Zackary Grant Britton known professionally as Zack Britton until February 2019, is an American professional baseball pitcher for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Baltimore Orioles.
At the plate, Britton showed off his power during his first taste of interleague action. Five hits in eight at-bats set a new record for the most hits by a pitcher in the American League in 2011.
In the fourth inning of an 8–4 loss to the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park on June 17, he drove in his first major league run with a double off Jason Marquis.
At Turner Field on July 3, he blasted his first major league home run against Brandon Beachy in a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves. On July 9, the Bowie Baysox sent an unexpected call-up to Britton. Before losing six of his next seven matches, he was 5–1.
There was conjecture that the Orioles made the move in order to prolong his eligibility for free agency by a season by not allowing him to play a full season in the majors.
His rookie season ended with a 4.61 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and an 11-11 record in 28 appearances (all starts).
