O’s Roberts still at least three weeks away
Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts has been sidelined since April 9 -- pretty much all season -- with a strained abdominal muscle. According to the Baltimore Sun, he “remains at least three weeks away from returning to the lineup, and that’s probably the best case scenario.”
As of now, season-ending surgery is not an option. But that could change. The Orioles have started 6-18 this year without their spark plug and are buried in a star-studded American League East. It makes no sense, then, for the O’s to rush Roberts back. An ugly situation in Baltimore is only getting uglier.
