Orioles claim reliever Darren O’Day off waivers from Rangers

6 Comments

Darren O’Day was a key part of the Rangers’ bullpen in 2010, but he missed most of this season following hip surgery and today the Orioles claimed him off waivers.

Even after coming back from surgery O’Day missed the end of the season with shoulder problems, so he’s certainly a big question mark health-wise.

However, he came into this season with a 2.63 ERA and 130/44 K/BB ratio in 164 career innings and the 29-year-old side-armer is definitely a worthwhile flier for the Orioles to take in the hopes of adding a solid right-handed relief option.

Not a bad pickup for a team that doesn’t even have a general manager.
