Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is out of the lineup Sunday with a strained oblique and could be out for a while. He initially injured himself Thursday and attempted to come back Saturday, only to reaggravate the injury. He will have an MRI and is expected to be placed on the disabled list Monday with Cesar Izturis and Robert Andino taking over duties at short. Meanwhile, the O's reportedly fear Hardy is lost for the next six weeks. (MLB.com via Twitter )

Hardy, 28, has had trouble staying healthy for the past three seasons after hitting 50 home runs combined in 2007 and 2008. He is hitting .214 with a .313 on-base percentage thus far in 2011.

And back here in Minnesota they are still screaming "why did they trade Hardy?"..this is why...the guy can not stay healthy...can anyone tell me why? These guys (professional athletes) are paid a lot of money and they are expected to stay in condition year around to earn that money...and I do understand that all athletes are subject to injuries...but then there are guys like Hardy who are hurt and on the IR two..three times a year..Is he just a wimp?...does he not take proper care of himself physically?...  I like the guy but really what is up with his constantly being injured????

Tough break for the Os. But i like Andino so yet again a chance for another young player to get a chance. I like what i saw from him in the grapefruit games. Could be a nice surprise.

JJ Hardy to the DL?  Who woulda thunk it?  If this guy could ever be healthy, he could be pretty good....
