The other day "no tests scheduled", today "MRI Friday, was planned who time."  Huh?  Smells like a nice big pile of bull**** to me.  Hopefully everything checks out.

crossing my fingers and we still haven't heard anything.  I don't know if that's good or bad.

Think we'll hear today, or most likely tomorrow?

 

We'll very likely hear today during Buck's pregame press discussion in his office.

The fact that he said it's near his wrist and not his elbow makes me think there's nothing to worry about. They give MRIs out like lollipops these days.

I could only find this:  

The Orioles proceeded with a precautionary MRI on closer Zach Britton’s elbow and forearm area — the team was still awaiting results of the tests before Friday’s game — but Showalter said Britton told him he’s ready to resume throwing.

“He feels good,” Showalter said. ‘He was ready to pitch, like yesterday in the dugout, he said, ‘I’m ready to throw.’ … He was champing at the bit yesterday. He said, ‘I feel good. I’m ready to go.’ ”

Sadly, this isn't news as players always think they're ready to go. Looking like we'll have to wait until tomorrow for definitive word.

Baltimore MRI's are the most complex in the industry.  Doubt we hear anything until after the game or in morning.

The fact that he says he's not feeling any discomfort and is fine is good news.

Buck just said in the postgame that Zach Britton's elbow is fine.

My FAAB runs tonight and with 425 of my 500 left, as a Briton owner I just do not know how much to bid on Brach, I hate this feeling!!

Zach Britton (forearm) said he was happy with his MRI results from Friday.

The MRI ruled out any structural damage. Britton wants to begin throwing again but he won't be cleared until he meets with a hand specialist on Monday. Interim closer Brad Brach has yet to allow a run this year, so the Orioles can afford to take their time with Britton.

Zach Britton (forearm) played catch from 90 feet and threw some pitches off flat ground on Monday.

It was his first time throwing since an MRI on Friday ruled out structural damage. He said his arm felt good Monday, but more should be known about the next step after he talks to Buck Showalter and visits with a hand specialist. Brad Brach has been filling in at closer. Apr 24 - 3:40 PM

 

Zach Britton (forearm) will throw a full bullpen session on Wednesday.

That's assuming he feels fine Tuesday following Monday's flat-ground session. The Orioles are saying Britton will be re-evaluated after Wednesday's bullpen session but they didn't indicate whether a short rehab assignment might be the next step or if he might just be activated. We'll know more in a few days.

It wouldn't surprise me if Britton is pitching sooner than later.

Rough rehab outing so probably looking at one more rehab and maybe active next week. Just hope his arm is feeling okay.
