Zach Britton the Orioles reliever to own
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Those who speculated Zach Britton would take over for Tommy Hunter as Orioles closer appeared to be dead on Thursday night, when he pitched a perfect ninth inning for his first career save.

I now consider myself among them.

Darren O'Day, my horse in this race, actually entered the game in the sixth inning and pitched the seventh as well, showing precisely the versatility that most likely compelled manager Buck Showalter to look elsewhere.

And Britton could be fine. The failed starting pitcher prospect is unproven as a reliever and not much of a bat-misser, but he throws hard and is an extreme ground ball pitcher, meaning he'll at least keep the ball in the yard. So far, he's done much more than that, compiling a 0.81 ERA and 0.85 WHIP in 17 appearances.

My gut tells me it's his job until he falters, which means I'd be willing to cut Tommy Hunter for him if it came to that. Maybe he will falter and, by that point, Hunter will have redeemed himself, but given Hunter's lack of track record as a closer, it's probably not a Jim Johnson or Ernesto Frieri situation where the Orioles are looking to get him back in the role.

Zach Britton blows save on unearned run Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Orioles closer Zach Britton took a blown save Sunday, allowing an unearned run on one hit and one walk in his team's 7-5, 11-inning win over the Rays.

Britton watched the first runner of the ninth inning reach base on a throwing error by the shortstop, and that runner would eventually come around to score the game-tying run. He hasn't given up an earned run since Aug. 13. Britton owns a 1.82 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 57:19 K:BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings.
