Wilson Betemit will not need surgery on his right wrist, which he reinjured during batting practice Friday in Oakland, according to Showalter.
Betemit saw a hand specialist in Sarasota on Monday, who determined from tests that Betemit, who was on the disabled list in August with a similar wrist injury, is just dealing with inflammation.
“They didn't feel like he needed surgery. That was good news,” Showalter said. “So he is going to probably get [a cortisone] injection and wait for the inflammation to go down.”
Betemit is likely out for the season, but Showalter was not ready to concede that yet, preferring to see how quickly the inflammation subsides.
