Wilson Betemit hasn’t appeared in a major league game this season due to a spring training knee injury. But that should change on Tuesday night.

Infielder Alexi Casilla is hitting .200/.222/.257 in 35 at-bats for the Orioles this season after coming in at .241/.282/.321 in 299 at-bats for the Twins last year.
