Will the Orioles closer still be in Baltimore after the July 31 trade deadline? Could he be dealt to the Dodgers or an AL East rival? Our baseball experts discuss.
Buster Olney talks to MASN's Roch Kubatko about the Orioles' strategy as the deadline approaches, what they may do with Zach Britton and more.
If he's healthy, Baltimore's closer could transform bullpens, which is why the Orioles should have some decent offers from a handful of contenders.
Jonathan Schoop and Adam Jones both homered and drove in three runs, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat Cole Hamels and the Texas Rangers 9-7 on Thursday night to complete a four-game sweep.
Kevin Gausman pitched six innings of four-hit ball, Adam Jones homered and scored three runs and the Baltimore Orioles beat the faltering Texas Rangers 10-2 on Wednesday night.
With the chance to create one of baseball's most dominant bullpens, the Dodgers are interested in Zach Britton, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick confirms.
Chris Davis homered in a six-run first inning, added a grand slam in the fourth and finished with a career-high six RBIs to help the Baltimore Orioles breeze past the Texas Rangers 12-1 on Tuesday night.
Owner Peter Angelos reportedly gave GM Dan Duquette the go-ahead to deal top relievers, which includes Zach Britton, Darren O'Day and Brad Brach.

The closer could have the same October impact -- and could even form a two-headed bullpen monster in L.A. -- but only if the Orioles let him go.

Giants to sign Baltimore's unsigned fourth-round pick Jack Conlon (first reported by Ken Rosenthal). Plus FB, above avg breaking ball, some violence in the delivery. He'd been committed to Texas A&M. He was a fourth-round talent, making this a solid add for San Francisco.
Baltimore has a relatively easy August on tap, but a brutal September that will happen beyond the period at which it can really expect to make a significant addition to help itself.
