Hardy, 27, batted .229 (95-for-414) with 16 doubles, two triples, 11 home runs and 47 rbi in 115 games for the Brewers in 2009.  With 26 home runs in 2007 and 24 in 2008, he became the third shortstop in Brewers' history to hit more than 20 home runs in a season twice, joining Robin Yount and Jose Hernandez.
