Right wrist still sore, Betemit to undergo MRI
BALTIMORE -- Wilson Betemit was out of Wednesday's lineup and is scheduled to get an MRI on Thursday morning on a sore right wrist that has been bothering him the past two days.

"He tried to hit a little bit today, and it's day to day," manager Buck Showalter said of Betemit. "He's better today than he was yesterday."

With the arrival of top prospect Manny Machado, Betemit was expected to platoon with Mark Reynolds at first base, but he hasn't played since Sunday. Showalter said the wrist began bothering Betemit, who is hitting .306 against right-handed pitching, during Monday's off-day, which is also the day reliever Troy Patton rolled his right ankle. Reynolds started at first base Wednesday and is coming off his first multihomer game of the season in Tuesday's 7-1 win vs. the Red Sox.

Right now, the Orioles are optimistic Betemit's injury isn't serious.

"[We] should have an idea if that's anything more than tendinitis. [I] hope to know sometime after noon," Showalter said.
