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.

O'Day (hamstring) is slated to throw another bullpen session Saturday, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

His throwing session Thursday was said to have gone "great" and was described as a "big step for him." A return before the end of next week is starting to look like a possibility for O'Day, but he will need to erase any lingering doubt as to his health and may need a rehab appearance or two in order to do so.

O'Day will throw off flat ground again Sunday, then go to the team's complex in Florida during the break and join the team for their first series of the second half, CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Dubroff reports.

EDGE Analysis

His session throwing off flat ground went well Friday, and it sounds like he could join the big league club shortly after the break. Once healthy, O'Day could return to being one of the top setup men in the American League.

O'Day (hamstring) played catch off flat ground on Friday, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day continues to show positive signs in his recovery from a hamstring strain suffered on June 3. He's been throwing bullpen sessions and appears to be working out final kinks as he nears the end of his rehab program. The Orioles have said that the 33-year-old could return after the All-Star Break so a rehab assignment could be bypassed in favor of a more expedited major league return.

O'day (hamstring) could return as soon as the first day after the All-Star Break, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'day has been slightly behind schedule for the past couple of weeks, but with the All-Star Break coming up, the Orioles have no reason to rush him back. O'day will likely have to throw another bullpen session and possibly pitch in a rehab game or two before he is ready to return from the hamstring injury that has kept him out since June 1.

O'Day (hamstring) threw his second bullpen Tuesday, but may need another one before being cleared to toss a simulated game, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Buck Showalter said that there wasn't a setback Tuesday but he was hoping that O'Day would've advanced more by this time, which is the reason why he may need another bullpen session. O'Day should still be back before the team returns from their road trip, and will likely rejoin the Orioles sometime next week.
