The Orioles final un-signed player, relief pitcher Darren O'Day, signed a two-year deal with an option for 2015 yesterday. O'Day wouldn't have been a free agent until 2014 anyway, so the deal will buy out his remaining arbitration year and give the team an option for 2015, should O'Day continue to be as awesome as he was in 2012.
According to the article in the Baltimore Sun, O'Day will make $2.2M in 2013 and $3.2M in 2014. The club option for 2015 is $4.25M with a $400K buyout.
O'Day was, of course, one of the key pieces in the bullpen in 2012. While Jim Johnson gets a lot of the credit as the team's closer, O'Day was just as filthy. Both players put up a 1.4 fWAR. O'Day put up a K/BB of 4.93 in 69 games with a 2.28 ERA. He also allowed just 6 of his 43 inherited runners score, which means he spent a lot of the season saving the day.
