by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

O'Day struck out four batters and needed just 24 pitches to cruise through the final six outs of the game. He earned the save, his second of the year.

Orioles RP Darren O'Day picks up relief win on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/4/2015) Reliever Darren O'Day picked up his second win of the season after the Orioles were able to get the winning run across in the top of the eighth to beat the Astros 3-2 on Thursday. O'Day entered the game with one out in the seventh and wound up with a full inning of work. He struck out two and walked two in his scoreless outing.

"We haven't been playing as well as we can. We know that we're better than the team that's been out there," O'Day said, per MLB.com. "Today we played a pretty tight game. We're not getting blown out. It's just the little things you do to win a game in all facets of the game. Getting out of jams is big. It kind of gives you a little momentum surge, and Adam had great timing there with that home run."

The right-hander has been scored upon three times in his 22 appearances this season and owns a nifty 0.89 ERA. 


Darren O'Day earns win in relief for Orioles


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Orioles reliever Darren O'Day pitched a scoreless ninth inning and picked up a win over Tampa Bay on Friday. 

O'Day moved to 1-0 and lowered his ERA to 0.95. He allowed two hits but struck out two to escape the jam.

"There was definitely some luck involved to get out of that," he said.  


Orioles' Darren O'Day earns four-out save Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Showalter: Darren O'Day won't pitch much for Orioles in spring


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that RHP Darren O'Day won't pitch in many spring training games. 

O'Day told the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina that he'll throw plenty of live batting practice and bullpen sessions. Since he doesn't need to prove anything to make the team, O'Day thinks he only needs nine or 10 innings in spring games to prepare for the regular season. 

"They’ve done a good job of identifying the guys who need to be held off a little bit and save the bullets so we’ll be fresh in August, September and October," O'Day said. 

O'Day went 5-2 with four saves and a 1.70 ERA in 68 games last season. 


Orioles bring back Wei-Yin Chen, Darren O'Day


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) The Orioles have brought back pitcher Wei-Yin Chen and Darren O'Day for next season.

The club had options on both players and decided to pick them up. Chen posted a 3.54 ERA over 185 2/3 innings last year. O'Day posted a 1.70 ERA over 68 2/3 innings. 


Report: Orioles make option decisions on three players


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Orioles have made decisions regarding team options on several players, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Among them is southpaw starter Wei-Yin Chen, whose $4.75 million option for 2015 will be picked up. The team will do the same for impressive right-handed reliever Darren O'Day, whose $4.25 million option will also be picked up.

The exception is catcher Nick Hundley. The team will not exercise his $2.5 million option, making him a free agent.


Darren O'Day bounces back to shut down Yankees


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Sidearming Orioles right-hander Darren O'Day closed out the Yankees in a rare save opportunity Wednesday.

O'Day arrived in the game with two outs and two on in the eighth and retired Chris Young on a groundout before a 1-2-3 ninth that included a game-ending strikeout of Brett Gardner.

He had given up one run in three of his last four appearances.


Darren O'Day snags surprise save for Baltimore


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Orioles right-hander Darren O'Day likely never figured he would get into the game Wednesday afternoon in Boston, especially when his team took a 10-1 lead into the ninth inning.

But a five-run Red Sox explosion forced O'Day into a save situation as Buck Showalker sought to save closer Zach Britton. O'Day retired Xander Bogaerts on a grounder with two on base to nail down his third save.


Hamstring shouldn't keep Darren O'Day out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Orioles pitcher Darren O'Day was not available out of the bullpen Friday due to a hamstring injury, but his absence should be brief.

"I think I'm good to go," O'Day told MLB.com Saturday, after getting through a bullpen session and various drills before the game.

O'Day has been a big part of the Orioles bullpen this season, posting a 1.34 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 60 1/3 innings overall.  


Darren O'Day Ks two, picks up relief win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Darren O'Day untouchable lately


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(7/21/2014) Orioles pitcher Darren O'Day has not allowed a run in his last 11 appearances, and his 1.06 ERA is tops among qualifying AL relievers, notes MLB.com. He's 2-1 with two saves and 42 strikeouts in 42 1/3 innings.

Darren O'Day takes loss vs. Rays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Orioles pitcher Darren O'Day suffered his first loss of the season Monday after giving up one earned run on one hit and one walk in one inning and striking out one in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Rays.

O'Day (2-1) has been great this season, but he's allowed earned runs in three of his last five appearances. Before the five-game stretch, his only runs came on two solo home runs earlier in the season. O'Day owns a 1.52 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings.


Darren O'Day earns second win Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Orioles pitcher Darren O'Day was awarded a win Monday after pitching a scoreless ninth inning in his team's 7-6, 10-inning win over the Brewers.

The Orioles were able to come from behind to tie the game at 6-6 in the top of the ninth before O'Day (2-0) came on to give up one hit but nothing else in the bottom half of the inning. He owns a 0.90 ERA and 16:4 K:BB ratio in 20 innings.


Darren O'Day to interfere with Zach Britton?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/21/2014) Well, that was weird.

Zach Britton, who recorded the Orioles' last save and appeared to be the favorite to replace struggling Tommy Hunter as closer, entered in the eighth inning of a blowout win over the Pirates Tuesday. Granted, he hadn't pitched in five days, but usually when a team brings in its closer for extra work, it's still in the ninth inning.

Hunter, meanwhile, pitched the seventh inning, so it's not like he's any closer to regaining the role. But what about Darren O'Day, who recorded the final two outs? He seemed like the obvious choice to fill in as closer before Britton threw his hat in the ring.

In this case, Showalter chose to play the matchups, bringing Britton in to face of a stretch of the Pirates' lineup that included two left-handed batters and a switch-hitter. With two right-handed batters due up next, he then brought in O'Day, who hit one and ended up having to retire a left-handed batter anyway. Would Showalter have done the same in a save situation? Would he have done the same May 15, when Britton recorded his first save, if O'Day hadn't already pitched in that game?

Don't get too cozy, Britton owners. Nothing has been determined yet.


Zach Britton the Orioles reliever to own


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/16/2014) Those who speculated Zach Britton would take over for Tommy Hunter as Orioles closer appeared to be dead on Thursday night, when he pitched a perfect ninth inning for his first career save.

I now consider myself among them.

Darren O'Day, my horse in this race, actually entered the game in the sixth inning and pitched the seventh as well, showing precisely the versatility that most likely compelled manager Buck Showalter to look elsewhere.

And Britton could be fine. The failed starting pitcher prospect is unproven as a reliever and not much of a bat-misser, but he throws hard and is an extreme ground ball pitcher, meaning he'll at least keep the ball in the yard. So far, he's done much more than that, compiling a 0.81 ERA and 0.85 WHIP in 17 appearances.

My gut tells me it's his job until he falters, which means I'd be willing to cut Tommy Hunter for him if it came to that. Maybe he will falter and, by that point, Hunter will have redeemed himself, but given Hunter's lack of track record as a closer, it's probably not a Jim Johnson or Ernesto Frieri situation where the Orioles are looking to get him back in the role.


Examining Orioles closer candidates


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/15/2014) Nobody knows exactly who will get the next save for the Orioles, but most likely, it won't be Tommy Hunter, who has blown consecutive save opportunities and allowed eight earned runs in his last four appearances.

Though Zach Britton, with his 0.84 ERA in 16 appearances, has been mentioned as a possible replacement, Darren O'Day would be the more logical choice as a right-handed reliever accustomed to late-inning pressure. He has a 0.60 ERA in 16 appearances and a 2.06 ERA in 153 appearances since joining the Orioles in 2012.

Granted, he wasn't much of a candidate for the role this spring since moving him there would create a hole in the eighth inning, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Manager Buck Showalter knows he can trust O'Day to deliver, and trust may beat out everything else at this point.

It's reason enough to take a flier on O'Day if you own Hunter or are otherwise short on saves. 


Darren O'Day spells Tommy Hunter, collects second save


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) Orioles reliever Darren O'Day spelled Tommy Hunter for the evening and collected his second save of the season Thursday night against the Rays in Tampa.

O'Day allowed back-to-back singles before forcing a double play and a Matt Joyce groundout to end the game. He owns a 0.69 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP in 13 innings of relief this season.

Darren O'Day collects rare four-out save


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Orioles reliever Darren O'Day collected his first save of the season Friday night against the Red Sox in Boston.

O'Day issued one walk and recorded the last four outs of the game, securing an 8-4 victory. He has not allowed a run over his first 6 1/3 innings pitched.

Darren O'Day not a candidate for closer's role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) Orioles manager Buck Showalter told MLB Network Radio said he will choose a closer from the relievers currently on the roster.

"Until I hear differently from (executive vice president of baseball operations) Dan (Duquette), I'm looking like it's (a decision) from within," Showalter said.

However, Showalter said reliever Darren O'Day is not a candidate for the closer's role. O'Day was 5-3 with a 2.18 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, two saves and 20 holds last season.


Darren O'Day available Wednesday


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2013) Orioles reliever Darren O'Day is available out of the bullpen Wednesday for the first time since Sept. 7, MASN reports.

O'Day had a successful bullpen session Tuesday after taking an injection to suppress numbness in his fingers last Friday. He owns a 2.28 ERA with 57 strikeouts in 59 1/3 innings for Baltimore.
