O'Day struck out two in a perfect eighth inning Wednesday in Toronto to pick up his 16th hold of the year.

EDGE Analysis

Through 59 games, the veteran reliever owns a respectable 3.79 ERA and 1.13 WHIP, but O'Day continues to boost his value with a career-high strikeout rate. If the Orioles can get back to winning a few games down the stretch, the setup man holds reasonable value in leagues that reward holds.

After posting an awful 6.46 ERA over 16 games in June and July, O'Day has bounced back with a 1.64 ERA, and a season-best .147 BABIP through 11 innings in August.

EDGE Analysis

The 10th-year veteran has struggled to stop the bleeding this season, posting a 68.1 percent strand rate, O'Day's worst mark since his rookie campaign as an Angel in 2008. On the flip side, the righty has managed to own a K/9 above 10 for the third straight season. The 34-year-old is on pace to challenge the 20-hold mark, and with a fine strikeout rate in tow, O'Day is a decent option in deep leagues that value such relievers.

O'Day (1-3) was charged with his second blown save while taking the loss Saturday after allowing a three-run homer and collecting just two outs (both via strikeout) against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Clinging to a one-run lead with one out in the top of the sixth inning, O'Day relieved starter Chris Tillman and immediately surrendered back-to-back singles. He froze Alex Bregman on a called third strike, but then served up the deciding long ball to pinch hitter Marwin Gonzalez. O'Day seemed to be making strides in the week's leading up to the All-Star Break, but has been beat up early in the second half. After allowing five runs over his last 2.2 innings, the right-hander now owns a 4.81 ERA, his highest mark since May 8.

O'Day struck out the only batter he faced Saturday against Minnesota to pick up his 11th hold of the season.

EDGE Analysis

He hasn't been as dominant in 2017 as we've become used to, as evidenced by his worst ERA (3.86) since joining the Orioles in 2012. O'Day has struggled with command more this year than in past seasons, but overall the veteran has been serviceable when deployed tactfully in leagues that reward holds.

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.
