The New York Yankees are listed at 6/1 odds to win the 2018 World Series after boosting their bullpen Tuesday.

The Yankees acquired former All-Star reliever Zach Britton from the Baltimore Orioles for three minor league pitchers in a trade announced Tuesday night.

The deal sends right-handed starter Dillon Tate, left-handed starter Josh Rogers and righty reliever Cody Carroll to Baltimore.

Britton, 30, has amassed 139 saves for the Orioles since 2013.

"I'm not there yet, so when I get in the clubhouse ... I know what the feeling's like when you're a winning ballclub and you get in that clubhouse, you can feel it," Britton said of joining the Yankees. "Hopefully, I can step right in and do a good job."

Britton had ruptured his right Achilles during an offseason workout session and didn't make his 2018 debut until June 12.

Britton said he'll have no problem setting up Yankees closer Chapman.

"Yeah, I think you've got to go into a new team and earn your role, especially with the guys they have over there," he said. "They've got some guys who are doing really well. I'm just going to try to fit in and earn any role that's given to me.
