Second baseman Brian Roberts’ wife, Diana, gave birth to the couple’s first child Friday, a son named Jax Isaac, who weighed six pounds, seven ounces.
“Everything seems to be going well,” Showalter said. “He was up for most of the night.”
Roberts was still on paternity leave for Saturday night’s game against the Seattle Mariners, with Alexi Casilla — who is starting his first game since July 8 — taking his place in the field. Showalter said Roberts could return for Sunday’s season finale, but he wasn’t sure yet. The current plan is for Roberts to return to the Orioles on Monday and fly with the team to San Diego.
