Zach Britton has changed his name to Zack Britton

Sorry Mssrs. Braff, Galifianakis and former President Taylor, because the Zachs of the world just lost one of their brightest baseball-playing stars: Yankees reliever Zach Britton will now be known as Zack Britton, swapping out the "H" for a "K." Because, hey, pitchers could always use more K's. 
The news was originally reported by YES Network researcher James Smyth, but the pitcher took to Twitter to confirm the change.
