MLB Injury News:
Baltimore Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts hit the
disabled list at the beginning of the season with a right hamstring strain. The
veteran is now walking without a limp, but manager Buck Showalter told
reporters – including Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun – that “it’s going to
be a challenge” for Roberts to return from the disabled list when he’s
Roberts suffered his injury while attempting to steal a base
during an April 4 contest against the Tampa Bay Rays. He had to be carried off
the field, but the O’s considered it good news when he was only diagnosed with
a right hamstring strain.
While Roberts is walking around unimpeded, he still hasn’t
been cleared to resume baseball activities. For this reason, Showalter believes
it would be a reach to think Roberts will be ready to return when he’s eligible
to come off the DL on April 20.
Roberts showed flashes of his former self to start the year,
as he went 5-fo-12 at the plate batting at the bottom of Baltimore’s order.
Still, it seems like the injury bug hasn’t fully left him, and it will be
interesting to see when – likely not if – it bites again following his return.
