head first slide into 2b looked like he got a knee to the head but the camera caught him holding his left rib cage while he was taking his lead on the next pitch then lugo went in the game durning the next half inn
Roberts told MASNSports.com that he's not feeling any better or worse than he did on Saturday. He is going to be a major injury-risk play for Week 2 (April 12-18) and more than likely could miss the entire scoring period, especially if he lands on the DL. Keep him reserved until noted otherwise. He is a must-start, when healthy. He's just yet to really get healthy this season.
Roberts (abdomen) said that he and the Orioles' trainers are hopeful that he'll return in four-to-six days, without requiring a DL stint, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports. Spin: Ultimately, we'll know more about Roberts' status after he's evaluated again on Sunday, but his availability for the upcoming week definitely appears to be in doubt at this point.
B-Chad wrote:Pedroia's LD rate of 20% is reason to believe he'll maintain a higher BA then Cano. It should also be noted he hits more FB's then Cano, which means that even if he posts a lower HR/FB then Cano, he should come in reasonably close to Cano in HR's
Brian Roberts (back) has been cleared to begin light exercises and strengthening activities. It's good news, however Orioles manager Dave Trembley said it'll be "slow going" with Roberts, so his return doesn't seem anywhere near imminent. He's scheduled to be examined again by back specialist Dr. Lee Riley on Sunday.
Brian Roberts, 2B, Baltimore Orioles Roberts’s fantasy owners should start looking for a long-term replacement for the injured second baseman. Roberts saw a back specialist for the second time in four days this week, and while the prognosis wasn’t disastrous, the expected recovery time has changed from a matter of days to a matter of weeks.
Roberts has a herniated disc in his back, a problem that sometimes requires surgery. As of right now, surgery isn’t necessary, but the Orioles are going to take it easy with his rehab program. Another setback could mean Roberts goes under the knife. His fantasy owners can hope he’s back in few weeks, but plan for him to be out through mid-May, and pray that he doesn’t sit until June or later.
Anybody know anything new? I just read on Baltimoresun.com that he may not return at all this season. Now that was a comment on the latest news about him by someone else who has had a herniated disk. Not anything official. But, being someone who has chronic back pain myself, I'm starting to think the exact same thing. I'm just a day away from dropping him as it really looks bad right now.
Roberts hasn't been cleared to resume baseball activities, but I haven't heard any indications that he's out for the season. He's also apparently battling some stomach problems. That being said, expect him to be out for a while.
"This guy leads the league in most offensive categories, including nose hair..."
"At this point, we just don't really have a timetable yet," Roberts said today. "We're continuing to do some physical therapy. I don't know. It could be three weeks from now, it could be three months from now. Honestly, I don't know."
