The Braves re-signed Darren O'Day to a one-year, $2.25 million contract.
The contract has a $3.5 million club option for 2021. The 37-year-old reliever pitched in just eight games this past season but was effective, posting a 1.69 ERA.
Darren O'Day has been traded to the Braves along with teammate Kevin Gausman ahead of the trade deadline Tuesday. The Braves will send minor league prospects RHP Evan Phillips, INF Jean Carlos Encarnación, C Brett Cumberland, LHP Bruce Zimmerman and international signing slots over to Baltimore in exchange.
Darren O'Day is out for the 2018 season as he had surgery to repair a strained hamstring last month. He is under contract for the 2019 season for $9 million.
Darren O'Day (hamstring) will have surgery on his left hamstring and will miss the rest of the 2018 season, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.
O'Day landed on the disabled list earlier last week and it turns out the injury was worse than thought as the veteran reliever needed surgery. Fantasy owners can drop O'Day in all leagues.
Darren O'Day was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a hamstring injury, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.
O'Day has been battling injuries all season and has already had a trip to the DL with an elbow issue. The 35-year-old reliever is not a must-own player and fantasy owners should find another relieving option for their team.
Darren O'Day was unavailable to pitch Tuesday against the Nationals due to a hamstring injury, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.
O'Day suffered the injury on Friday and has not been able to pitch since. The hamstring issue is not considered serious and O'Day should be considered day to day for now.
