The Baltimore Orioles are placing closer Zach Britton on the 10-day DL after the reliever began experiencing pain in his left forearm during his appearance Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays, according to Sportsnet's Arash Madani.

Britton apparently felt the discomfort while throwing his curveball, though manager Buck Showalter doesn't anticipate the 29-year-old being out for a lengthy period of time.

"It's too soon to know, but we're confident it shouldn't be long term," Showalter told The Baltimore Sun's Eduardo A. Encina.

In his outing Friday, Britton pitched one inning, picking up the save despite allowing an earned run and three hits.

He'll be replaced on the roster by Stefan Crichton, who the Orioles recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, according to Encina.
