SARASOTA, Fla. -- Baltimore Orioles infielder Wilson Betemit estimates he'll be out for six to eight weeks because of a tear in his right knee.

Betemit was hurt Monday while running the bases in an exhibition game and had an MRI. He was diagnosed with a tear of the posterior cruciate ligament.

Betemit said Tuesday that he's glad he won't need surgery.

The 31-year-old Betemit hit .261 with 12 home runs and 40 RBIs last season with Baltimore. He played third base, first base and the outfield, and also was a designated hitter.

Betemit has played for Atlanta, the Dodgers, the Yankees, the White Sox, Kansas City and Detroit.
