Michael Morse isn’t the only big leaguer trying to get healthy via platelet-rich plasma treatment this week, as Orioles left-hander Zach Britton also underwent the procedure in an attempt to avoid shoulder surgery.
Dr. James Andrews recommended the new and somewhat controversial treatment for Britton, who’s struggled with shoulder inflammation dating back to August of last season.
Britton is expected to meet again with Dr. Andrews next month, so he’ll definitely begin the season on the disabled list and is no sure thing to rejoin the Orioles’ rotation in the first half, but for now avoiding going under the knife is relatively positive news.
