Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts describes his new batting helmet as “function over looks.” Roberts, who played his first major league game in nearly 13 months Tuesday after battling multiple concussions, is wearing a helmet with double ear flaps to add protection at the plate and on the basepaths. “The double ear flap looks funny, doesn't it?” Roberts said before Wednesday's game against Pittsburgh. “I just decided, 'Why take a chance of getting hit on the side that doesn't have a flap.' It's their newest version.

Second baseman Brian Roberts (hamstring) will join the Orioles on Saturday and be activated from the 60-day disabled list and added to the team's 40-man/25-man roster Sunday for the series finale against the New York Yankees, manager Buck Showalter said following the Orioles' 4-3 win. The Orioles will have to make a move to add Roberts to the 25-man roster but they will not have to make a move to add him to the 40-man roster. Roberts exited Friday night's game at Triple-A Norfolk after the fifth inning because of rain and field conditions after going 0-for-3.

The Orioles are placing second baseman Brian Roberts on the 15-day disabled list with a right groin strain, manager Buck Showalter said before Tuesday's game against the Mariners. Roberts was out of the lineup Monday with groin soreness and the Orioles were awaiting results of an MRI up until 90 minutes before game time Tuesday. Since early Tuesday afternoon, Showalter had two lineups written out. Roberts, who missed nearly 13 months recovering from multiple concussions, played just 17 games before landing on the DL again.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts went 1-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored and two stolen bases in his first road game of the spring Tuesday. Roberts, who was limited to 115 games the past three seasons because of injuries, is returning from hip and sports hernia surgery in 2012 and concussion symptoms that have plagued him in the past. With less than two weeks remaining in spring training, he will begin to see more regular playing time to prepare for the grind of the regular season.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts' work this spring has been confined to the back fields of the Ed Smith Stadium complex, but on Tuesday he took a considerable step forward in his recovery from multiple concussions by participating in pre-game batting practice and fielding drills before the Orioles' Grapefruit League game against the Rays.   “I think my doctor would probably agree that getting in an environment where there's a lot going on, that's a big step because that's a part of the progression ... trying to re-acclimate into those environments,” Roberts said.

Second baseman Brian Roberts will play in his first baseball game today since sliding headfirst into the first-base bag at Fenway Park on May 16, 2011 - more than a year ago. Yes, it's only a minor league game at Double-A Bowie. And yes, he'll only play the field for a few innings and get a couple at-bats tonight and Thursday and will be exclusively the DH on Friday. Who knows what will happen, whether he can overcome his concussion symptoms and return to the Orioles after his 20-day rehab assignment is over?

Watching from the dugout as Brian Roberts clutched the back of his right knee Thursday, Ryan Flaherty knew an injury to the Orioles' starting second baseman could create an opportunity for him. But Flaherty's first feeling was concern for Roberts, a veteran teammate whom he says gave him invaluable advice as Flaherty manned second base for the Orioles in the playoffs last fall. “It was tough to watch that, especially to have it happen to a player like him. He helped me tremendously last year playing second,” Flaherty said Saturday.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, who had been in Sarasota, Fla., rehabbing from hip surgery, has rejoined the team and will travel with the O's throughout the postseason. “This is something that I've wanted to experience for a long time,” Roberts said. “It doesn't take a genius to know it would feel a lot better on the field, but at the same time, I'm extremely happy for the organization and the city and the fans and the Angelos family and everyone who's worked so hard through so many struggles the last 15 years to experience this.” Roberts, who had surgery Aug. 2 to repair a labrum tear, said he's taken a significant step in his rehab.

The Orioles have released their batting order for their season opener against the Tampa Bay Rays, which will surely get people talking because it is Opening Day and all. But manager Buck Showalter scribbled down more than 100 different lineups last season, so we probably shouldn't make too much about Tuesday's order. Still, it will be pretty odd seeing Brian Roberts hitting from the nine hole instead of leading off like he has -- when healthy -- for most of his Orioles career. “I'm happy to be healthy and playing, and my job for the past 13 years had been to be the best leadoff man in the game I could be,” Roberts said Friday.
