Darren O'Day Ks two, picks up relief win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Orioles reliever Darren O'Day struck out the only two batters he faced and picked up his third win of the season. He needed only 10 pitchers to retire two batters in the ninth, while the team scored the go-ahead run in the 10th to win the game. He owns a 1.00 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP over 45 innings of relief.

Darren O'Day untouchable lately


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(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.
