Entering the MLB Winter Meetings, the Orioles seem poised to keep third baseman Manny Machado for his final season - before he becomes eligible for free agency - and closer Zach Britton, who was close to being traded last July.

This most recent injury hurts the Orioles on two fronts: not only have they lost their elite closer for a good portion of the 2018 season but this also prevents them from potentially trading Britton this offseason. If a team was looking to trade for a closer, he's the man now.

Perhaps Britton's injury changes matters.
Britton, 29, looks unlikely to see the mound until the second half of the season. It's entirely possible this injury helps push them more toward a massive rebuild, because.
