O'Day (shoulder) is progressing through his rehab process but won't be ready to come off the DL on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day has been out since August 13 with an inflamed rotator cuff, but it appears Baltimore will have to wait before activating the 33-year-old reliever. Fortunately, O'Day hasn't hit a setback, the delay is simply a matter of the team wanting O'Day's shoulder to heal properly. Further information regarding an estimated return for O'Day should be known in the coming days.

O'Day (shoulder) is "inching forward" in his recovery, per manager Buck Showalter, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Showalter didn't offer much in terms of details, he noted that O'Day may not be ready to come off the DL when first eligible on August 27. At this point, it's still too early to speculate, though, and a more definitive update should be available within the next few days.

O'Day (shoulder) is expected to return when he's eligible to come off the disabled list Aug. 27, according to Baltimore manager Buck Showalter, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day was placed on the disabled list Friday with a strain in his right shoulder rotator cuff, after the right hander was knocked around pretty good the last three games. He had allowed five runs on four hits and three walks in 1.2 innings. With O'Day out of action, Mychal Givens will move up to take more high-leverage opportunities.

O'Day (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Aug. 12 with a rotator cuff strain.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day had been uncharacteristically hittable in a few of his recent outings, including a three-run meltdown against the White Sox on Aug. 5 and a two-run outing against the A's on Thursday. With this news, it's clear that he was trying to pitch through a balky shoulder. The Orioles didn't provide a timetable for his return, but shoulder issues can always be tricky for pitchers. Tyler Wilson was recalled in a corresponding move Saturday and Brad Brach figures to get most of the eighth inning work while O'Day is on the shelf.

O'Day picked up his third save by getting the final four outs Tuesday against the Rangers, striking out two along the way.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day got the final out of the eighth with a three-run lead, and was allowed to stay in for the ninth so as to not trouble regular closer Zach Britton once the advantage was expanded to four runs in the bottom of the frame. This was a pleasant surprise for the setup man's owners, but he's still clearly behind Britton in Baltimore's ninth-inning pecking order.

O'Day struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning Sunday to earn his third win of the season.

EDGE Analysis

He looked sharp in his first appearance since recovering from a hamstring injury, and Nolan Reimold's walkoff homer in the bottom half of the ninth gave O'Day a nice reward for his efforts. He should resume his spot as one of Zach Britton's setup men going forward and be a strong source of holds and strikeouts down the stretch.

O'Day (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day DL on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day's pregame workout Sunday apparently went off without a hitch, so the Orioles were comfortable clearing him to return from the hamstring injury that's dogged him since early June. The 33-year-old made just one rehab appearance at Double-A Bowie prior to his activation, but given that he's not dealing with any arm-related concerns, O'Day should be thrust back into a top setup role right away.

O'Day (hamstring) will be activated off the disabled list either Sunday or Monday, Roch Kubatiko of MASNsports.com reports.

O'Day (hamstring) is scheduled to pitch in a game at Double-A Bowie on Friday and could be activated off the disabled list as soon as Sunday or Monday, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The sidearm reliever pitched in a simulated game Tuesday and, provided that he feels fine afterwards, he'll get a rehab game under his belt over the weekend. If he continues to progress at the current rate, O'Day will likely return to the Orioles early next week.

O'Day (hamstring) will throw a simulated game Tuesday, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It seems O'Day's standard bullpen session Saturday was a success, as he's now set to face live hitters Tuesday in what typically represents the final step for a pitcher before they head out for rehab assignment. O'Day's walks were up considerably before he landed on the shelf and Brad Brach has seized the opportunity in O'Day's absence, putting himself in position to remain the primary setup option upon O'Day's return.
