No offers regarding Britton have been presented to O's ownership for approval, suggesting nothing is imminent, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com writes. Kubatko adds that a source said a deal for Britton would be considered if it provided "a substantial improvement to the club."
Britton, 29, has a 2.65 ERA in 16 outings this season. The left-hander ranked fourth in the AL Cy Young vote last season after converting all 47 of his save chances and posting a 0.54 ERA. Britton has one more year of arbitration remaining before becoming a free agent at the end of next season.
