Player Notes
Zach Britton told reporters Thursday morning that his oblique is improving.

Advice: Britton felt some discomfort on his side after throwing a bullpen session Monday in Orioles camp and he has been sitting out of workouts since. It's just a precautionary measure here in late February. The stud closer should be all caught up by the opening of the 2017 regular season.

Zach Britton said Wednesday morning that he's not worried about his oblique.

Advice: Britton threw a bullpen session on Monday and began feeling symptoms Tuesday, so the Orioles decided to keep him out of an upcoming intrasquad game. The O's closer is confident he'd be pitching if it was the regular season, so it doesn't sound like a major concern, but they'll handle him with care in the next couple of days.

Zach Britton won't pitch in Wednesday's intrasquad game due to symptoms of a potential oblique injury.

Advice: This type of injury can sideline players for several weeks, so it's understandable that the Orioles don't want to take any chances with their dominant closer. We should know more on his status in the next day or two.
