RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

It has been four years since the Orioles claimed O'Day off waivers from the Rangers, and it has proven to be one of the best recent under-the-radar moves in baseball. Since coming to Baltimore, O'Day has been the best setup man in the game. O'Day pumped up his K/9 to 11.3 in 2015 and has averaged an 88.7% LOB rate since joining the Orioles. He re-signed with Baltimore in December, inking a four-year, $31 million deal, one of the highest-paying reliever contracts in baseball history. With Zach Britton as the closer, O'Day will remain the setup man for 2016.

2015

O’Day’s consistent smothering of right-handed batters has allowed him to continue to deliver year after year of excellent work even as his work against lefties has bounced around some in recent years. He has always been susceptible to the home run against southpaws, but last year they hit just .189 in 106 plate appearances, so a handful of homers didn’t do much damage. Over the last three years, he has accumulated 198 innings of 2.05 ERA and 0.94 WHIP with 201 strikeouts. However, even with a bullpen in flux, he couldn’t really grab hold of the closer role, with limited chances in April and May, but he remains an incredible eighth-inning force. The ratios are enough to intrigue the AL-only leaguers, but the state of the game actually makes his 26.9% strikeout rate somewhat mediocre, and the fact that he’s unlikely to ever grab hold of the ninth-inning job eliminates any reason to hold him in mixed leagues.

2014

O'Day might get lost in Baltimore's slew of relievers, but with 3.6 WAR over the past two years he may be the best of the bunch. The submarine pitcher still does not provide a ton of value in most leagues unless holds are rewarded. O'Day only throws in the mid-80s, but his throwing motion appears to keep batters off balance. As good as O'Day has been, the Orioles do not appear to consider O'Day as a candidate to close. It's possible that their plans could change after Jim Johnson was traded to Oakland at the non-tender deadline in December. O-Day should enter 2014 in his usual setup role and he could get a crack at the ninth inning depending on the other candidates brought in by the front office leading into the season.

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.
