BALTIMORE (AP) -- All-Star reliever Darren O'Day and the Baltimore Orioles have completed a $31 million, four-year contract.

The Orioles announced Monday that the 33-year-old free agent had re-signed with the team. He will make $6 million next year, $7 million in 2017 and $9 million the following two seasons. There will be $1 million deferred each year.

O'Day was an All-Star last season when he went 6-2 with six saves and a 1.52 ERA in 68 games. The submarining right-hander struck out a career-high 82 in 65 1-3 innings.

O'Day is 31-13 with 14 saves and a 2.31 ERA in 459 games in an eight-year career with the Angels, Mets, the Rangers and Orioles. He joined Baltimore in 2012.

Infielder Rey Navarro was designated for assignment. He hit .276 in 10 games for Baltimore last season.
