O'Day (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

After completing a simulated game Friday, O'Day proved to the team that he was ready to come off the DL. He'll return to the Orioles' bullpen, where he's built a 3.95 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 30 games (27.1 innings).

O'Day (shoulder) threw a simulated game Friday and manager Buck Showalter said it went well, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The sim game was the final test for O'Day and it sounds like he passed with flying colors. Showalter said that if O'Day responds well overnight, he will likely be activated Sunday or Monday. It's hard to imagine O'Day wouldn't return to the back-end mix right away even after the five-plus week layoff.

O'Day (shoulder) is on track to be activated from the disabled list Sunday or Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day through a simulated game Tuesday without issue, and is scheduled for one more Friday as the final step in his recovery. As long as he makes it through that session without issue, he will be added back to the roster either over the weekend or early next week.

O'Day (shoulder) could throw a simulated game Tuesday, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

His recovery from a rotator cuff strain has pushed well beyond the initial two-week estimate, but it appears O'Day is nearing a return to the active roster. If he continues to respond well to his side work and progresses to facing live hitters early next week, O'Day should make it back for the first part of the homestand.

O'Day (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Friday and is expected to come off the DL next week, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

EDGE Analysis

Assuming he makes it through Friday's session fine, O'Day will throw a simulated game Sunday as the final step before coming off the DL next week. He said his shoulder feels better than it has since he first injured it, which is encouraging. Look for him to return to a mid-to-high leverage role out of the bullpen in the middle of next week.

O'Day (shoulder) will throw off a half mound Sunday, Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day will not throw a true bullpen session since he will not throw from a standard mound, but that seems to be the likely next step if he is able to get through Sunday's session without issue.

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.
