    PressBoxOnline: Move to Bullpen Revitalizes Zach Britton

    Paul Folk.

    Britton, once one of the Birds' top pitching prospects, made a career-high 28 starts during a promising rookie campaign in 2011. This year, Britton was a bad camp away from his Orioles career potentially coming to an end -- and from joining the likes of Jake Arrieta, Hayden Penn, Adam Loewen and Matt Riley on the ignominious list of failed Orioles pitching prospects from recent years.

    Britton's move to closer precipitated Troy Patton's use as relief ace today. Tommy Hunter -1 Zach Britton -1

    Which is more vital? A closer or a middle reliever for a team trailing by 2 runs.
