2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Yankees were judicious with Britton's usage, pitching him on back-to-back days just seven times while never having him work more than one inning. The approach paid off as the veteran lefty's ERA was again below 2.00, as it was for three straight seasons in his salad days with the Orioles. Britton's extreme groundball tendencies allow him to outpitch his expected ERA by minimizing homers and inducing double plays, despite a high 13.1 BB%. That said, he was also fortunate last season as evidenced by a low .224 BABIP and high 86.8% left-on-base mark. Britton's swinging-strike rate has been trending downward, checking in at 10.7%, its lowest since 2013. Aroldis Chapman remains the closer so Britton will again be one of the primary setup men. At this point, Britton doesn't fan ample batters for mixed leagues. It's a different story in leagues counting holds as Britton posted 29, along with three saves. Read Past Outlooks
