Yankees place Darren O’Day on 10-day IL, recall Michael King

This isn’t the news anyone wants to wake up to. Especially not after an extremely satisfying win last night. Darren O’Day, a key offseason acquisition to the team’s bullpen who’s pitched well, has a rotator cuff strain and is on the injured list. Michael King is back to replace him on the roster.

O’Day has a 3.00 ERA in 9 innings this season, and up until his last two appearances, had been extremely effective. He gave up a run in each of his last two appearances, which perhaps portended something wasn’t quite right. Hopefully this isn’t anything too serious for the 38 year-old righty, but rotator cuff injuries are definitely concerning.

King’s back, and deservedly so. He’s been the tough luck odd man out on the Scranton shuttle a few times already this season in spite of tossing 11 scoreless frames thus far.

We’ll likely have more information on O’Day’s prognosis once Aaron Boone speaks to the media prior to this afternoon’s game.

    Uggh. Hopefully all well after some rest. He didn’t look right the other night, so I did have a quick thought that maybe he was injured. I’m old enough to remember when the words “rotator cuff” and “pitcher” in the same sentence would lead to nothing good, although that seems to be less the case these days.
