Former Weatherford High School pitcher Zach Britton has signed a one-year, $3.2 million contract with the Baltimore Orioles.
The deal also includes up to $500,000 in performance and award bonuses.
Britton, who turned 27 last month, converted 37 of 41 save opportunities in his first season as closer, posting a 3-2 record and 1.65 ERA.
He entered last spring fighting for a roster spot, made the club as a reliever and took over the closer role in May.
Britton made $521,500 last season.
