After a sluggish spring and a slow start to the season, Hardy has been more productive in May. After going 0-for-4 on Tuesday night against the Yankees, the Orioles shortstop is batting .282 in the month of May with five home runs, four doubles and 11 RBIs. His average is still .234, but it could be better if the ball bounced his way more often. According to ESPN Stats and Info, Hardy leads the major leagues in percentage of swings resulting in a ball put in play at around 58 percent. But his batting average on balls put in play was just .221, a BABIP that ranks among baseball's lowest.
