On Saturday Baltimore Orioles vice president Dan Duquette said that the team would discuss a contract extension with shortstop J.J. Hardy.
Hardly, 31, claimed both the Silver Slugger and Gold Glove awards at short stop last season as he slashed .263/.306/.433 with 25 home runs and 76 RBI.

Duquette also said that the Orioles have not attempted to trade away All-Star catcher Matt Wieters this offseason. He also added that the team was trying to work out a multi-year extension with home run king Chris Davis prior to the two sides agreeing on a one-year deal. Expect those discussions to continue at some point.
