Orioles Hardy not going to change approach at plate

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles' Grapefruit League games haven't even started, but J.J. Hardy has already flashed the home run power he displayed in full last season.

Hardy said he couldn't remember having hit a homer yet this spring, even in coaches' batting practice, but he took a fastball from right-hander Armando Galarraga over the left-field fence at Ed Smith Stadium on Saturday in the club's second intrasquad game. The shortstop erupted for 30 homers in 2011 despite hitting only 17 over the previous two seasons combined.

"Definitely a little bit of a surprise for me," Hardy said of Saturday's homer. "Obviously I'll take 'em, but I would definitely not even come close to saying I'm locked in. It's way too early for that. I don't want to be locked in yet."
