Britton tossed two scoreless innings in Sunday's spring training game and manager Buck Showalter told MASN Sports he is impressed with Britton. "Zach was real good," Showalter said. "When a quality hitter swings and misses the sinker, that's a pretty good sinker, especially at 93-95 (mph). He's been sharp. I'm excited with how he's doing. Hopefully, he's following the same path as another guy (Chris Tillman) who was out of options last spring."
Jimenez threw two perfect innings with three strikeouts in his spring training debut Friday. "I feel good, but I know I'm not 100 percent like most of the pitchers are right now," Jimenez told MASN Sports. "They're probably a week ahead of me, but I feel fine. I'm getting there. I've been doing some routines that they want me to do in order to get ready for the season, and that's what I'm doing."
