#Yankees’ Zack Britton exits after wild pitch in third game back

“Yankees’ Zack Britton exits after wild pitch in third game back”

Zack Britton’s chances of making the playoff roster after undergoing UCL surgery just over a year ago may have come to an end Friday, when the left-hander was removed from his outing in the sixth inning after throwing a wild pitch and a visit from the training staff.

Britton had walked five in just 2/3 of an inning in his two appearances since coming back and then walked the first batter he faced Friday against Baltimore, Gunnar Henderson.

After Britton fell behind the next hitter, pinch-hitter Jesus Aguilar, first baseman Anthony Rizzo and catcher Jose Trevino went to the mound, but two pitches later, Britton threw a ball to the backstop.

Aaron Boone and trainer Tim Lentych came out and after a brief chat, Britton was pulled from the game, replaced by Ron Marinaccio.

Prior to the game, Boone said Britton needed to work on his command, but added the 34-year-old had good arm speed and felt healthy.
