The Orioles and Darren O’Day have mutual interest in a new contract
Darren O’Day has enjoyed another excellent season out of the Orioles’ bullpen and Rich Dubroff of CSNMA.com reports that there’s mutual interest in a new contract.
O’Day, who has a 1.54 ERA this season, is set to become a free agent for the first time in his career. The 32-year-old said the Orioles have only sent out some “feelers” at this point, so no substantial talks have taken place.
With Zach Britton sidelined due to a lat injury, O’Day has converted four saves over the past two weeks. It’s possible that someone could give him a shot as a closer. Either way, with a 1.92 ERA over the past four seasons, he figures to do very well on the open market.
