2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The 28-year-old lefty reliever made his major league debut last season, appearing in 38 games out of the Tigers' bullpen. He finished the season 2-1 with a 2.54 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 31 strikeouts and four holds in 39 innings. On the surface, Hardy was one of the more successful bullpen options for the Tigers in 2014, but there are some chinks in his armor. Hardy walked batters at a high clip (4.6 BB/9) and posted a 3.49 FIP. While he is considered a moderate groundball pitcher, his 0.2 HR/9 and 3.1% HR/FB are both unsustainable. Hardy doesnít overpower on the mound, but unlike many relievers, he has a four-pitch arsenal (fastball, cutter, curveball and changeup). His fastball sits around 90 mph, and proved to be his most productive pitch last season, but his curveball induces plenty of swings and misses and could be his primary out-pitch going forward. While Hardy was more effective against left-handed hitters, he also managed to hold his own against righties, limiting 93 right-handed batters to a .263/.366/.291 slash line. The Tigers havenít been shopping around for left-handed bullpen help this offseason, which means Hardy will most likely be one of the teamís top relief southpaws to begin the season. Some regression should be expected, but Hardy could be a sneaky source of holds if his role increases in 2015.
