Baltimore Orioles SP Zach Britton is a candidate to start Monday, April 29, against the Seattle Mariners.
Fantasy Tip: Poor health has kept Britton off the mound for most of his career. Now that he's healthy, he could work his way into the fifth spot in the rotation, but that's to be determined. Britton induces plenty of ground balls, but he's had trouble with command in the past. Consider him in AL-only leagues, but he'll have to win a job to be worth a look in mixed leagues.
