|Orioles | Brad Brach, Mychal Givens could close|

Updating a previous report, if Baltimore Orioles RP Zach Britton (ankle) misses an extended amount of time due to a sprained left ankle, RPs Brad Brach and Mychal Givens appear to be the most likely candidates to receive save opportunities. P Dylan Bundy is considered a long-shot to be used in a ninth-inning role because of his low strikeout totals, as well as the fact that the team may decide to stretch him out so that he can be used as a starter later this year.
Fantasy Tip: At this point, Britton is considered day-to-day and he is looking to avoid his first stint on the disabled list since 2012. He is one of the top closers in the game and should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. Brach appears to have an edge over Givens because of his extensive closing experience as a minor leaguer in the San Diego Padres' organization, while Givens has struggled mightily versus left-handed batters this year. Lefties are hitting .533 against Givens in 2016, while righties are batting just .182. Brach and Givens are worth adding in AL-only fantasy leagues, as well as in any other format if you're desperate for saves.

|Orioles | Baltimore unwilling to part with prospects|

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton is of interest to the Baltimore Orioles, but the Orioles are hesitant to part with SP Kevin Gausman, RP Mychal Givens or 2B Jonathan Schoop in any deal for a veteran bat.
Fantasy Tip: A move to Baltimore would surely make Upton ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) more valuable to his fantasy owners, although he oddly has better hitting splits at pitcher-friendly Petco Park in 2015.
