Baltimore Orioles 3B/DH Wilson Betemit (knee) moved to Double-A Bowie on Wednesday, Aug. 14, to continue his rehab assignment. Manager Buck Showalter said that Betemit will rehab at whichever of the club's affiliates is at home so that he can be the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: The O's have no need to use him in the field if and when he returns. But his assignment is likely to take awhile, so he may not be ready to play in the field, anyway. It's unlikely that Betemit makes a contribution in AL-only leagues before the season is through, but he may get an opportunity at some point in September.
