Darren O'Day (shoulder) threw a successful simulated game on Wednesday.

So long as O'Day does not feel any discomfort over the next day-plus, he is expected to be activated from the 10-day disabled list on Friday for this weekend's series against the Rays. He has been on the shelf since June 7 due to a minor right shoulder strain.

Darren O'Day (shoulder) is on track to be activated from the disabled list Friday.

O'Day threw an extensive bullpen session Monday and is set for a simulated game Wednesday. Assuming that goes well, he'll be activated for the weekend series in Tampa.

Darren O'Day (shoulder) threw on flat ground Thursday without issue.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that he's hopeful O'Day will be ready to return next week. The setup man has been out since June 7 with a minor right shoulder strain.
Jun 16 - 4:46 PM

Orioles placed RHP Darren O'Day on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 7, with a right shoulder strain.

O'Day has had the issue for a while and felt sore after pitching Tuesday against the Pirates. He's hoping to be back as soon as the 10 days are up.
Jun 9 - 5:42 PM

Darren O'Day worked a scoreless eighth inning in his return to action for the Orioles on Tuesday.

O'Day hadn't pitched in a week due to what Orioles manager Buck Showalter called "a little something." It was actually shoulder fatigue, but the 34-year-old right-hander looked plenty fit on Tuesday while striking out two of the batters he faced in a hitless frame against the Tigers.
May 17 - 8:43 AM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Darren O'Day is dealing with "a little something."

That would explain why he hasn't pitched since Monday. It's unclear what's ailing him but it doesn't sound like the Orioles are overly concerned. O'Day has been setting up for interim closer Brad Brach.
May 13 - 11:36 PM

Darren O'Day struck out two in a clean ninth inning to earn a save against the White Sox on Saturday.

It was his second save of the season. Orioles closer Zach Britton was put back on the disabled list yesterday and his absence could be longer this time. Brad Brach should get most of the save chances moving forward but O'Day will be in the mix as well.
May 7 - 12:01 AM

Darren O'Day failed to lock down the Orioles' two-run lead in the ninth inning Sunday against the Yankees.

The blown save technically went to Donnie Hart, but it was more O'Day's fault; he retired just two of the five hitters he faced in the ninth. Hart came in and gave up a two-run single to Didi Gregorius that tied the game. This was all after Brad Brach pitched a scoreless eighth. Fortunately, the Orioles will get Zach Britton back soon.
Apr 30 - 6:10 PM

Darren O'Day notched his first save of the season Saturday in the Orioles' win over the Red Sox.

Interim closer Brad Brach wasn't available after pitching three days in a row. O'Day only threw one pitch on Saturday after Donnie Hart recorded the first two outs of the ninth inning. With the tying run on base, Xander Bogaerts lined out to end the game. O'Day is usually lights out for the Orioles, but this year he carries a sluggish 7.50 ERA over nine outings.
Apr 22 - 11:10 PM

Darren O'Day was pounded for four earned runs in the ninth inning of Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

O'Day walked three and gave up two hits in the ugly afternoon outing at Camden Yards. He also struggled with free passes in his regular-season debut on Friday. Maybe that late-spring battle with the flu sapped some of his strength.
Apr 9 - 5:13 PM

Darren O'Day (flu) will be available to pitch on Wednesday.

O's manager Buck Showalter had floated the possibility on Monday that O'Day could be placed on the disabled list if he wasn't fully recovered from his bout with the flu by midweek. Crisis averted, it would appear, as O'Day has recovered from his illness and will be an option for Showalter to call on against the Blue Jays in Wednesday's game if need be.
Apr 5 - 4:36 PM

Darren O'Day said the disabled list was never a consideration despite a prolonged battle with the flu.

Manager Buck Showalter said he would consider DL'ing O'Day if he wasn't feeling better by Wednesday but it looks like that won't be necessary. The 34-year-old submariner is coming off a relatively disappointing season (3.77 ERA in 2016) but is one of the better late-inning arms in baseball when healthy.
Apr 5 - 3:30 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Darren O'Day (flu) could be placed on the disabled list if he's not ready to pitch by Wednesday.

O'Day has been under the weather since late last week. He did report improvement Monday, so chances are he'll be available out of the bullpen in a day or two.
Apr 3 - 7:22 PM

Darren O'Day (flu) said that he was feeling a lot better Monday.

O'Day recently came down with a bad case of the flu, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated that he's available for Monday's season opener. The 34-year-old is in line to set up for Zach Britton again in 2017.
