Last week the Orioles seemed optimistic that J.J. Hardy‘s back spasms would be a minor issue, but tonight the shortstop will be out of the lineup for the sixth consecutive game.

Hardy feels good enough that he told reporters he hopes to play Saturday, but the Orioles are reaching the point where a disabled list stint makes more sense if he can’t rejoin the lineup then.

Hardy had a lot of injuries early in his career, but he played 159 games last season and 158 games in 2012. In his absence Ryan Flaherty has slid over from third base to shortstop, with Jonathan Schoop taking over at third base.

    He said that he feels good today, will take BP and ground balls and expects to start tomorrow.
