Baltimore Orioles designated hitter Wilson Betemit suffered a sprained ligament in his right knee in the fifth inning of Monday's game with Boston.
The 31-year-old Betemit, who was the Orioles' regular third baseman until the recall of Manny Machado last August, was on first base and running on the pitch when Machado flied to left. He collapsed near second base and was carted off the field.
When he reached the clubhouse, trainers put a leg brace on Betemit.
The team says he will be reevaluated on Tuesday.

People questioned him. People in the game, people with the Orioles, even people in the media privately wondered what the heck was wrong with Brian Roberts.

Roberts heard the whispers. And for 13 months as he struggled to get...

There is an incredibly good chance Nolan Reimold will go undrafted in your fantasy league, and to be honest, I can’t argue with that rationale. However, there are a few reasons why he should remain on your radar as an intriguing sleeper option, especially in leagues with 5 OF or multiple UTIL slots. Here’s your [...]
Markakis hit .450 against the Yankees in 2012.
Threat Level: 8
In 2012, the Orioles were 29-9 in 1-run games and 16-2 in extra inning games (where they won their last 16 in a row). Both of those numbers are major league records. To say they cannot do that again would be stating the obvious, but saying they cannot be competitive again would be wrong. The Orioles’ offense still...

Jeff Karstens was scratched today with soreness.
Jeff Karstens was originally scheduled to make a start today against the Baltimore Orioles. Instead he was scratched and will be replaced by Chris Leroux. Prior to this, Karstens had yet to throw more than two innings in a start, and the season is a week away.
The reaction that I’ve seen so far is that this will open up the competition...
