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

Britton (Achilles) agreed to a one-year, $12 million deal with the Orioles on Friday to avoid arbitration, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Britton remains on schedule as he continues to work his way back from a ruptured Achilles' tendon in December, which will likely leave him sidelined for the first three-to-four months of the 2018 season. Last year, the closer registered 15 saves in 38 appearances, posting a 2.89 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over 37.1 innings.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Progressing on schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Buck Showalter said Britton (Achilles) is progressing on schedule, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

Britton is slowly working his way back to full strength after undergoing surgery in December to repair his ruptured Achilles' tendon. While his recovery is going well and he's expected to be with the team for the start of spring training, Britton is still targeting a return sometime in late June or early July. Look for Brad Brach to handle closer duties until Britton returns.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britton's surgery to repair the Achilles' tendon on the landing foot of his delivery "went well," Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

As was previously reported Wednesday when news broke regarding Britton's injury, he will be out a minimum of 4-to-6 months, and is targeting a return to the mound around late June. Although the left-hander believes that he could be cleared prior to that late June timetable -- due to the lack of baserunning and cutting for a pitcher -- the Orioles will be very cautious with their top reliever following his injury-plagued 2017. In his place, Brad Brach will take on the ninth-inning role at the beginning of the season.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Ruptures Achilles; likely out six months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britton suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon while working out in California on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports,

Britton was previously recovering from a knee ailment, and is now expected to miss the first half of the 2018 season following this unfortunate injury. The soon-to-be 30-year-old has been a prominent name throughout the course of the offseason due to his trade value, but it'll be difficult for talks to continue at this juncture. It appears as though surgery is in the cards, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, who received confirmation of the injury from Orioles general manager Dan Duquette. Britton is coming off an injury-plagued season which saw him make just 38 appearances, posting a 2.89 ERA and 1.53 WHIP with 15 saves. Brad Brach is expected to serve as the closer to begin the year.

Orioles' Zach Britton: Expects to stay put in Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britton (knee) said last week that he does not expect to be traded, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

The lefty was limited to 38 appearances this season due to forearm and knee injuries -- he recently received a PRP injection in his knee -- and he wasn't nearly as dominant when on the mound (7.0 K/9, 4.3 BB). Despite the step back, Britton will receive at least as much as he made this season ($11.4 million) in his final year of arbitration, and that fact has naturally led to rumors of the Orioles potentially looking to move on. It sounds like Britton expects to stay put, but the front office in Baltimore will likely have some tempting options.
