The Baltimore Orioles have placed infielder Wilson Betemit on the disabled list with a wrist injury. Betemit was the Orioles third baseman for most of the season until Manny Machado replaced him. Betemit has also seen time at first base and hit .264 with 12 home runs.
Joe Mahoney is a first baseman and was called up for a few games earlier this season. Mahoney has spent most of his time with the Norfolk Tides and has batted .263 with nine home runs for the Tides.
Here is a tweet from Luke Jones confirming the roster move.
