Zach Britton content with staying in bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2014) Orioles pitcher Zach Britton's days as a starter appear to be over as he has adjusted well to the closer's role for Baltimore. Since recording his first save May 15, the left-hander is 15 for 17 in save chances and has a 1.67 ERA in his last 25 outings.

"I'm definitely settling into the role," he told MASNsports.com. "I haven't really thought much about starting. As the season started to get going, I was just more embracing coming out of the bullpen.

"If that's something they want to revisit this offseason, I guess we'll sit down and talk about it, but I'm not going to go out and tell them I want to do this or that. I just want to pitch and be successful, whatever role that is. And like I've said, they get paid to make those decisions and determine where they see that I fit on this team. And now, it's in the bullpen. Until something changes or I'm told otherwise, that's what I'm going to focus on.

"I don't want to worry about, 'I want to do this or that.' I think it makes it a lot easier to just embrace where you're at and go out there and perform."
