Here's a running list with injury updates around the Major Leagues: – Second baseman Brian Roberts could rejoin the Orioles tomorrow according to Roch Kubatko of MASN. The decision depends on whether Roberts experiences any setbacks today while playing in the Orioles' Triple-A team or not. “I don't know,”manager Buck Showalter said. “I'm not sure how he felt physically last night. We haven't gotten that complete return. He played for an extended period, and he's supposed to play again today. After Sunday, that was the day we were going to sit down. We'll probably talk on Monday because we don't have anything scheduled minor league-wise after Sunday. “As far as where he's playing and what position he's hitting and all that stuff, I haven't made that lineup out yet.” – Alexi Ogando suffered a right groin strain yesterday and according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, the prognosis is “not good” and he could be close to the Disabled List. “Tomorrow I will get an MRI but right now it doesn’t feel good,” said Ogando. – Doug Fister, who is on the DL with a side strain won't be ready to come off the Disabled List and pitch against the Cubs Wednesday reports Chris Iott of M-Live.com. Manager Jim Leyland said that Fister had a “great” throwing session Saturday, but on Sunday he ruled out the possibility of Fister coming off the DL to pitch Wednesday. “He's stiff and a little sore,” Leyland said. “He's definitely not going to pitch Wednesday. That's the only information I can give you on him. He will not pitch Wednesday. We were hoping for that, but that's not going to happen.” Image by Keith Allison under the Creative Commons License.

Orioles' Roberts returns, in lineup Tuesday

Brian Roberts is in the Orioles' preliminary starting lineup Tuesday night and playing second base. The Orioles didn't immediately announce a corresponding roster move. Roberts, 34, was expected to be added to the roster for this week's series against the Pirates, but it wasn't clear whether he'd be in the lineup immediately. Roberts suffered his second concussion...

Rangers RHP Ogando out 4-6 weeks with groin strain

Texas Rangers right-hander Alexi Ogando is expected to miss four to six weeks with a strained right groin. The Rangers placed Ogando on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, two days after he was hurt while running to first base on a bunt single at San Francisco. Ogando had thrown three perfect innings in his first start of the season in place of lefty Derek Holland, who is on the DL...

Rangers' Ogando may go on DL with groin injury

Texas Rangers starter Alexi Ogando left Sunday's game against the Giants after three innings because of a strained right groin. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI and may be placed on the disabled list, depending on the results of the MRI. Ogando retired all nine hitters he faced, but he injured himself while beating out a sacrifice bunt for a single while batting in the top...

Was Brian Roberts The Best AL Second Baseman Of The Aughts?

Brian Roberts is set to play tonight for the first time in 13 months, so what better time to dust off some three-year-old, half-baked research? I put this together in the fall of 2009 to see where B-Rob ranked among the best 2B of the past decade, and I don’t know why I didn’t post it then. But here it is, the top 2B of the ’00s ranked by WAR (with OPS+ and plate appearances...

Ogando DL verdict could come Tuesday

Alexi Ogando was perfect on the mound but oh so imperfect on the bases Sunday. So Monday, he had an MRI on his strained right groin, and Texas Rangers fans await the results and a decision about the disabled list. A pitcher who's not used to running bases got hurt running bases, and he was pulled after three perfect innings in Texas' 5-0 win over the Giants in San Francisco...

Rangers place Ogando on DL

ARLINGTON, Texas The Texas Rangers have put right-hander Alexi Ogando on the 15-day disabled list and recalled left-hander Michael Kirkman from Round Rock. Ogando strained his right groin beating out a bunt during Sundays 5-0 victory over San Francisco. The move is retroactive to Monday. Ogandos next start likely would have been Saturday. The Rangers starter for that game against...

Brian Roberts returns to Orioles

Soon after a concussion interrupted his baseball career, Brian Roberts was more concerned with simply living a normal life than returning to the game he loves. ''There were times throughout the process that the future looked so bleak,'' the Baltimore Orioles second baseman said Tuesday, hours before he was to play his first major league game in 13 months. Roberts...

Orioles reinstate 2B Brian Roberts from 60-day disabled list

With Brian Roberts coming back tonight, infielder Steve Tolleson was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. We will be watching to see what Roberts does in his return; however, Tolleson did a decent job while up with the Orioles and had a few big hits. Tolleson was a victim of the numbers game, and since Ryan Flaherty is a Rule 5 guy, he can't be sent down. I would imagine Tolleson...

Rangers' Ogando to miss 4-6 weeks

Rangers right-handed pitcher Alexi Ogando is likely to miss 4-6 weeks with a strained right groin. Ogando, 28, joined Derek Holland and Pedro Feliz on the disabled list Monday after an MRI showed a muscle tear in his right groin.
