The Orioles haven't committed to a closer, but it's assumed that Tommy Hunter will open the season in that role, according to MASN's Roch Kubatko. That would leave O'Day to serve as the setup man.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Baltimore traded for O'Day just days after the Rangers lost the 2011 series without O'Day on the roster. O'Day responded by returning to his previous form and threw more than a strikeout per inning for the first time in his career. Behind Jim Johnson, O'Day was the most effective pitcher out of the bullpen in the regular season and in the playoffs. During the season O'Day repeatedly found himself pitching in tie ballgames, leading to seven wins. He had a batting average against at just .199 for the season and walked just 5.3 percent of his batters. As far as middle relievers go, O'Day has been one of the best in three of the last four seasons and he figures to play a significant, albeit non-closing role in 2013.

2012

O'Day struggled with a hip injury early in the season, eventually undergoing surgery that kept him sidelined until July. He wasn't nearly as effective as before, allowing seven homers in just 16.2 innings with Texas as he battled shoulder soreness in addition to his hip woes. He was claimed by the Orioles after Texas attempted to remove him from the 40-man roster, and there's reason for some optimism given his two excellent seasons prior to 2011's injury-riddled mess. Watch the early spring results and health reports. The Orioles also lack a clear-cut closer at press time, which could ultimately lead to an opportunity for O'Day if he's healthy.

2011

O'Day had another solid season out of the Texas bullpen, posting a nice 0.887 WHIP and 2.03 ERA in 72 appearances. He's particularly effective against righties, holding them to a .207 batting average against in his career, and will continue as a valuable member of Texas' middle-to-late relief in 2011.

2010

O'Day emerged as an effective reliever after being plucked off waivers early in the season. He had three full months of sub-1.70 ERAs and he was particularly effective against righties (40 innings, 25 hits, 34:14 K:BB and no homers allowed). Those leagues that count holds as a scoring category should pay extra attention to O'Day, as he emerged as the Rangers' primary seventh-inning reliever, and could take on a larger role if Neftali Feliz moves back into the rotation.
