What's next for Britton? Orioles' options with injured closer are limited

Duquette indicated that the Orioles wouldn't offer a top-tier pitcher a contract of four or five years, which is want right-handers Alex Cobb and Lance Lynn, two pitchers the team reportedly coveted, are seeking.

Britton can become a free agent after next season, which made him a strong trade candidate before the injury. Now, they face the prospect of releasing Britton, or hoping that he can perform well after his return from injury.

Britton's injury will require surgery on Thursday in California to be performed by Dr. Ken Jung. Britton's estimated recovery time is six months.

Drafted by the Orioles in the third round with the 85th overall pick of the 2006 June Amateur Draft, Britton would wait five years before finally making his Major League Baseball debut. With rumors already swirling about a potential Manny Machado trade, which could start an all-out rebuild for the organization, this puts the Orioles in a very hard position.
