Betemit suffers sprained ligament to right knee
By Associated Press

Baltimore Orioles designated hitter Wilson Betemit suffered a sprained ligament in his right knee in the fifth inning of Monday's game with Boston.

The 31-year-old Betemit, who was the Orioles' regular third baseman until the recall of Manny Machado last August, was on first base and running on the pitch when Machado flied to left. He collapsed near second base and was carted off the field.

When he reached the clubhouse, trainers put a leg brace on Betemit.

The team says he will be reevaluated on Tuesday.
