Former All-Star, Dominant Reliever Throwing Bullpen For Six Interested Teams

It shouldn't be long now before he lands a contract.

Free agent pitcher Zack Britton is throwing a bullpen for six interested MLB teams on Wednesday.

The New York Mets, Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers and the Texas Rangers were all reportedly in attendance.

Britton is one of the best free-agent relievers remaining on the open market. Unfortunately, injuries have limited the left-handed pitcher to just 25 appearances over the last two seasons, and his season last year was cut short due to fatigue in his left shoulder.

Britton's best years came with the Baltimore Orioles where he served as their closer for several years.

From 2014-17, Britton compiled a brilliant 1.61 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, with 244 strikeouts across 246.1 innings of work. He made 242 relief appearances and converted 135 saves. 

He was a two-time All-Star and finished fourth in Cy-Young voting and 11th in MVP voting during that span.

The thirty-five-year-old will likely be looking at a set-up role with whatever team he signs with, but if a team can get even a little bit of the former dominant reliever that Britton used to be, they'd be thrilled.
