2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: ZACH BRITTON ON VERGE OF HEADING TO YANKEES

Another day and another former All-Star closer is on the move as rampant reports late Tuesday indicate the New York Yankees will acquire Baltimore Orioles stopper to boost their bullpen for the stretch run.  While Britton has pitched a notch or two below his dominance of 2015 and 2016, he has been sharp of late in tossing scoreless innings in 9 of his last 10 appearances; while also lowering his ERA to 3.45.  The strikeouts have really taken a dive for Britton since 2016 which has taken some of the shine off his game but he will still be a big addition to a Yankees bullpen that also contains setup aces David Robertson, Chad Green, Dellin Betances, and closer Aroldis Chapman.  In terms of fantasy baseball, Britton will lose most of his value though since saves won't be part of the equation anymore and Brad Brach should take his place in Baltimore which is not an overly exciting proposition either.
