Darren O'Day (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday or Monday.

O'Day got through another simulated game Friday with no issues. Assuming he recovers well, he'll rejoin the Orioles' bullpen in the next few days.

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

He'll do another simulated workout on Friday and could be cleared to return to the Orioles' bullpen if that one goes well. The setup man has missed much of the last 10 weeks due to hamstring and shoulder troubles. It'll be a big help for the O's if he's able to get back and stay healthy for the final two weeks of the regular season (and then into October).

Darren O'Day (shoulder) will throw a simulated game Tuesday.

It will come after another bullpen session Sunday. If Tuesday's simulated game goes well, it seems likely that O'Day will be activated from the disabled list at that point. The reliever has missed the last month with a right rotator cuff strain.

Darren O'Day (shoulder) threw 26 pitches off a mound Wednesday.

And the O's setup man said after the workout that it's the best he's felt since he went down last month with a strained right rotator cuff. O'Day should advance to some type of simulated action by the weekend and could be back in the Baltimore bullpen early next week. He holds a 3.95 ERA and 33/13 K/BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings this season.

Darren O'Day (shoulder) will throw off a half mound on Sunday.

His session of Friday on Friday apparently went well. There's no timetable yet for O'Day's return, but he's making progress.

Darren O'Day (shoulder) played catch Friday.

O'Day has missed the last month with a rotator cuff strain. A cortisone shot last month didn't help the soreness, but he's apparently feeling well enough to toss the ball around again. There's no timetable for his return.
Fri, Sep 2, 2016 03:03:00 PM

Darren O'Day is still feeling pain in his shoulder and has no timetable for his return.

O'Day was given a cortisone shot in hopes that it will help alleviate some rotator cuff soreness, but it apparently didn't work. The reliever is eligible for a return on August 27, but he's not going to be ready then.

Darren O'Day (shoulder) might not return when first eligible as initially hoped.

O'Day received a cortisone shot to combat his rotator cuff soreness and is "inching forward, little by little," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. The O's aren't ruling out a return on August 27 when the reliever is first eligible, but they're in a holding pattern for now. "I wouldn’t characterize it as confident," Showalter said. "It’s a possibility. He’s getting a little better every day, but I’m hoping the day comes where there’s a big leap in what he’s feeling. We haven’t gotten there yet, so it’s tough to handicap when."

Orioles placed RHP Darren O'Day on the 15-day disabled list with a strained rotator cuff.

O'Day has been one of the best setup men in baseball over the past few years but hasn't been able to stay healthy in 2016. Even with the side-arming O'Day on the shelf, the O's still have a deep pen led by stud closer Zach Britton and first-time All-Star Brad Bach. O'Day received a cortisone shot on Saturday and the Orioles are optimistic he'll be back as soon as the required 15 days are up.

Orioles activated RHP Darren O'Day from the 15-day disabled list.

O'Day has been on the shelf since early June with a nagging hamstring injury. He'll return to a setup role.
Sun, Jul 24, 2016 01:14:00 PM

Darren O'Day (hamstring) is scheduled to make a rehab appearance at Double-A Bowie on Friday.

O'Day made it through a 25-pitch simulated game Tuesday without issue and will now test his hamstring against Double-A hitters. He should only need two or three minor league rehab appearances before returning to the Baltimore bullpen. Look for the setup man to be activated Sunday or Monday.
Tue, Jul 19, 2016 05:42:00 PM

Darren O'Day (hamstring) threw about 25 pitches over two innings in a simulated game on Tuesday.

The Orioles haven't announced the next step, but O'Day could be activated from the disabled list, throw one more simulated game, or go out on a brief minor league rehab assignment. The veteran reliever has been out since the start of June with a hamstring strain.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Darren O'Day (hamstring) could be activated this week.

O'Day is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Tuesday and it's possible he'll be activated after that. The veteran reliever has been out since the start of June with a hamstring strain, but he's expected to return to a prominent role whenever he's ready.
Mon, Jul 18, 2016 05:49:00 PM

Darren O'Day (hamstring) will throw a simulated game on Tuesday.

Saturday's bullpen session must have gone well. O'Day has been out much longer than expected with a strained hamstring but it looks like he's finally turned a corner. It's unclear if he'll need a minor league rehab assignment.
