The last time Britton was healthy for a whole season was when he finished fourth in Cy Young voting with a 0.54 ERA and a ​MLB-best 47 saves.

This move would provide some help to a Phillies bullpen that has been just average when it comes to bullpen ERA and batting average against. 

If the Phillies are able to pull this deal off, it would not only help them, but keep Britton out of the hands of countless ​other teams that they could very well end up facing in the playoffs.
