Britton is one of the top relievers on the free-agent market, with Craig Kimbrel leading the pack and Adam Ottavino, David Robertson, Andrew Miller, and Jeurys Familia also available. Despite it being robust, the relief market has failed to materialize early in the offseason, with Jesse Chavez the sole bullpen piece to land a new deal.
Britton, 30, missed most of the first half of 2018 while recovering from a ruptured Achilles. Once healthy, the Baltimore Orioles traded the left-hander to the New York Yankees. Between the two clubs, Britton posted a 3.10 ERA and 4.22 FIP over 40 2/3 innings.
