Next player recap is J.J. Hardy! Hardy has been a long time Oriole favorite as his big 2011-2014 seasons all set him up for who he is in Baltimore today. The orioles will be declining his $14M team option for 2018 but there’s still a chance he’ll be back in Orange. With Tim Beckham blasting into the scene that is a huge part why he could possibly not return. Hardy had one of his worst career years this season, he did miss a couple months with a broken forearm. That isn’t much of a excuse for his season though, because when he came back it seemed like he was swinging the bat batter then he was before the the injury. So if this year was Hardy’s last year at least he went out with a bang with a home run in his last game a Camden Yards in a Oriole uniform.
