BOSTON - Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts was scratched from last night's lineup because of a strained right rotator cuff, and the team isn't sure of the injury's severity or how long it will keep him off the field. Roberts woke up yesterday morning and noticed the discomfort, similar to the type that caused him to miss exactly two weeks' worth of exhibition games. "He said it's similar but not to as great a magnitude," trainer Richie Bancells said. That brings little comfort to a team that has three position players on the disabled list - Javy Lopez, Larry Bigbie and Luis Matos - and went 16 games without Sammy Sosa.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles minor leaguer Matt Hobgood, the fifth-overall pick in the 2009 draft, threw his first bullpen session of the spring and just his second since season-ending rotator-cuff surgery 11 months ago on Sunday morning at the Buck O'Neil Baseball Complex at Twins Lakes Park. He threw a brief pen session in instructional league in October. Hobgood, who has been limited to 42 games in his minor league career because of inconsistency and injury, said he's pitching pain free for the first time in nearly four years.

The Orioles' pressing need for outfield help became much clearer yesterday when the club confirmed it will likely be without Chris Richard through next season's All-Star break because of rotator cuff surgery performed on his left shoulder earlier this month. Richard, a regular presence in the middle of the Orioles' batting order last season, required a major repair of an area that prevented him from playing the outfield after Sept. 8. Anaheim Angels orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum performed the surgery to repair a partial tear.

A.J. Foyt, Indy car racing's all-time winningest driver (67) and championship record holder (7), is now 77. He's had open heart surgery, and in January went through an illness that nearly killed him. But here he is, alive, opinonated and planning to get his race team back among the top teams in the IndyCar Series. In a recent one-on-one interview Foyt talked about many things, among them why the 1977 Indy 500 win was special to him beyond making him the first driver to win the race four times, the recent announcement that he'll field a car for minority driver Chase Austin in the Indianapolis 500 next May and a recent staph infection following same-day surgeries to remove bone spurs from his artificial knee and repair a rotator cuff.

Quarterback Steve McNair will have surgery on his partially torn rotator cuff today, ending one of the worst seasons of his 13-year NFL career and perhaps concluding his run with the Ravens. McNair, 34, who was placed on injured reserve yesterday, will have his left (nonthrowing) shoulder repaired at a Baltimore hospital. Kyle Boller, who started his third straight game last night, is expected to remain the starter for the rest of the season. This is the earliest McNair's season has ended - despite his history of injuries, he surprisingly had never been placed on injured reserve - but it's unknown whether his time with the Ravens is over.

Former Orioles top pick Matt Hobgood, who has battled ineffectiveness and injury in his brief pro career, will have right rotator-cuff surgery April 2 and is expected to miss all of the 2012 season. The 21-year-old Hobgood, whom the Orioles selected in the first round (fifth overall) in 2009, was shut down earlier this month with shoulder discomfort, something that previously has hampered him in his career. He was examined by Dr. Craig Morgan earlier this week and surgery to repair the shoulder was recommended, according to John Stockstill, the Orioles' director of player development.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - With Omar Daal headed back to the disabled list and possibly facing arthroscopic shoulder surgery, the Orioles moved forward yesterday with plans to pick Matt Riley or Erik Bedard as their No. 5 starter. Daal underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam Wednesday, and Orioles physician Dr. Charles Silberstein detected nothing more than some slight fraying of the rotator cuff in Daal's left shoulder - "typical pitcher things," Orioles executive vice president Jim Beattie said.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Orioles pitcher Kris Benson will put off surgery to repair his torn right rotator cuff and instead undergo a rehabilitation process, which could last a month, in a final attempt to pitch in 2007, a baseball source said last night. Dr. James Andrews examined Benson's shoulder yesterday in Birmingham, Ala. It was the third opinion sought by the Orioles' pitcher. A member of the New York Mets' medical staff recently recommended that Benson have surgery, but Andrews provided a small glimmer of hope.

California Angels right-hander Bert Blyleven underwent his second shoulder operation in less than a year yesterday and will require at least nine months of rehabilitation, the team said. The surgery began as an arthroscopic procedure, but orthopedists Lewis Yocum and Frank Jobe discovered that Blyleven, 40, had suffered further tearing in his right rotator cuff since an operation last fall.* CUBS: Rick Sutcliffe is back, and manager Don Zimmer said he will be reactivated tomorrow and will start at Pittsburgh that night.

Fans who haven't already given up on Matt Hobgood can check out the Orioles' 2009 first-round draft pick this summer in Aberdeen, where he is trying to salvage his 2011 season after being sidelined for most of it with a strained rotator cuff in his throwing arm. The 20-year-old right-hander made his first start for the Single-A IronBirds over the weekend, and he is scheduled to start Thursday night's game at Brooklyn. Hobgood allowed three runs (two earned) and five hits in four innings on Saturday, striking out three batters in a 4-3 loss to Vermont.

With two young left fielders vying for playing time, the Orioles devised an initial blueprint for the start of the season: Use Felix Pie on the Tropicana Field turf while Nolan Reimold continues rehabilitating his surgically repaired left Achilles tendon. Let Reimold be the designated hitter in the third game of the season and then have him play in the field once the club gets back to Camden Yards. That carefully scripted plan lasted a day. Pie was scratched from Wednesday's lineup with a strained left rotator cuff, forcing Reimold to start in left earlier than expected.

So you've had a nagging pain in your right shoulder ever since you aced the final set against your former college roommate? It perhaps is little consolation to learn that you are far from being alone. Indeed, an estimated 20 percent of Americans will have shoulder pain of some type in their lifetimes, says Dr. Steve A. Petersen, co-director of the division of shoulder surgery at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine's Department of Orthopedic Surgery. Annually, about 4 million Americans will seek medical care for aches, strains, arthritis or trauma to their shoulders.

JUPITER, FLA. -- Two weeks into his rehabilitation program, Orioles pitcher Kris Benson is experiencing an increase in soreness that could accelerate his decision to undergo surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff. Benson had indicated he would wait a month before re-evaluating his shoulder, bringing him to the halfway point yesterday. Though he has been able to strengthen the muscles around the tear, the recurring pain has rekindled his original concerns. "I had a rough couple days," he said.
