Orioles' Brad Brach: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brach agreed to a one-year, $5.165 million deal with the Orioles on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

This marks the final offseason as an arbitration-eligible player for Brach, who received a $2.115 million raise from last year. In 2017, Brach posted a 3.18 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with 18 saves in 68 innings as a late-inning reliever that saw time as the closer when Zach Britton was out with a forearm injury. With Britton once again sidelined, this time due to a ruptured Achilles' tendon, Brach could begin the year as the ninth-inning man, although manager Buck Showalter did stress that he hasn't decided if the right-hander will take over the position at this time.

Orioles' Brad Brach: Not guaranteed closer job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that he hasn't decided if Brach will be the Orioles' closer while Zach Britton (Achilles) is on the shelf, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

Showalter said that Brach, Darren O'Day, Mychal Givens and perhaps Richard Bleier can all do the job, but made it clear that Britton will be the closer when he returns, likely in late June. Brach seems like the heavy favorite, as he saved 18 games last season while Britton dealt with a forearm strain. However, it seems that Givens is being groomed to eventually step into the closer's role, so if he were to impress in spring training, particularly against left-handed hitters, he could win the job. Brach should still be drafted in the mid-to-late rounds, but prospective owners need to be aware that he is not a lock to be getting saves over the first couple months of the season.

Orioles' Brad Brach: In line to be interim closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brach will likely serve as Baltimore's closer for the first half of the 2018 season, following the news that Zach Britton suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Brach filled in for Britton during the start of the 2017 season when the left-hander dealt with forearm issues, and wound up earning 18 saves on the year with a 3.18 ERA and 70:26 K:BB over 68 innings. Now it appears as though Britton will be sidelined until at least the end of June, with an expected timetable of around six months until he's fully recovered. As the season approaches, there will undoubtedly be more news on the subject. Mychal Givens would presumably be next in line if anything were to happen to Brach during Britton's absence.

Orioles' Brad Brach: Converts 18th save with Britton sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brach walked one and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 18th save in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Rays.

Brach retired the first two batters, but things got complicated when a walk and a J.J. Hardy error put the tying run on base. He was able to escape by getting Kevin Kiermaier to fly out to left, thus notching his 18th save to go with six blown saves. Brach should continue to serve as the closer with Zach Britton (knee) day-to-day.

Orioles' Brad Brach: Churns out eighth hold Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brach allowed two hits and a walk while recording just two outs, yet still managed to pick up his eighth hold of the year Tuesday in Toronto.

The setup man couldn't get the job done during the eighth inning Tuesday, but closer Zach Britton -- who went on to blow the game in the ninth -- bailed Brach out. Despite the rough outing, the 31-year-old righty still owns a career-best 1.02 WHIP and 17 saves over 61 games this season.
