CLEVELAND (AP) - Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy, out nearly three months with a broken right wrist, has been activated from the 60-day disabled list.

Hardy was hit by a pitch on June 18 and placed on the DL the following day. He is batting .211 with three home runs and 21 RBIs in 64 games and recently completed a minor league rehab assignment.

Tim Beckham, acquired from Tampa Bay at the trade deadline, has taken over the shortstop duties. He’s batting .359 with seven homers and 20 RBIs since the trade.

Left-hander Andrew Faulkner, who had been pitching at Triple-A Norfolk, was designated for assignment.
