Orioles | Zach Britton racking up saves

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 06:38:05 -0700

Baltimore Orioles RP Zach Britton registered his fourth save of the season in Baltimore's 4-1 win over the Boston Red Sox Saturday, April 18. It was Britton's third save in consecutive games, and his two strikeouts upped total to 10 over 6 1/3 innings and his K/9 to 14.2 for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Britton has now converted 41 of 43 save opportunities since taking over the closer role last year, and the former starter appears to have the pitch arsenal and mindset to dominate the ninth inning. It is especially encouraging to see his strikeouts adding up in bunches. Britton emerging as a high-end closer -- and potentially even breaking into the top-tier -- this season isn't out of the question.

Orioles | Zach Britton to be rested?

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 14:49:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles RP Zach Britton may be rested Wednesday, April 8, according to manager Buck Showalter. Britton has pitched in each of the team's first two games of the season the past two days.

Fantasy Tip: If Britton is rested in a save situation against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday night, Tommy Hunter would likely be the replacement for a save opportunity. Hunter isn't a bad arm to own in very deep AL-only leagues, but he should remain on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
