Pretty sure this is a no..........since they already tendered him for 2018.  They still have to go through arbitration though, which seems like it would be strongly affected by this.

I don't think it will affect him much in arbitration.  If Boras puts out a number slightly more than 2017, he won't lose.

One of the writers said at least six but probably longer. Eight months or the whole season.  We shall see. If the orioles thought the whole year they would probably cut him.

Even if he does come back in July or August, how good will he actually be? I feel like for Zach to get back to true form and have that sinker diving, it's going to take him a while.

They will be in last place by June

No reason to rush him back

With his shoulder issues do you really want him pitching with any lower body issues

2016 was his career year and he will never have another like it.

Although we get to pay for it and nothing else for 2017 and now 2018.

Well, I guess Gregg Olson’s Orioles career save record is safe.   He’s at 160, Britton’s at 135 and might have passed him this year if this hadn’t come along.    

By the way, Mariano Rivera had more saves (652) than the top five Orioles combined.

From what I read on mlbtraderumors if they release him they only have to pay him for 31 days I think. They made it sound like it could take 2 years to recover from.

I thought under the players association contract, you could not release injured players unless you reach a settlement deal with them??????
