Britton to Miss at Least Six Months

Orioles’ closer Zach Britton will miss at least six months due to a serious injury this offseason. The Orioles all-star who was on the disabled list for two months last season due to a left forearm strain, will now be out after rupturing his Achilles tendon while working out. The Orioles were in hopes of trading Britton this season, which now derails their plans to do so. Britton is eligible for free agency at the end of the 2019 season.
