"He's probably one of, if not the, best relievers in the game, so anytime you have a piece like that missing, it definitely hurts," said interim closer Brad Brach, who has converted 15 of 19 save opportunities in Britton's absence. "Having him back is going to be huge, and I just think everybody knows that when he gets back we can have the team back to full strength. It can only help us. I think it's one of those things where we've kind of kept our head above water here. And if we can get on a little bit of a roll, having Zach back will definitely help us."
