Darren O'Day, in my opinion, was nothing special, but at least he was a ground ball specialist, much like Chad Bradford or Joe Smith.
Once you cut Sanchez to make room for him he immediately gained the value of Duaner, as well as his own.
Nelson Figueroa is a decent spot starter and, more than likely, better suited as a long reliever, by the third trip through the line-up the opposition figured him out. ]

The Angels are looking for any pitching help they can find, and don't be surprised if they pick up a pitcher or two who recently was designated for assignment. Among the possibilities: Nationals righty Steven Shell and lefty Wil Ledezma, Mets righties Darren O'Day and Nelson Figueroa and Twins righty Philip Humber. source Fox Sports
