O'Day has allowed just one run on four hits while assembling an impressive 10:1 K:BB through six Grapefruit League innings.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Buck Showalter took a reserved approach in rolling out the veteran this spring, but O'Day has been strong in his six appearances. In his first four seasons with Baltimore (2012-2015), the submarine right-hander managed a 1.92 ERA and 0.94 WHIP over 263 innings. O'Day had his 2016 campaign was plagued by injuries, but the 34-year-old appears ready to rebound with Opening Day quickly approaching.

O'Day won't see much action in early Grapefruit League games as the team plans to bring him along at a slowly during this year's extended spring training, Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day threw an inning in a simulated game Sunday, but manager Buck Showalter said the righty probably won't pitch in an exhibition game until mid-March. The reliever will begin logging innings in simulated and minor league games, and is scheduled to have at least one multiple-inning stint during spring training. An important piece of the Orioles' bullpen, O'Day pitched in just 34 games last season, his lowest total since 2011 with Texas, due to multiple stints on the DL. O'Day joined the O's in 2012 and was healthy for his first four seasons with the club. During that time, his 78 holds were fifth-best in the AL. Assuming he remains healthy for the entire campaign, O'Day should get back to being a solid source of holds in 2017.

O'Day has overcome the hamstring and shoulder issues that led him to the DL twice last season, MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Day, coming off one of the worst seasons in his eight-year MLB career, is a good bet to bounce back in 2017. Prior to last year's injury-plagued campaign, O'Day had logged 68-plus appearances and 62-plus innings in each of his first four seasons with Baltimore. During that span, the 34-year-old righty averaged 20 holds, six wins and three saves per season. A good spring would certainly boost owners' confidence, but either way O'Day should come at a nice value for league's that honor holds.

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.
