Work in offseason fueling Zach Britton's impressive start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Orioles reliever Zach Britton has been nearly perfect on the mound this season. He is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA through five appearances, allowing just two hits and three walks in 8 1/3 innings.

Britton attributes his success to working hard in the offseason, which included finding a consistent arm slot while pitching out of the stretch.

Britton's velocity is also up this year. He's increased the velocity on his fastball from 91.4 mph in 2013 to 93.9 mph this season.

"I think it's (the increased velocity) the sum of everything," he said, per MASNsports.com. "A cleaner delivery with the help of (pitching coach) Dave (Wallace) and (bullpen coach) Dom (Chiti). Just been throwing out of the stretch. If I stay in the bullpen the whole year I'm sure we'll talk about getting back to the windup eventually.

"It was something they felt, just make it simple for me coming out of the pen. But I think, physically where I am at, adding the weighted balls, cleaning up my delivery, better arm slot. All that stuff equals better and more consistent velocity."

Zach Britton likely to open year in O's bullpen
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday the team still views Zach Britton as a starting pitcher, but hinted he's probably going to open the season as a reliever, per The Baltimore Sun. Showalter said Britton will continue to pitch multiple innings in case "something happens between now and the end of spring that he’s an option for us as a starter also."

Britton has yet to make a start this spring, but he has a 1.29 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in four relief appearances. He's allowed just one run on five hits and two walks in seven innings, while striking out seven.
