"I don't know. I don't know what to say because no matter what I say it's going to cause some controversy, a story that I really don't want to get involved with right now," Hardy told CSNBaltimore.com. "There's been no talk. There was going to be talk, and then there wasn't. That's kind of the way it's been left."

The 31-year-old Hardy joined the Orioles prior to the 2011 season and during that time he's won two Gold Gloves and a Silver Slugger Award.

Now in his tenth Major League season, Hardy has averaged over 25 home runs in his three seasons with the Orioles.
