Darren O'Day: .174

Like Givens, Darren O’Day’s delivery makes it tough for righties to pick the ball up out of his hand. But this year, lefties are batting just .174 off him with a .530 OPS, well below his career marks of .230 with a .699 OPS. They’re also striking out more often against him, with his eight strikeouts of lefties in 26 plate appearances giving him a 30.7 percent strikeout rate. His career strikeout rate against lefties is 21.7 percent. With the Orioles unsettled when it comes to a lefty specialist, the fact that O’Day and Brad Brach are good against lefties makes that less of a pressing need. (Source: Fangraphs)
