Zack Britton has $14 million option for 2022 picked up by the Yankees

The Yankees exercised Zack Britton’s $14 million club option for 2022.

Fantasy Impact

Britton declined the option to opt out of his 2021 deal. The Yankees committed to Britton for two-years at total of $27 million. The left-hander converted eight saves while posting a 1.91 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 16 strikeouts over 19 1/3 innings in 2020. Britton will continue to be one of the Yankees top setup man for the next two seasons.

Zack Britton (hamstring) activated from the 10-day IL

Zack Britton has been activated from the 10-day IL after missing a little over a week and a half with a left hamstring strain.

Fantasy Impact

Britton will return to a setup role for the Yanks and should be added in all mixed league formats. He's especially valuable in leagues that count holds but could be in line for saves if Aroldis Chapman continues to struggle.

Zack Britton is set to throw a bullpen on Sunday

Zack Britton (hamstring) tossed a bullpen Friday and is set to throw another Sunday before the team makes any final decisions about activating him, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

Fantasy Impact

After the bullpen on Sunday expect the Yankees to make a decision about activating Britton. The veteran reliever should move into a setup role when he returns and will be worth owning in leagues that count holds.

Zack Britton (hamstring) plays catch Friday

Yankees manager Aaron Boone says Zack Britton (hamstring) played catch and did some running on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Boone added that he expects Britton's IL stint to be a short one. He has been pitching very well this year but likely won't get many more save chances now that Aroldis Chapman is back.

Zack Britton (hamstring) placed on injured list

The Yankees placed Zack Britton on the 10-day IL with a hamstring strain.

Fantasy Impact

Britton suffered the hamstring train during his appearance on Wednesday night and will likely be out for a couple of weeks. Aroldis Chapman is back from the COVID-19 IL and will be the Yankees' closer from here on out.
