Brewers activate Eric Thames; Orioles get Zach Britton back from DL

The Orioles activated closer Zach Britton from the disabled list Monday to make his season debut after undergoing right Achilles surgery.

Britton, 30, has battled injuries the last two years, but he recorded 120 saves from 2014-2016. He has emerged as a potential trade piece this summer with the Orioles already out of the playoff hunt.

The Brewers also received a boost Monday when they activated slugger Eric Thames from the 10-day disabled list. Thames missed the last seven weeks with a torn ligament in his left thumb, but he went 6 for 14 with a home run during a brief rehab assignment.

Thames will likely see time at first base and in the outfield upon his return with Jesus Aguilar earning more playing time. Thames is not in the starting lineup Thursday.
