The Orioles are sputtering along without their offensive sparkplug, Brian Roberts, who has called his headaches "certainly concerning" and will visit a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. But if their leadoff hitter’s latest injury issue results in an extended absence, the Orioles will be in trouble. We don’t have to dig deep into our memory banks to remember how the Orioles have struggled without Roberts. Last season, the Orioles went 30-29 when Roberts played and were 36-67 when he didn’t.

The Orioles are going for a series win in Seattle in this afternoon's series finale against the Mariners at Safeco Field. Right-hander Chris Tillman has officially been recalled from Triple-A Norfolk and will make his first big league start since last Aug. 11. Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, who was placed on the 15-day DL Tuesday with a right groin strain,  is heading back to Baltimore for more tests. He's going to get a magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA) to see if his injury is hip related.

With Brian Roberts recently making significant strides in his recovery from a right hamstring surgery, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that the second baseman could begin a minor league rehab assignment right after the team's road trip ends Sunday. “He'll know,” Showalter said. “We talk about it every day. I love having Brian around and he got through taking ground balls. He was doing slow rollers plays, balls to his right where he really needs to push off. He's had a lot of tests that he's passed so far. We've talked about it. It might not happen, but there's a chance he could go out at the end of this trip.” Roberts has done a significant amount of early work on the team's trip to Detroit.  He participated in sprint and agility drills Tuesday and Showalter said one of the biggest remaining tests is perfecting short bursts of running.

S econd baseman Brian Roberts is expected to play for the Orioles this weekend for the first time since April. And when he returns to the team, he will regain his starting spot at second base. “If and when he comes back, yeah,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said when asked if Roberts was the definite starter at second. “We'll spot him here and there but Brian, [it's] the same way it was in the spring.” Roberts, the 35-year-old veteran who has been with the Orioles since 2001, was the club's Opening Day starter at second base against the Tampa Bay Rays on April 2. But in his third game, he injured his right hamstring, which eventually required surgery.

Brian Roberts is back with the Orioles, but the oft-injured second baseman knows how quickly it could change. The Orioles activated Roberts from the disabled list Sunday, and he was in the lineup batting ninth as the team's designated hitter in their series finale against the New York Yankees. “I don't look past today,” Roberts said. “I've learned enough in my career to realize that I'm going to enjoy today, play hard today. It's not in my hands to say I will be out there every single inning for the rest of the year.

Longtime Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, who signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the rival New York Yankees, met with the New York media for the first time this spring on Monday in Tampa. Roberts spoke fondly of his days in Baltimore, saying he thought he'd play his entire career in an Orioles uniform. He said he's spoken to several former Orioles teammates since joining the Yankees. “I always envisioned myself being an Oriole for my career,” Roberts told Yankees reporters.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts knew the significance of Wednesday's date. It marked the one-year anniversary of Roberts' last game, when his headfirst slide at Fenway Park triggered a second wave of concussion symptoms May 16, 2011. Roberts said Wednesday that he's thought about the date -- and about being out of the game for a full year -- but that it helps that he feels closer than ever to a return. “I thought about it a lot today, actually,” Roberts said before the Orioles' series opener in Kansas City.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, who, when healthy, has been a staple atop the team's batting order for more than a decade, will bat in the No. 9 spot on Opening Day and beyond. Roberts said he wasn't sure how permanent the move would be, but said he'd be hitting ninth “moving forward.” Orioles manager Buck Showalter met with Roberts before Thursday night's game -- in which the Orioles were facing their Opening Day opponent, the Tampa Bay Rays, and ace David Price -- to tell him. “It could be 162 games for all I know,” Roberts said.

PHOENIX - When Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts returned from right hamstring surgery that forced him to miss 80 games earlier this season, he knew it might take a while to regain his comfort in the batter's box. Roberts had his second multiple-RBI game of the season in Monday's 7-6 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks and he was 3-for-6 with three RBIs over his past two games heading into Tuesday night. "It's been a little bit of a see saw since I got back," Roberts said. "I've tried to be patient with it knowing that I felt really good coming out of spring training and had gotten in a reasonable flow of things coming into spring training.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, who has spent most of this season at the team's spring training facility in Sarasota, Fla., rehabbing a right hamstring injury, visited with the club Friday and hopes he can complete his rehabilitation with the team. Roberts had surgery May 9 in Dallas and was given an estimated recovery time of at least six weeks. Roberts said he's been doing some light jogging, playing catch, hitting off a tee and has progressed to hitting off coaches over the past few days.
