2016 Orioles preview: Darren O’Day

first_imgWith Opening Day less than three weeks away, we’ll take a look at a member of the 2016 Orioles every day as they try to return to the playoffs for the third time in five years this season.March 1 – Adam Jones March 2 – Chris Tillman March 3 – Jonathan Schoop March 4 – Brad Brach March 5 – Nolan Reimold March 6 – Yovani Gallardo March 7 – Matt Wieters March 8 – T.J. McFarland March 9 – Dariel Alvarez March 10 – Brian Matusz March 11 – J.J. Hardy March 12 – Mychal Givens March 13 – Ryan Flaherty March 14 – Ubaldo Jimenez March 15 – Mark TrumboRP Darren O’DayAge: 33Contract status: Under contract through the 2019 season2015 stats: 6-2, 6 saves, 1.52 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 11.3 K/IP, 1.9 BB/IP, 5 HR, 65 1/3 inningsWhy to be impressed: The 2015 All-Star selection posted career bests in ERA, strikeout rate, and walk rate last year and has pitched 62 or more innings in each of his four seasons in Baltimore. Making it more impressive was the fact that opponents posted a .278 batting average on balls in play, which is higher than his .256 career mark and indicates his career year came without the benefit of much luck.Why to be concerned: It’s remarkable that O’Day set a career high in strikeouts at age 32, so one would reasonably expect his strikeout rate to regress closer to the 9.2 per nine innings he averaged from 2012-2014. The Orioles made a four-year, $31 million commitment to O’Day, but he’s approaching his mid-30s and manager Buck Showalter may need to monitor his workload a bit more moving forward.2016 outlook: Every year you wonder if O’Day can continue to be so dominant and he only managed to get better in his contract season that resulted in a big payday this winter. It would be a lot to ask the right-hander to be as superb as he was in 2015, but there’s little reason to think he won’t continue to be the backbone of the Baltimore bullpen like he has been for the last four years.2016 not-so-scientific projections: 5-3, 5 saves, 1.93 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 9.6 K/IP, 2.3 BB/IP, 6 HR, 64 innings,RP Darren O’DayAge: 33Contract status: Under contract through the 2019 season2015 stats: 6-2, 6 saves, 1.52 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 11.3 K/IP, 1.9 BB/IP, 5 HR, 65 1/3 inningsWhy to be impressed: The 2015 All-Star selection posted career bests in ERA, strikeout rate, and walk rate last year and has pitched 62 or more innings in each of his four seasons in Baltimore.
