Hardy out of lineup again

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is out of the lineup again today because of a sore right arm. Robert Andino will make his second consecutive start at shortstop.

Hardy didn't throw yesterday and also will rest today.

"We just want to get it under control," Hardy said, adding that he could play through the discomfort it if were the regular season.

"My arm, shoulder, it's just not feeling good. It's something I deal with every year. It's a nagging thing, but it's sticking around a little longer than normal."

Hardy has been icing his arm as part of his treatment.

"Every year when I come back, it kind of hurts," he said. "It's just a matter of getting the rust out of there. It's not anything I can't play through."
