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.

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.

September 12, 2018 04:04 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Could be available this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) tossed a bullpen session Wednesday and expects to be ready for action against the Indians this weekend, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports.

Hardy has only pitched once since Aug. 14 due to elbow tendinitis and most recently, inflammation in his left (pitching) elbow. It appears as though he has made some steady progress over the past few days as he claimed that the elbow "felt good" following Wednesday's session. Moving forward, look for Hardy to remain in Detroit's bullpen for the remainder of the 2018 season since the club will refrain from stretching him back out with only a few weeks left to play.

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

Hardy is dealing with elbow inflammation, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Hardy spent time on the disabled list in August with elbow tendinitis. While he looked sharp in his return earlier in September, striking out three while allowing just one hit across two scoreless innings, the southpaw apparently aggravated the injury in the process. Hardy is scheduled to throw a side session in the next day or two, suggesting the injury may not be anything overly serious.

August 31, 2018 03:44 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Returns from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) was activated off the 10-day disabled list Saturday.

Hardy will enter the Tigers' bullpen group after spending the last two weeks on the DL with left elbow tendinitis. The 31-year-old had a 1.69 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB over 10.2 innings as a reliever this season.

August 26, 2018 04:16 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Beginning rehab assignment Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) will make his first rehab appearance at Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

The Tigers could have Hardy build up to a starter's workload during the rehab assignment, but the team intends to deploy him out of the bullpen once he's reinstated from the 10-day disabled list. Hardy has been sidelined for just under two weeks with left elbow tendinitis, so he's only expected to require two rehab outings to prove his health.

August 22, 2018 05:32 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Expected to join bullpen upon return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) is expected to join the bullpen when activated from the disabled list Monday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

The decision was made to protect Hardy's arm, with manager Ron Gardenhire adding that "his arm is feeling great and we want to keep it that way." Ryan Carpenter will stick in the rotation as a result of Hardy transitioning back to the bullpen. Through 10 appearances (10.2 innings) as a reliever this season, Hardy owns a solid 1.69 ERA.

August 22, 2018 01:16 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Expected back next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (elbow) should be ready to come off the 10-day disabled list when first eligible Monday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Since the team is off Monday and aren't expected to require a fifth starter again until Aug. 31, the Tigers may wait until that date before officially activating Hardy and reinserting him to the rotation. Hardy was placed on the DL on Aug. 17 after developing inflammation in his left elbow, but because of the brevity of his absence and the progress he has already shown in his recovery, he's unlikely to require a minor-league rehab assignment before rejoining the Tigers.

August 17, 2018 05:45 PM
Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Heads to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday due to elbow tendinitis, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

It's unclear as to when this issue started to bother Hardy, but he'll be forced to hit the shelf until at least Aug. 28. The timetable for his return is unclear, although he did undergo an MRI that revealed no structural damage, per Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press. Ryan Carpenter has been called up in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Gives up four runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (4-5) allowed four earned runs over four innings to take the loss Tuesday against the White Sox. He gave up five hits and a walk while striking out four.

Hardy got off to a rocky start, allowing all four of his runs in the first two innings before settling down somewhat. The 31-year-old lefty has been roughed up a bit in his last two appearances, going 0-2 and allowing nine earned runs over nine innings. Hardy will still take a decent 3.91 ERA into his next outing, which is scheduled for Sunday against the Twins.

Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Takes loss against Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (4-4) allowed five earned runs over five innings to take the loss against the Angels Wednesday. He gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out three.

Long balls did in Hardy, as he gave up three home runs, including back-to-back shots to Justin Upton and Albert Pujols in the fifth inning. Despite the rough outing, Hardy still has a solid 3.63 ERA this season. The lefty will look to get back on track in his next start, which is scheduled for Tuesday against the White Sox.
