Baltimore Orioles: Zach Britton went on the disabled list over the weekend due to a forearm strain. The good news is that at this point in time there is no MRI scheduled. This would seem to indicate that Baltimore does not believe that the injury is serious and he is accompanying the team on its upcoming road trip which is another good sign. Those owners who blew a good portion of their FAAB over the weekend on Brad Brach may be sadly disappointed. The injury could be the reason why Britton has been very hittable in the early going this year. Sure, he hasn’t blown a save or even given up a run, but he does sport a 1.86 WHIP and has given up 10 hits in seven IP. A few weeks off may be just what is needed here.

We all know it’s just a matter of time until the White Sox deal David Robertson. They are rebuilding and players like Jose Quintana, Todd Frazier, and Robertson are on the high-priced clearance rack. The team that has been most associated with a possible trade with Chicago is Washington. They are a World Series contender that is trying to close out games with the likes of Blake Treinen (6.00 ERA), Koda Glover (rookie), and Shawn Kelley (6.75 ERA). The Nats seem to be in a game of chicken with the Sox to see what will happen first. Will the price come down or will they be forced to pay up? The problem with waiting and hoping is that it’s only going to be a matter of time until another team loses a closer and will pay the price the Sox want, and Chicago knows this.
