Twins' Blaine Hardy: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy underwent Tommy John surgery last week, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports.

Hardy dealt with elbow issues last season and received platelet-rich plasma injection in August. That procedure evidently didn't have the desired results, so he elected to go under the knife. He likely won't be back in game action until the middle of the 2021 campaign.

Twins' Blaine Hardy: Healthy in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) threw a scoreless inning with a strikeout in Friday's exhibition game against the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers.

Hardy received a platelet-rich plasma injection to his left elbow in mid-August and missed the final two months of last season. It looks like he's fully healthy as spring training begins. The non-roster invitee to camp faces an uphill battle to win a spot in Minnesota's bullpen.

Twins' Blaine Hardy: Invited to Twins' camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Hardy will receive an invitation to major-league spring training as part of the deal. He spent most of the 2019 campaign in the majors with the Tigers, posting a mediocre 4.47 ERA in 44.1 innings while striking out just 29 batters. He required a PRP injection in his left arm in mid-August and was shut down for the year.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Lands on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) was placed on outright waivers Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Hardy received a platelet-rich plasma injection to his left elbow in mid-August and missed the final two months of the season, and it now looks as though his time with the Tigers may be over. The 32-year-old wasn't expected to be tendered a contract by the Tigers in arbitration and will hit free agency if he goes unclaimed on waivers. Hardy had a 4.47 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 29:13 K:BB over 44.1 innings during 2019.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Gets injection for elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy announced Tuesday via his personal Twitter account that he underwent a successful procedure on his left elbow.

According to Chris McCosky of The Detroit News, Hardy didn't require Tommy John surgery to address his lingering elbow injury but instead received a platelet-rich plasma injection from Dr. James Andrews. Hardy's season is now over as a result of the injection, but he's expected to have a rather normal offseason. The southpaw will be re-evaluated by Andrews in six weeks and could be cleared to resume working out if his elbow heals as anticipated.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Officially done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

With just six weeks left in the season, this move effectively rules Hardy out for the remainder of the year. The southpaw, who compiled a 4.47 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 39 big-league innings this season, is set to receive a PRP injection in his elbow in the coming days as he recovers from a left flexor tendon strain. David McKay was added to the roster in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Likely out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) will get a PRP injection in his left arm and will likely be out for the rest of the season, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

The left-hander was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Aug. 8, and his elbow injury is apparently serious enough to require a PRP injection, although he'll likely avoid surgery, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. In 39 major-league appearances this season, Hardy posted an ERA of 4.47 with a 1.15 WHIP.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Dealing with elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy will receive a second opinion on his left elbow from Dr. James Andrews before reporting to Triple-A Toledo, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Hardy was optioned to Triple-A on Thursday but apparently his elbow isn't 100 percent, and he wants to be evaluated further before pitching in the minors. The 32-year-old has a 4.47 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 29:13 K:BB over 44.1 innings this season.

August 8, 2019 11:16 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Banished to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Hardy has posted a 4.47 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with a 29:13 K:BB over 44.1 innings this season in the big leagues. Edwin Jackson will have his contract selected from Triple-A Toledo on Friday in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Takes loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (1-1) took the loss Friday against the Royals, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while retiring two batters.

Hardy entered a 5-5 game in the bottom of the seventh inning and promptly allowed a solo home run to Martin Maldonado. A second run scored on a Hardy wild pitch. The lefty has taken a step backward in ERA this season, as it's climbed from 3.56 in 2018 to 4.42 in 2019. However, he's been able to lower his WHIP from 1.17 to 0.95, and Hardy could chip away at his ERA if he continues to effectively limit baserunners.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy allowed three runs on four hits and a walk across two innings in Thursday's 17-3 loss to the Athletics.

Hardy has now been scored upon in four of his last five appearances, and his season ERA sits at 6.75 through 16 innings. The lefty posted a respectable 3.56 ERA in 2018, but he really hasn't gotten going yet this year after dealing with a forearm injury that sidelined him for a few weeks.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (forearm) was activated from the injured list Saturday.

Hardy had been out since late April because of his injury, but he is ready to rejoin the big club after making two rehab appearances earlier this week. Hardy will look to turn things around after giving up eight earned runs over eight appearances out of the Tigers' bullpen earlier this season.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Could rejoin team this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (forearm) tossed two scoreless innings in a rehab appearance with High-A Lakeland Thursday and is on track to rejoin the Tigers on Friday in Minnesota, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Hardy last pitched for the Tigers on April 21, but he looks ready to get back into the bullpen. The lefty was a valuable member of Detroit's relief corps in 2018, as he made 30 appearances (13 starts), and posted a 3.56 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across 86 innings of work. He has a 6.00 ERA this season but has only logged 12 innings to date.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Set to begin rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (forearm) is expected to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment Monday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Hardy recently completed a second bullpen session without any discomfort, so he's now ready to move on to the final phase of his recovery program. The Tigers have already indicated that Hardy isn't viewed as an option to replace Jordan Zimmermann (elbow) in the rotation, so the southpaw will be ticketed for a bullpen role once activated from the 10-day injured list.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Won't return as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Gardenhire said Hardy (forearm) will be utilized as a reliever upon his return from the 10-day injured list, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

There had been some talk about stretching Hardy out to start when he returns from a forearm strain, but the Tigers don't want to put that stress on his arm. As such, he'll return to the bullpen once healthy. According to Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press, Hardy threw off a mound Wednesday. Prior to landing on the shelf, Hardy notched a 6.00 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 8:2 K:BB through 12 innings (eight appearances).

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Placed on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a forearm strain.

Hardy injured his forearm Sunday against the White Sox, prompting the Tigers to put him on the IL. Hardy will be unable to return until at least May 3, but given the nature of the injury it may be a lengthy absence. Detroit recalled Jose Fernandez in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Snags first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (1-0) allowed one run across two innings while striking out one to earn the win Thursday against the Royals.

Hardy allowed a solo home run to Alex Gordon, but the lefty was otherwise able to navigate through the seventh and eighth innings unscathed, and he scooped up the win in a 5-4 game. Hardy bounced between relief work and starting for the Tigers in 2018, posting a respectable 3.56 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across 86 innings of work.

March 22, 2019 06:40 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Having so-so spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After pitching 1.2 scoreless innings in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Hardy now has a 5.00 ERA this spring through nine innings.

It's a pretty small sample for Hardy, who turned in a solid 3.56 ERA for the Tigers across 86 innings in 2018 while working as both a reliever and a starter. The veteran lefty should once again fill a bullpen role to begin 2019.

January 12, 2019 08:08 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Signs with Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy signed a contract with the Tigers on Friday to avoid arbitration, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Hardy posted a solid 3.56 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with a 66:22 K:BB over 86 innings in 2018. The 31-year-old worked the first half of the season mostly as a starter but moved to the bullpen after an elbow injury in August. Hardy seems likely to fill a bullpen role in 2019 for the Tigers.

September 17, 2018 03:57 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Returns with scoreless frame Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) fired a scoreless inning Saturday against the Indians.

Hardy hasn't pitched for 12 days due to elbow inflammation, but he was able to get back into game action Saturday after successfully completing a bullpen session earlier in the week. With his 3.76 ERA and low strikeout rate, the southpaw figures to see mostly middle-relief appearances for the remainder of the season.
