Orioles' Zach Britton: To play catch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britton (oblique) said his side was no longer sore and he is scheduled to play catch on Sunday, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Although there still isn't a timetable set for Britton and his return, the closer indicated he wasn't worried about his oblique ailment and noted he was no longer sore on Sunday. With an extended camp, the Orioles are in no hurry for him to return, and they'll likely take things cautiously looking forward, although he seems to be nearing a return.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Return to mound uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Britton (oblique) continues to feel discomfort in his side, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Britton eased concerns of prospective fantasy owners Wednesday when he said he wasn't worried about his current oblique ailment, but his return to the mound remains uncertain. With a full camp ahead, look for the Orioles to be in no rush to return their shutdown bullpen option to action.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Not concerned about oblique ailment
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Britton said he's not worried about the oblique injury he suffered earlier this week, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The Orioles' star closer offered the fantasy world a boost of confidence that his recent setback is nothing to be concerned with. Britton said he felt his oblique ailment the day after throwing a bullpen -- as opposed to during the throwing session -- which lends itself to more of a soreness issue than a serious problem. The 29-year-old lefty said the ankle injury he dealt with last season felt far worse, and that ailment only shelved him for a few days.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Dealing with oblique issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britton won't pitch in Wednesday's intrasquad game as he's dealing with an oblique injury, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

The Orioles said that they're primarily being cautious with their prized closer, so it doesn't appear that the injury is a serious matter. However, owners will want to monitor his status, as Britton used the 2016 season to establish himself as one of the league's elite closers by converting all 47 of his save opportunities and posting a 0.54 ERA and 0.84 WHIP.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britton agreed to a one-year, $11.4 million contract with the Orioles on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Britton has established himself as one of the premier closers in the game over the past couple years, and now he's being paid like one. The lefty went nearly four months without allowing a run last season, using an unprecedented combination of strikeouts (9.9 K/9) and groundballs (80 percent groundball rate) to keep opposing offenses in check.
