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.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Picks up 47th save in pivotal game against Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britton nailed down his 47th save of the year, pitching a clean ninth inning while striking out two in Wednesday's contest against Toronto.

Britton was afforded the save chance after Hyun Soo Kim hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the ninth inning. The Orioles' closer has allowed just four runs all season, and three of those came in the first month of the campaign. Britton is on the verge of completing a perfect season, as he currently sits 47-for-47 in save chances.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Notches 44th save in Friday win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Britton notched his 44th save in Friday's 5-4 victory over the Rays, giving up two hits over a scoreless ninth inning.

The dominant closer was brought in to slam the door after the Orioles rallied in the bottom of the eighth to take a 5-4 lead. Britton got the ninth started in typically seamless fashion, retiring Corey Dickerson and Steven Souza, but then gave up a single to Mikie Mahtook, who tried to score the tying run on an Alexei Ramirez single and was thrown out at home, ending the game. The play at the plate kept Britton's save record at a perfect 44-for-44 on the season, and he now has five saves in six September outings.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Closes door in Beantown to remain perfect
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britton allowed a hit and struck out won while recording a four-out save, his 42nd of the season, Tuesday in Boston.

Tuesday was just another day at the office for Britton, who remained perfect through 61 appearances this season. Baltimore's closer is a legitimate AL Cy Young candidate, owning a ridiculous 0.62 ERA and 0.84 WHIP while striking out 65 batters in 58.1 innings. Britton has allowed just one earned run over his last 50 appearances and his 42 straight saves to start the season ranks third in MLB history.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Notches 41st save Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Britton allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one in a shutout ninth inning during Sunday's win over the Tigers to pick up his 41st save of the season.

It's been almost a full calendar year since Britton blew his last save, and he now sports an eye-popping 0.63 ERA and 0.84 WHIP on the season to go along with a 64:18 K:BB in 57 innings. Closers are rarely deserving of a Cy Young award, but the 28-year-old is making a strong case to be an exception to that rule.
