Betemit, Britton could be available if O's advance
NEW YORK -- Should the Orioles advance to the American League Championship Series, infielder Wilson Betemit and left-hander Zach Britton are among several options who could be added to the team's roster.

Manager Buck Showalter said Betemit (right wrist injury) has been serving at designated hitter in the team's instructional league games in Florida, and the plan is for him to play first and third base on Thursday. Betemit hit .261/.322/.422 with 12 homers and 40 RBIs in 102 games.

Britton threw three innings in a simulated game Tuesday as they try to build him back up as a starting option. The 24-year-old lefty went 5-3 with a 5.07 ERA in 12 games (11 starts).
