The Orioles have lost 31-year old switch-hitting DH/3B Wilson Betemit for the next 6-8 weeks due to a tear in his right knee.  Betemit played in 102 games for the Orioles last year and he was 89 for 341 (.261 avg, .744 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 12 homers and 40 RBIs.  Due to Betemit’s injury, Nolan Reimold will likely start at DH with Nate McLouth starting full time in LF until Betemit returns to action.  The Orioles are still in solid shape without Betemit for the start of the 2013 season.

UPDATE:  (3/31/2013) – The Orioles have officially placed Wilson Betemit on the 15-day D.L.
