Brian Roberts, 2B BAL
News: The Baltimore Orioles will have to go a little bit longer without injured second baseman Brian Roberts, who has abandoned his bid to leave the disabled list after a minimum 15-day absence. Roberts went on the disabled list April 30 with a strained groin and was eligible to return on Monday. "I think tomorrow is probably pushing it," Roberts said Sunday. "Certainly I'd love to play, but I want to be smart." Roberts tested the injury in the batting cage and felt no discomfort. But he has yet to risk running full-tilt.
Analysis: Roberts is fearful of rushing back and re-injuring himself. The Orioles have also considered that scenario, so they will probably hold off activating him until Friday, following a three-game series at home against the Boston Red Sox. Keep Roberts reserved for the upcoming scoring period.
