RP - NYY
The Yankees and free agent RHP Darren O'Day have come to an agreement on a one-year, $2.5 million contract.
Jon Heyman of MLB Network notes there's a dual option for 2022 as well. O'Day posted a pristine 1.10 ERA in 19 appearances for the Braves last season, and he'll help set up Aroldis Chapman in 2021. New York recently traded Adam Ottavino to the Red Sox, which cleared the opening for O'Day.
The Braves declined their $3.5 million 2021 option for RHP Darren O'Day.
Instead, Atlanta will pay a $500,000 buyout. The 38-year-old was fantastic in 19 appearances this year, posting a 1.10 ERA with a 0.80 WHIP. He should generate some moderate interest on the free agent market.
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.
