Achilles injuries can be career-enders which, naturally, has many Orioles fans and executives anxious about the exceptional left-hander. And so much for what was likely to be one of the team's top trade chips in July, should the first couple months go the way many of us fear they will.
An extended absence for the two-time closer could prompt the Orioles to redouble their efforts to trade star Manny Machado, as Baltimore's hopes of contending with the Yankees and Red Sox now look even more remote. That is, of course, assuming that the achilles injury fully heals and that Britton is in shape to return.
Britton is entering his final year of four years of arbitration eligibility as a Super Two qualifier, and before his injury, he was projected to make $12.2 million through the process. In that year, Britton would pitch an incredible 0.54 ERA with 74 strikeouts and 47 saves in 67 innings pitched.
The news about Britton is about the worst thing possible for the Orioles.
In 2016, Britton led the league with 47 saves and had a.54 ERA. But DRA did not like Britton in 2017 (5.03).
If they feel Britton, who turns 30 on Friday, is a big part of their future, the Orioles could attempt to engage him in extension talks next month, offering to buy out this season in an effort to keep him for the long haul.
Thus, it would behoove the Orioles to begin trading off their other valuable assets, such as Zach Britton and Brad Brach, two strong relievers that would fetch a good return on the trade market, such as a starting pitcher to revamp the Orioles rotation. Regardless, the injury to Zach Britton just delivered another body blow to an already downtrodden Orioles fanbase.
