Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters that Darren O'Day is likely to get a cortisone injection in his right elbow.
O'Day was supposed to throw a bullpen on Wednesday, but the right-hander wasn't feeling healthy enough to do so. If he received the injection, the Orioles will likely have the right-hander wait at least a few days to see how he responds, and then proceed from there. It's very unlikely we see him back on the mound before the end of May. May 24 - 12:39 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters that Darren O'Day's elbow didn't feel well enough for him to throw a bullpen session.

Showalter also mentioned that further testing might be required. It would make sense that O'Day would be shut down to let the pain subside, and then the Orioles can reevaluate where the right-hander stands before making further decisions. For now, it seems unlikely he's back before the end of May.

Darren O'Day (elbow) is likely to need a rehab assignment before being activated.

The Orioles initially hoped to have O'Day back this past weekend, but they've decided to proceed more cautiously with his rehab. He will throw another bullpen session Tuesday and might be ready for a rehab appearance after that.
May 21 - 6:36 PM

Darren O'Day (elbow) is unlikely to be activated from the disabled list until at least Sunday.

O'Day threw a bullpen session Wednesday and is expected to throw another one Friday. "Getting closer but not quite the quick progress we hoped," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday. "He’ll probably throw again tomorrow. I don’t see him, he’s not going to be activated tonight, we’ll see. I’m not going to say no for sure tomorrow, but I’d say that might be a little stretch right now." O'Day, who hyperextended his elbow while stretching, was seeing some save chances before going on the DL and could be thrown back into the ninth inning mix, although Brad Brach has pitched better of late. Zach Britton (Achilles) is also due back before long.

Darren O'Day (elbow) threw a successful bullpen session on Wednesday morning.

If he responds well to the workout, the Orioles could activate him from the disabled list ahead of Friday night's game against the Red Sox. O'Day has been out for 10 days with a hyperextended right elbow.
May 16 - 11:30 AM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that Darren O'Day (elbow) is close to returning.

O'Day won't be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Wednesday, but it sounds like he could be ready sometime this weekend. The right-handed setup man has been out since May 6 with a hyperextended elbow.
May 15 - 4:41 PM

Darren O'Day (elbow) will do some throwing Sunday.

If it goes well, he's expected to be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday or Thursday without going out on a rehab assignment. O'Day has missed the last week of action with a hyperextended right elbow. Brad Brach has pitched better lately, but it's possible O'Day could re-enter the mix for saves.
May 13 - 12:00 PM

An MRI taken Thursday on the right elbow of Darren O'Day showed no structural damage.

O'Day was placed on the disabled list Wednesday, retroactive to May 6, with a hyperextended right elbow and Thursday's scan confirmed that initial diagnosis. He suffered the injury when a teammate ran into him while he was stretching in the bullpen earlier this week. It shouldn't be too long of an absence.
May 10 - 3:28 PM

Orioles placed RHP Darren O'Day on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to May 6 with a hyperextended right elbow.

O'Day hasn't pitched for the Orioles since May 4, and now we know why. Tanner Scott will take O'Day's place on the 25-man roster. For the year, the right-hander has a 3.77 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 13 appearances out of the Baltimore bullpen.
May 9 - 5:29 PM

Darren O'Day picked up his second save of the season by pitching a scoreless ninth in a win over the Tigers.

O'Day didn't allow a runner, and he struck out two. The scoreless inning lowers O'Day's ERA to 3.86 to go along with the pair of saves. Because his save opportunities are few and far between, he doesn't hold much fantasy value in anything but leagues that award you for holds.
Apr 29 - 4:33 PM

Darren O'Day picked up his first save of the 2018 campaign on Friday with a scoreless ninth inning against the Indians.

With Brad Brach unavailable on Friday, O'Day was handed the ball with a two-run lead to protect in the ninth inning and he didn't disappoint, setting down the Indians in order including a pair of strikeouts.
Apr 20 - 10:51 PM

Orioles activated RHP Darren O'Day from the 10-day disabled list.

O'Day has been out for over two weeks with a strained shoulder, but he made it through a few throwing sessions of late with no issues. He'll return to a setup role.

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.
Wed, Jun 21, 2017 04:49:00 PM

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.
Mon, Jun 19, 2017 04:43:00 PM

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.
