Orioles manager Buck Showalter said there is no swelling in the ankle and that Hardy feels like “nothing ever happened.”
Hardy, who signed a three-year, $22.25 million contract extension with the Orioles last month, is batting .265/.313/.495 with 19 home runs, 48 RBI and an .809 OPS over 352 plate appearances this season. Only Troy Tulowitzki has more home runs among major league shortstops.
