Nationals, Dodgers “at top of the Darren O’Day pack”

1 Comment

ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reported last week that the Dodgers are in “big time” pursuit of free agent reliever Darren O'Day. And now Crasnick adds the Nationals to the list of enthusiastic suitors.

Crasnick writes Sunday that Washington — in bad need of a bullpen revamp — has joined Los Angeles “at the top of the Darren O’Day pack.”

The 33-year-old right-hander had a 1.52 ERA and 82/14 K/BB ratio in 65 1/3 innings this past season for the Orioles. He boasts a 1.92 ERA over his last 263 innings dating back to 2012.

FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal says O’Day is seeking a four-year contract in the $28-36 million range.
