Betemit has been activated from the 60-day disabled list and will be available off the Orioles’ bench for Tuesday night’s series-opener at Boston’s Fenway Park. Ryan Flaherty was optioned to High-A Frederick in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
Betemit had 12 home runs, 19 doubles and 40 RBI in 376 plate appearances last season for Baltimore and could be a nice source of power down the stretch.
The 31-year-old will serve as a pinch-hitter and part-time DH.
