Baltimore could use Nolan Reimold as the everyday designated hitter and Nate McLouth the everyday left fielder in Betemit's absence. This injury definitely means a little more playing time available to each of those players.
Wilson Betemit suffers torn ligament
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (3/25/2013) Orioles third baseman Wilson Betemit could require reconstructive surgery after an MRI exam revealed a Grade 2/3 PCL tear, a team spokesperson told MASNsports.com on Monday night. Betemit also suffered "associated injuries" and the team is expected to provide additional information on his status Tuesday.
The 31-year-old, who was the Orioles' regular third baseman until the recall of Manny Machado last August, suffered the injury during Monday's Grapefruit League contest against Boston. He was on first base and running on the pitch when Machado flied to left, but collapsed near second base and was carted off the field before being fitted for a brace in the clubhouse.

Betemit entered the game batting .194 on the spring and was expected to see time in the outfield, at third base and at DH for the Orioles this season.
Betermit will have an MRI Monday night and results will be announced Tuesday, the Orioles announced.
