O'Day was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Friday.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day returns to the bullpen after having been out since June 6 with a right shoulder strain and should be immediately available for this weekend's series with the Rays. The right-hander brings stability back to the Orioles' bullpen, as he likely slots back into a setup role behind closer Brad Brach and his 13 saves. O'Day will seek to improve upon his 3.86 ERA and 1.24 WHIP as he works back into regular action.

O'Day (shoulder) is set to be reinstated off the DL on Friday prior to the Orioles game with Tampa Bay, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

After landing on the disabled list June 9 following a feeling of discomfort in his shoulder, O'Day has worked his way back to bullpen. He threw a simulated game Wednesday and should return to his setup role following his reinstatement.

O'Day (shoulder) experienced no issues while pitching in a simulated game Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Orioles will check back on O'Day's condition Thursday, but if the right-hander's shoulder is deemed to be in sound condition, he'll likely be activated ahead of Friday's series opener with the Rays. Once he comes off the 10-day disabled list, O'Day should immediately step back into a setup role for closer Brad Brach.

O'Day is scheduled to throw a simulated game Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day continues to ramp up his throwing well, with this development coming after he completed a throwing session on a mound Monday. If all goes well with Wednesday's outing, the Orioles hope to activate him in time for Friday's contest with the Rays. He'll presumably resume his normal setup duties upon activation.

O'Day (shoulder) is scheduled to throw off a mound Monday, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day was able to get through a pair of flat ground throwing sessions this week without a hitch, so he'll progress to mound work for the first time since landing on the disabled list. If all goes well O'Day could be back with the team early next week, at which point he'll resume his role as the Orioles' primary setup man.

O'Day (shoulder) completed a successful throwing session Thursday, The Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Speaking about his reliever's workout, Orioles' manager Buck Showalter said, "No pain, no problems." The team could certainly use its setup man back in a hurry, and if all goes well, O'Day could be ready to rejoin the club as early as Monday when the righty is eligible to be activated.

O'Day (shoulder) will go on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder soreness, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day had felt discomfort in the shoulder following his time on the mound Tuesday against the Pirates, and will make a trip to the disabled list without any signs of progress occurring since then. Throughout the course of the year, O'Day has posted a 3.86 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP in just over 23 innings of work. The Orioles will miss their main set-up man while he recovers, with newly-recalled Edwin Jackson likely earning some work in his absence.

O'Day has found more success against left-handed hitters this season due to a change in his slider usage, Nate Delong of Camden Depot reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day has limited left-handed hitters to a .129 BAA this season. That's remarkably lower than the .243 average that group managed in 2016. The explanation for this drastic improvement seems fairly simple. Compared to last year, O'Day has increased his slider usage against lefties in by seven percent. Furthermore, he's managed to throw the pitch for a strike more often while using it early in the count in 2017. The problem for O'Day is that the 34-year-old's marks against right-handed hitters have dipped greatly compared to previous campaigns.

O'Day was dealing with a tired shoulder but is good to go for Tuesday's game against the Royals after warming up before the game, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Little information was ever disclosed about this issue, but it turned out to be fairly minor. O'Day should continue to act as one of the premier relievers at the Orioles' disposal, although Brad Brach seems to have a leg up on collecting saves for the time being.
