From Rotoworld:

Brian Roberts was removed after five innings tonight, but it was apparently just to get him some extra rest.
The Orioles were up 7-0 at the time. Chris Gomez took over at second base. Jun. 18 - 10:09 pm et

He's out of the lineup today. That's a concern. Does this have anything to do with last night?

Brian Roberts didn't play today against the Rockies because of back spasms.
Manager Lee Mazzilli wouldn't admit it then, but it's also clear that Roberts' departure from last night's game was because of his back. Roberts is likely to be in the lineup tomorrow in Toronto. ''Going on that [artificial] turf, it would probably be a good day [for him to rest] right now,'' Mazzilli said. ''I could tell [he was hurting]. The kid wants to play every day. But I could tell it was just a little nagging thing. It happens because he plays hard, sliding head first, diving for ground balls. He goes all out. I can see why he has [a back] problem

It will probably be a nagging back problem for him all season so his fantasy owners should expect he will miss a couple of days here and there.

Roidboy is out? What a suprise.

Yahoo seems to think that he'll play tonight:

Jun 20 Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts is expected to play in Monday's game against the Blue Jays, ESPN News is reporting. He left Saturday's game against the Rockies in the sixth inning because of a stiff back and was held out of Sunday's game.

Views: Those in daily leagues may want to take a chance on Roberts tonight because it appears he will suit up. If you're in a weekly league, don't hesitate to use him this period.
