MLB Injury News:
While the Baltimore Orioles’ primary focus is on their
current American League Division Series opponents the New York Yankees, several
injured players are looking later into the playoffs when they hope to rejoin
the team. Baltimore released injury updates on outfielder Nick Markakis and
utility player Wilson Betemit.
Betemit continues to take batting practice at the Orioles’
Spring Training facility in Sarasota, FL. There’s some that said he was physically available for the ALDS, but the matchup wasn’t right and Baltimore opted to
keep him off the roster. However, if his progress continues there’s a chance he’ll
be added to the team’s roster if they’re able to advance past the Yankees.
While Betemit could be available for the Championship
Series, it may take Markakis a while longer to return. He did have the pins
removed from his broken thumb on Tuesday, and he’s hoping Baltimore can
continue to its playoff run long enough for him to fully recover.

Jim Johnson had a slight margin for error a night after the Baltimore Orioles closer allowed a tie game to turn into a blowout.
Not that a one-run lead with the top of the New York Yankees lineup is much.

The Orioles head to New York to play game 3 from the American League Division Series (ALDS) after bouncing back to take game 2 and even then series at 1-1.
