CHICAGO - Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he was tempted to give second baseman Brian Roberts a day off defensively and bat him at designated hitter in Thursday's day-after-night game against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. But instead, Showalter kept Roberts at second base and gave him his first career start in the No. 6 spot in the lineup. He previously had two career at-bats in the sixth spot, most recently in 2003. Roberts moved up in the order because Showalter gave starting catcher Matt Wieters a day off. And while Showalter still likes the spark Roberts, who returned from the disabled list Sunday, adds from the No. 9 spot after the veteran spent most of his career as a leadoff man, the Orioles manager is open to moving him around.

As it turns out, the Orioles not only blew a six-run lead on Monday against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, they lost the right side of their infield for what could be an extended period. Veteran first baseman Derrek Lee , who strained his left oblique in that game, was put on the 15-day disabled list Thursday. Second baseman Brian Roberts , who started Monday's contest with a head-first slide into first base to beat out an infield single, was put on the seven-day concussion disabled list.

After more than a year of being out of big league baseball while attempting to rise above concussion symptoms, second baseman Brian Roberts is back in the game. He started his rehab assignment Wednesday in Double-A Bowie. The clock now starts ticking. He has 20 days to be activated by the big league club, though the team can halt the clock if he suffers a relapse or another injury. Otherwise, they would have to waive him, and the Orioles won't do that with their most veteran player and $10 million man. So the next three weeks are going to be interesting.

The 1999 draft mostly will be remembered for the Orioles' failures, but they did snag Brian Roberts with a supplemental pick. He broke into the majors in 2001, getting his first hit off current teammate Steve Trachsel, and was named Most Valuable Oriole four years later. Roberts spent his final college season at South Carolina after transferring from North Carolina, where his father was head coach. He signed a two-year extension last week. Which pitcher served up your first major league hit, and what do you remember about it?

The Orioles have listed their probables for the Boston series and Miguel Gonzalez is not on the list. We'll ask Buck Showalter after the game today as to why he is skipping Gonzalez - or pushing him back to the Yankees series. Wilson Betemit was in the clubhouse on crutches today. He said he is relieved that arthroscopic surgery did not show any further damage in his right knee. He will head to Sarasota, Fla., Wednesday to begin rehab. He said he expects to be evaluated in about a month to get a better idea of when he can return.

Oft-injured Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts is expected to miss at least another six weeks after making the decision Wednesday to have surgery to repair a muscle in his injured right hamstring. Roberts, who was injured while sliding into second base on a stolen base April 4 in Tampa Bay, visited specialist Dr. Daniel Cooper on Tuesday because he wasn't satisfied with how his recovery was progressing. Cooper will perform the surgery Thursday in Dallas to repair the semitendinosis muscle in his right hamstring.

The Orioles have planned out the remainder of second baseman Brian Roberts' minor league rehab assignment, and he will complete his assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on the road. "We talked about really wanting to finish up competition-wise in Triple-A," Showalter said. "That's tentative if we don't have any setbacks. "It's also the way the schedule fell. Everyone's on the road. I think at that stage Robby felt he wanted to face the best competition he could. " For position players like Roberts, who hasn't played in a major league game in more than a year and is attempting a comeback from multiple concussions, minor league rehab assignments are limited to 20 days.

The Orioles received bad news regarding the health of second baseman Brian Roberts on Friday. The results of an MRA taken Thursday revealed that Roberts has a right hip labral tear. It is a tear in the cartilage that surrounds the outside of the hip bone.  The injury would likely require surgery, but Roberts will first get a second opinion from a hip specialist in Atlanta before deciding his next step. “I traded texts with [Roberts] back and forth, obviously a little depressed about the physical issue,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Welcome to a spring training version of Connolly's Bar We're in Florida, so we'll put some boat drinks on special. I'm afraid to light the Tiki torch, though. I don't want to burn the whole place down. So we'll just concentrate on baseball instead. Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts held court Monday in Sarasota. He's 8-for-20 in seven Grapefruit League games so far. He has not played on the road yet. He has not dived headfirst into the bag on a steal attempt (though he did do it at first base on a pickoff attempt with no problems)
