Orioles closer Zach Britton will miss the team's second intrasquad game today.

The pitcher is dealing with soreness in his oblique muscle. Orioles manager Buck Showalter hasn't said how sever the injury is. An update may be provided later this week. 

Britton converted on all 47 of his save opportunities last season.
