SARASOTA, Fla. - There weren't many concrete answers given during Brian Roberts' news conference with the media Friday afternoon, but the words of the injured Orioles second baseman's words resonated well. I don't know Roberts well, especially since these are my first days on the beat, but he seemed genuine in discussing the steps in his recovery from multiple concussions. As had been made clear throughout the organization, this is a frustrating situation for everyone, including Roberts.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said earlier this week that he is content with the team's current options at second base, but manager Buck Showalter expressed his desire to re-sign free agent Brian Roberts during his news conference with the media on Tuesday at the winter meetings. The 36-year-old Roberts is a life-long Oriole and would likely return on a one-year deal. Ryan Flaherty is the front-runner for the position, but the team also acquired second baseman Jemile Weeks from the Oakland Athletics in last week's Jim Johnson trade.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- As the visiting clubhouse at Tropicana Field cleared out and the Orioles packed up for their flight back home to Baltimore, second baseman Brian Roberts slowly limped to his locker, visibly downtrodden. Roberts had just been carried off the field after injuring his right hamstring while stealing second base in the ninth inning of the Orioles' 6-3 win Thursday over the Tampa Bay Rays. Roberts, who was looking forward to playing in his first home opener since 2011, now appears to be out indefinitely.

Orioles beat writer Eduardo A. Encina sat down with Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts before Wednesday's game against the Royals to talk about his recovery from multiple concussions and the one-year anniversary of his last game. His head-first slide into first base on May 16, 2011 triggered a second onset of concussion symptoms.  The details are in today's Orioles notebook , but here's a more complete transcript of the Q&A with Roberts, where he reflects on being away from baseball for a year, how close he feels to getting back in a game and what he's learned about himself since his last game.

Second baseman Brian Roberts will be in uniform when the Orioles take the field for their first full-squad workout Friday at the Ed Smith Stadium complex, but it remains to be seen how much he will be able to participate in the early drills. Manager Buck Showalter met with him on the field after Thursday's final pitcher-catcher workout and said the progress that Roberts has made in his recovery from two concussions has been “very encouraging.” “We'll see what tomorrow brings,” Showalter said.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Brian Roberts has been through a lot over the past three years, but things are definitely looking up. He's back in camp with a new lease on baseball life after three years of injuries and frustration, and he said Friday that he and his wife Diana are expecting their first child during the upcoming season. “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.” Roberts missed time in 2010 with a back problem and a late-season concussion.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts has been placed on the three-day paternity list and the club has activated pitcher Steve Johnson from the 15-day disabled list. Roberts was in the hospital Friday with his wife, who was about to give birth to the couple's first child, a son. Johnson had been on the disabled list since June 6 with a left oblique strain. The St. Paul's alum will be in the bullpen Friday. Johnson was 1-1 with a 8.49 ERA in five games this year for the Orioles.

Just over a year ago, on Sept. 27, 2010, the Orioles were leading the Tampa Bay Rays, 4-0, in the ninth inning of a largely meaningless road game when second baseman Brian Roberts came to the plate. He felt prepared for the at-bat, and believed reliever Joaquin Benoit would throw him a changeup. With the count 2-2, the right-hander did. Roberts still swung and missed. "Sometimes the pitcher could tell you what's coming and you still wouldn't execute your plan right," he says, clearly still miffed.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts told reporters Friday that he wants to play as many games as possible this spring so he can test himself physically after offseason hip and sports hernia surgery. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Roberts will have that chance. While most veteran players don't often make road trips during the Grapefruit League season, Roberts will. “We've gone over the whole spring. We've sat down multiple times,” Showalter said. “He will have a pair of [road]

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts is slated to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday at Triple-A Norfolk, manager Buck Showalter announced before Friday's game against the Blue Jays in Toronto. Roberts, who is recovering from right hamstring surgery performed May 9, had been rehabbing with the club for two weeks. Before Friday's game in Toronto, he continued to perform sprint drills and run the bases, two final steps before he can go on a rehab assignment. If everything progresses as planned, Roberts would return with the team to Baltimore following the weekend's series in Toronto, work out with the club Monday and then drive down to Norfolk to begin playing there Tuesday.
