The Orioles could receive a boost to their bullpen soon with the return of Zach Britton, who missed the start of the season recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon.
Britton could be activated as early as Wednesday when Baltimore faces the Red Sox at home. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday Britton dominated on his rehab assignment, but the team hasn’t been tempted to speed up his return timetable.
If everything goes well, Zach will throw back-to-back on Sunday and Monday, Showalter said Thursday, via MLB.com. The earliest you could see him activated here is Wednesday. We have an off-day on Thursday; could be Friday. I’m just hoping the back-to-backs go well and he feels good.
I ask him questions all the time, I’m always in his ear, I try to be as professional as possible, he said.
Trubisky discussed the transition on Wednesday’s PFT Live from Mentor, Ohio, where he’s hosting a four-day youth football camp.

Speculation is Porter could fall to No. 9 because of his back issues that flared up last week and initially caused cancellation of his workout. (It was later held as scheduled.)
A source told The Post that Porter suffered from hip spasms. There was a report stating he had trouble getting out of bed — which he firmly denied Monday on CBS Radio.
My agent was very cautious, [it was] a little sore, nothing that serious, Porter said. There’s no risk of reinjury. There’s no risk as much people [as] are making it seem.
The ball was still floating in the air as Davis Webb announced the fate of the pass before it reached its intended destination.
That’s six! Webb exclaimed.
