O's closer Zach Britton will not let 2014 success change his approach
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Orioles reliever Zach Britton said his success as a full-time closer in 2014 will not change the way he prepares for the 2015 season, according to The Baltimore Sun. After taking over the closer's role in May, Britton went on to finish the season with 37 saves in 41 chances.

“I try not to treat it like that,” he said. “I feel like you’ve got to go in with the same mindset I had last year. I think it worked out pretty good, so I’ve got to just take that same mindset, not feel like I’m entitled or have anything in the bag or anything. That’s when you maybe get off to a slow start during the season. I don’t want that to happen, I want to be ready to go in the spring, have a good spring. I think that’s just being competitive. I want to have a good spring, I don’t want to have to ease my way in. that’s kind of the mindset I’ve had going into this year.”

Britton added he is particularly motivated after he struggled in the postseason. While he did record two saves in the ALDS, he allowed two runs on five hits and five walks in 4 2/3 postseason innings.

“We wanted to go farther than we did, and personally I wanted to be a little better than I was a couple of those last outings in the postseason, but looking back, there’s some positives from each of those outings,” Britton said. “They didn’t end as great as I wanted to, not as good as the regular season, but I learned a lot…as my first year out of the bullpen, not just being the closer but being [in] the bullpen, what I need to do. I’ve talked to (pitching coach) Dave (Wallace) and (bullpen coach) Dom (Chiti) a lot about having a better routine this year and continuing to grow in that role.”

Orioles, Zach Britton avoid arbitration
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Orioles and pitcher Zach Britton have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.2-million deal for 2015, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

Britton also has $300,000 worth of performance bonuses based on games finished, beginning with 45 finished games. The pitcher submitted for $4.2 million in January while the team offered $2.2 million, so Britton's base salary falls right at the midway point between the two sides.

Britton spent his first year exclusively in the bullpen in 2014 and racked up 37 saves in 71 appearances while posting a 1.65 ERA and 62:23 K:BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings.

Report: Orioles won't consider moving Britton into rotation
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Orioles are not considering moving closer Zach Britton into the starting rotation, according to MASNSports.com, which is citing the team's six candidates for five spots and his brilliance out of the bullpen in 2014.

Britton, who was a starter until last season, posted a 3-2 record with 37 saves in 41 chances after assuming his role in mid-May. He was among three American League closers with 30 saves or more and a save percentage of 90 percent or better.

He was reaching nearly 100 miles an hour on his fastball, which has some calling for his return to the rotation next year.
