07:11 AM ET 08.19 | What might be considered by many outside the organization to be an obvious solution may not be within it. The impending return of switch-hitter Wilson Betemit from the injury he suffered in spring training does not preclude the Orioles from adding a designated hitter within the next two weeks, according to the club's top executive. "We have Wilson in our organization. If he is ready, and he can help us, we would put him on our ballclub, but he's not quite ready yet. He's getting closer, but he's been out for a long time," Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said Sunday. "We want to find another hitter. We have been looking at this issue for a while, and we want to find a solution for DH. [Betemit] can certainly be a solution. He is a good hitter, but he needs some at-bats."
