Yankees' Darren O'Day: Throwing to 120 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (shoulder) has increased his throwing distance to 120 feet and could pitch from a mound soon, reports.

The right-hander continues to make progress from a right rotator cuff strain that has kept him on the shelf since April 30. He remains without a specific return date but could return within a matter of weeks if he's able to return to a mound in the near future.

Yankees' Darren O'Day: Throwing to 90 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (shoulder) has been throwing to 90 feet but has not yet pitched from a mound, Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated reports.

O'Day is continuing to rehab from a right shoulder strain suffered at the end of April. The right-hander's return does not appear to be imminent given his lack of mound work thus far. When he gets back to full health, O'Day figures to retain a key spot in the Yankees' bullpen. He has three holds and a 3.00 ERA across nine innings this season.

Yankees' Darren O'Day: Begins throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (shoulder) played catch Saturday morning at Yankee Stadium, Bryan Hoch of reports.

This marks the start of O'Day's throwing program as he works his way back from a right shoulder strain, which he suffered April 30. The sidearmer was an effective late-inning option in 10 April appearances, posting a 3.00 ERA and recording three holds.

Yankees' Darren O'Day: Not ready to throw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said O'Day (shoulder) remains at least a couple weeks away from beginning a throwing program, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

O'Day is still in recovery mode after he was diagnosed May 1 with a right rotator cuff strain. As a reliever who typically doesn't work more than an inning in his appearances, O'Day won't require much time to build up, but he still appears unlikely to return from the injured list until at least late May while his throwing program is on hold.

Yankees' Darren O'Day: Placed on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a right rotator cuff strain, retroactive to April 30.

O'Day pitched in Thursday's loss to Baltimore and gave up one run on a hit and one walk in one inning. However, he's now dealing with a shoulder injury that will force him to miss time. Right-hander Michael King was recalled from the alternate training site in a corresponding move.

Yankees' Darren O'Day: Throwing well this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day has allowed one run on one hit through three innings in Grapefruit League play and has registered a 5:0 K:BB.

The veteran hasn't gotten into as many contests as most of his bullpen counterparts, but he has done well in his limited opportunities. The right-hander is expected to fill a middle-relief role in his first season with the Yankees.

Yankees' Darren O'Day: Signs with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day signed a one-year, $2.45 million contract with the Yankees on Wednesday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

The contract contains a mutual option for the 2022 season. O'Day's $3.5 million club option was declined by Atlanta in October despite the veteran posting a 1.25 ERA and 0.78 WHIP over 21.2 innings while making 27 relief appearances over the past two seasons. The right-hander should serve as a middle reliever for his new club heading into his age-38 season.

Darren O'Day: Option declined by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atlanta declined O'Day's $3.5 million club option for 2021 on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

O'Day missed most of the 2019 season with a forearm injury, but he pitched effectively when healthy over the last two seasons in Atlanta, posting a 1.25 ERA and 0.78 WHIP over 21.2 innings across 27 relief appearances. The 38-year-old will now hit free agency following his solid performance over a limited sample.

Braves' Darren O'Day: Fills in for the victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (4-0) pitched a scoreless fifth inning Tuesday, striking out one without allowing a baserunner to pick up an impromptu win during the Braves' 5-1 victory over the Orioles on Tuesday.

Starter Huascar Ynoa (back) threw four scoreless innings, giving up two hits and striking out five, but he was forced to leave the game with back tightness. O'Day was the first man up and recorded his fourth win in 16 appearances thus far, lowering his season ERA to a sparkling 0.64 in the process.

Braves' Darren O'Day: Nabs third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (3-0) picked up the win in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals, giving up one hit in a scoreless fifth inning.

Tommy Milone lasted only four frames as the starter, handing O'Day the win on a platter after he entered the game with a 5-1 lead. The veteran reliever has a sparkling 0.77 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 16:3 K:BB through 11.2 innings this season, but he remains in a fairly low-leverage role with zero saves or holds in 13 appearances.

Braves' Darren O'Day: Fighting control early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless innings of relief during Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays. He struck out two.

The sidearmer has had an inconsistent start to 2020 -- while his 2.45 ERA and five strikeouts in 3.2 innings over four appearances are solid, his three walks are a little concerning. O'Day does have a win, but unless he works his way into consistent high-leverage spots, his fantasy ceiling will be limited regardless of how sharp his control is.

Braves' Darren O'Day: Sharp in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day has posted a 0.00 ERA and 4:1 K:BB through three innings this spring.

The 37-year-old righty is expected to provide Atlanta with middle-relief innings this season, and O'Day looked healthy and nearly ready for Opening Day when MLB was put on pause. If he can avoid injuries this year, he could post double-digit holds for the first time since 2017.

Braves' Darren O'Day: Back with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day has signed a one-year, $2.25 million contract with the Braves, which includes a $3.5 million club option for 2021.

He logged a 1.69 ERA in eight games for the Braves last season after missing significant time with with a right forearm strain. For O'Day's career (585 games), right-handed hitters have batted just .195 against him. He should work in mid-leverage situations in 2020.

Braves' Darren O'Day: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (forearm) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Thursday.

O'Day has been on the shelf all season with a forearm injury, but he's ready to make his 2019 big-league debut after completing a four-game rehab assignment with no issues, striking out six batters while allowing just two hits across four innings in the process. Seeing as he's been sidelined all year, the Braves will likely deploy him in middle-to-low-leverage situations down the stretch. Alex Jackson (knee) was placed on the 60-day IL in a corresponding move.

Braves' Darren O'Day: Advances rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (forearm) moved his rehab assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

O'Day is nearly ready to return from a forearm injury which has affected him since early March. He's made two rehab appearances at lower levels thus far, striking out three and allowing one hit in a pair of scoreless innings. His exact return timeline is not yet clear.

Braves' Darren O'Day: Rehab moves to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (forearm) will shift his rehab assignment Tuesday from the Braves' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate to High-A Florida.

O'Day made one appearance in the GCL over the weekend, striking out two over a scoreless frame. The soft-tossing righty has been on the shelf all season due to the forearm issue, so the Braves will need to reinstate him from the 60-day IL before Sept. 1 in order for him to be eligible for the postseason. Assuming all goes well, Atlanta is expected to bump O'Day up to Triple-A Gwinnett after one appearance for the Fire Frogs, per David O'Brien of The Athletic.

Braves' Darren O'Day: To begin rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League on Saturday and could make it back before the end of the MLB season, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

He has been out all season with a forearm injury after undergoing hamstring surgery in 2018 but is finally ready to begin a rehab assignment. The fact he is starting out in the GCL illustrates how much work he still has to do before he's ready to join the big-league bullpen. If he does make it back this year, he would likely pitch in low-leverage spots.

Braves' Darren O'Day: Progressing in throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (forearm) has progressed to playing long toss but has yet to throw off a mound, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

The Braves haven't yet ruled O'Day out for the remainder of the season, though he's not expected to be back until either late August or September. The right-hander has been on the shelf since the start of the 2019 campaign due to a right forearm injury.

June 8, 2019 12:44 AM
Braves' Darren O'Day: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (forearm) was shifted to the 60-day injured list Friday.

This is simply a procedural move for the Braves, who moved O'Day to the 60-day IL to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Dallas Keuchel. O'Day has been on the shelf since March 28 due to right forearm soreness.

May 14, 2019 06:48 PM
Braves' Darren O'Day: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Day (forearm) played catch Tuesday, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

O'Day has been battling forearm soreness since early March. He resumed throwing late in March but was shut down within a week. It remains unclear when he's expected to return.
