This is a big step for the injured reliever, as it marks the first time he's been able to throw since undergoing surgery nine weeks ago. The throwing session was originally scheduled for last week, but things got pushed back for an unknown reason. It's unclear how this impacts his return timetable, but as of now he's still on track to return in late May or early June.

This season, Britton is focused on a return to form, and staying healthy when he does rejoin the club.
