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.
Apr 3 - 11:49 AM

Darren O'Day is dealing with a battling a bad case of the flu.

O'Day is surely on antibiotics and should be fine by Monday, but this is worth keeping an eye on. He's again slated to set up for the Orioles in 2017.
Mar 31 - 2:48 PM

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

O'Day threw a couple simulated games and had no issues with his shoulder, clearing the way for his return. He'll resume setup duties for the O's.

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.
Sun, Sep 11, 2016 09:52:00 AM

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.
Wed, Sep 7, 2016 10:59:00 AM

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.
Fri, Sep 2, 2016 04:37:00 PM

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.
