Dickerson, Pearce, and Valencia are all doing fine at the moment. They are all hitting reasonably well and are not deserving of a demotion. Travis Ishikawa, who has an opt out date coming soon, is tearing the cover off the ball in AAA and will probably get some at-bats at DH in the near future. Nolan Reimold and Wilson Betemit are rehabbing. I predict Urrutia will be in the minors the whole year.

I guess you could DH him, of course that is assuming he is MLB ready. I still think Urrutia is at best an average starting outfielder, at worst he is a fourth outfielder.
Fourth outfielders are easy to come by. We are already stocked at that position.
The chance of Urrutia being an all star caliber player are VERY slim. Next season he will be 27 years old. I would trade him in a New York second if it meant getting a good starting pitcher in Baltimore......
