Brewers may bring Hardy back today; play St. Louis tonight
The Milwaukee Brewers are expected to bring shortstop J.J. Hardy back from the minors today, as teams are allowed to expand their rosters from 25-40 players. Hardy was batting .229 when he was sent down to Triple-A Nashville on Aug. 12, supposedly to work on his swing.
But because he spent 20 days in the minors, he lost a year of service time in the Majors - and that means he'll be eligible for free agency in 2011 instead of next year.
