The Baltimore Orioles could be without their star second baseman for quite some time.  He said he felt a pop when he was injured on a steal attempt.  Generally a pop means a tear.  If Roberts tore his hamstring, he will be sidelined for months. According to Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun, Roberts was attempting a steal of second base when he felt pain in the bottom part of his hamstring.  Roberts had to be helped off the field, and Encina says he will undergo an MRI tomorrow.  If the injury is significant, Roberts will miss another home opener for the Orioles. “Just the bottom part of the hamstring [is] where he felt it,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after the game. “It's early. ... [I’m] not going to say he's going to be able to play [Friday]. “We'll reassess it [Friday]and see where we are. He's in some discomfort.” Roberts has had a run of bad luck in the injury department.  Here's a quick rundown of his recent injuries: January, 2010 - Herniated disc February, 2010 - Back spasms April, 2010 - Abdominal strain August, 2010 - Hip strain September, 2010 - Concussion February, 2011 - Neck soreness March, 2011 - Back spasms May, 2011 - Concussion July, 2012 - Right hip surgery December, 2012 - Sports hernia surgery Roberts is a game changer.  However, he has not been healthy long enough recently to help the Orioles change anything.  Baltimore has turned their fates around, but they've done it mostly without Roberts.  He played just 17 games last season. In his career, Roberts is a .280/.351/.414 hitter.  He is a two-time All-Star and has always shown All-Star potential throughout his career.  Hopefully the hamstring injury is not as serious as it sound.  But it sounds pretty bad.
