Orioles claim Darren O'Day on waivers
O'Day was limited to 16 appearances for the Rangers in 2011 because of injuries and was 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA. He started the season with the Rangers but was placed on the 60-day disabled list in late April after undergoing surgery to repair a partial tear of the labrum in his left hip. He returned to the DL in late August with right shoulder inflammation.
The 29-year-old O'Day played for the Los Angeles Angels and New York Mets before coming to Texas, which claimed him on waivers in April 2009. He was 2-1 with a 1.94 ERA the rest of that season and followed with 6-3 mark and 2.03 ERA in 72 appearances in 2010.
