Zach Britton could be back with the Orioles on Sunday, Buck Showalter told the media on Tuesday. Britton will pitch in a minor league game on Friday as per his rehab assignment. Depending on how he feels and if the outing goes well, he could be activated in time to be in Sunday’s bullpen.

The 29-year old was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a strained left forearm. Last year, the closer pitched a mind boggling 0.54 ERA over 67 innings pitched, recording 47 saves. It’s not a huge shocker that the Orioles are ready to get Britton back in Baltimore.
