Nats, Dodgers reportedly frontrunners for O'Day

The Nationals and Dodgers appear to be the most likely landing spots for free-agent reliever Darren O'Day, according to ESPN.

O'Day has garnered attention from multiple suiters since becoming a free agent, but ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports the Nats and Dodgers are the top two teams in the running for the 33-year-old right-hander.

The Braves also could be a contender for O'Day, who lives in the Atlanta area. Meanwhile, the Nationals could have an edge because O'Day's wife is a TV reporter in Washington, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

O'Day, who posted a 1.52 ERA in 68 appearances last season, is reportedly seeking a four-year contract. He has a 2.31 ERA in eight seasons with the Angels, Mets, Rangers and Orioles.
