SARASOTA, FLA. —
If Brian Roberts has an extra bounce in his step, it’s for good reason. He’s back feeling good and ready to compete for the starting second base job, but there’s something going on his life that is even more important than playing baseball. Brian and his wife Diana are expecting their first child.
“It’s awesome,’’ Roberts said. “It’s been a huge blessing. Most people know of my passion and affinity for kids. Being able to add that to our life…to be able to have that is really great timing for us after all that has gone on. I think it has provided us with an extra boost.”
