Orioles reinstate Urrutia and DFA Betemit
The Baltimore Orioles reinstated Henry Urrutia yesterday and designated Wilson Betemit for assignment. Betemit was hurt most of this year and did not record a hit in 10 plate appearances. Urrutia had to be put on a reserve list because of Visa problems, he was not able to go to Canada to play against the Toronto Blue Jays.
I do not think Betemit was ready to return from his injury, he just did not get the at bats in for him to be part of a postseason roster.
Here is the Orioles press release.
