Description: Former Orioles DH Wilson Betemit has signed on with the Rays. SOURCE: Jon Heyman, CBS Sports
Insight: His minor league contract includes an invite to spring training. Betemit missed most of the 2013 campaign while battling knee injuries. The year before, he hit .261 with 12 HR and 40 RBI in 102 games. He's not going to be an everyday player in Tampa.

Description: The Orioles designated DH Wilson Betemit for assignment on Monday. SOURCE: Dan Connolly, Baltimore Sun
Insight: The Orioles haven't been using him lately so this really doesn't change anything. Mostly, the move gives Henry Urrutia, who will now take Betemit's place on the active roster, a chance to play some meaningful games in September.

Description: Baltimore DH Wilson Betemit could be nearing a return from the disabled list. SOURCE: Eduardo Encina, Baltimore Sun
Insight: Betemit's rehab shifts to High-A Frederick on Monday. In five games with the Gulf Coast Orioles, he's 6-for-16 (.375 AVG) with three RBI. Betemit had surgery on his right knee prior to the season.

Description: Orioles DH Wilson Betemit expects to come off the DL sometime before the All-Star break. SOURCE: Baltimore Sun
Insight: Betemit hasn't played yet this season after suffering a knee injury in spring training. Chris Dickerson (.281, 4 HR, 11 RBI) has been filling in as the DH in Betemit's absence.
 
3/27/2013 5:02:00 PM
Description: MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports that Orioles DH Wilson Betemit will miss the next 6-to-8 weeks with a Grade 2/3 PCL tear in his right knee.
Insight: That's actually a much more positive diagnosis than we had expected. If Betemit had required surgery, he could have missed most of the 2013 season. Nolan Reimold will take over at DH for the time being.
 
3/25/2013 8:41:00 PM
Description: Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun is reporting that Orioles DH Wilson Betemit has a torn PCL in his right knee.
Insight: If Betemit needs surgery, he'll probably be out for the whole season. As it stands now, Nolan Reimold (.313, 5 HR, 10 RBI last season) is likely to be the Orioles' starting DH in 2013.
 
9/13/2012 11:15:00 AM
Description: Baltimore third baseman Wilson Betemit has a strong history against Rays starter Jeremy Hellickson. In 13 prior at bats, Betemit is hitting .385 versus the Tampa Bay righthander.
Insight: Betemit's role has been limited in recent weeks due to Manny Machado's emergence, but if you still have him on your roster, he could be a smart fantasy play on Thursday.
 
9/1/2012 12:42:00 PM
Description: Orioles third baseman Wilson Betemit has been activated from the 15-day disabled list for Saturday's game against New York after recovering from a partially torn ligament in right wrist.
Insight: Betemit doesn't figure to play much with youngster Manny Machado starting at third base. Betemit has very little fantasy value at this point of the season.
 
8/15/2012 6:56:00 PM
Description: Orioles third baseman Wilson Betemit is out for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox because of a sore right wrist. He's expected to have an MRI on Thursday morning.
Insight: Betemit's fantasy stock went down the tubes as soon as Manny Machado made it to the majors last week. Even if he's healthy, don't expect him to play a large role in Baltimore's offense as the season progresses.
 
8/9/2012 6:02:00 PM
Description: Baltimore third baseman Wilson Betemit won't start Thursday night against the Royals.
Insight: Betemit (.263, 12 HR, 37 RBI) will sit in favor of Manny Machado, who is making his major league debut on Thursday. Machado is likely to see most of the action at third base going forward, so expect Betemit to lose most of his fantasy value.
 
Hot8/3/2012 6:23:00 PM
Description: Orioles third baseman Wilson Betemit is sitting out Friday's series opener versus Tampa Bay.
Insight: Betemit (.265, 12 HR, 37 RBI) has been on a tear as of late, hitting .458 over his last six games.
 
7/22/2012 10:29:00 AM
Description: Orioles third baseman Wilson Betemit could be in for a huge fantasy day Sunday against the Indians. He's batting .421 in 19 career at bats versus Cleveland righthander Josh Tomlin.
Insight: Betemit (.251, 10 HRs, 33 RBIs) went 0-for-4 in Saturday's game but he should be able to get back on track Sunday against Tomlin and the Indians.
 
Hot6/30/2012 9:22:00 AM
Description: Baltimore infielder Wilson Betemit is a career .412 hitter (7-for-17) against Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin.
Insight: Betemit has played first, third, outfield and DH this season and that versatility along with 10 HR, 31 RBI and a .798 OPS make for a valuable player on your bench. He's been particularly hot over the past four weeks, batting .414 in his last 18 games.
 
6/4/2012 11:05:00 AM
Description: Baltimore infielder Wilson Betemit is questionable for Tuesday's game against Boston due to illness.
Insight: Betemit has played first, third, outfield and DH this season and has shown some pop (7 HR, 23 RBI) but not on a consistent enough basis to start in your fantasy lineup.
 
4/29/2012 8:55:00 PM
Description: Wilson Betemit's three-run homer off of Grant Balfour in the ninth inning completed a two-run comeback for the Orioles, who walked away 5-2 winners.
Insight: This was probably Baltimore's most memorable win since beating Jonathan Papelbon and the Red Sox on a walk-off single in the ninth in the final game of the regular season last year. Betemit has done alright this year (.235, 3 HRs, 10 RBIs) but with Mark Reynolds standing in his way, we wouldn't expect Betemit to play in much more than half of the Orioles' games this season.
 
2/15/2011 10:02:00 AM
Description: The Kansas City Star reports Betemit (right elbow) reported to camp with a sore elbow.
Insight: Betemit apparently first experienced the issue while playing winter ball. He hit .297 with 13 home runs and 43 RBI in 276 at-bats for the Royals in 2010. (RapidDraft.com)
 
8/23/2010 10:44:00 AM
Description: Betemit went 2-for-4 with a home run against the White Sox on Sunday.
Insight: Betemit is hitting .346 with eight home runs with 25 RBI with the Royals this. He could be worth a look in deep AL-only leagues if you need help at this point. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/23/2010 11:52:00 AM
Description: The Kansas City Star reports Royals' manager Ned Yost said Betemit will be the team's regular third baseman with Alberto Callaspo being traded to the Angels on Thursday.
Insight: Alex Gordon, who is currently at Triple-A Omaha, does not appear to be an option right now. Betemit could be worth a look in AL-only leagues, but nothing more. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/7/2010 10:11:00 AM
Description: Betemit went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI against the Mariners on Tuesday night.
Insight: Betemit is hitting .386 with four home runs and 10 RBI through 44 at-bats with the Royals this season, but he is still not a recommended fantasy option due to lack of playing time. He should come down to earth fairly soon anyway. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/11/2010 10:09:00 AM
Description: Betemit went 2-for-4 with two home runs against the Twins on Thursday night.
Insight: Betemit does not play enough to warrant any fantasy consideration. (SportsBuff.com)
