ORIOLES IN THE NEWS Nolan Reimold, who started out the season on fire, looking like he was going to be a mixed league force in the outfield, continues to linger on the sidelines with that herniated disk in his neck (the pain has subsided, but there is still weakness in the area). Tuesday he was moved from the 15 day DL to the 60 day DL pushing back his return to action even farther. The move had to be made to activate, wait for it, Brian Roberts. You know, the former All-Star who used to steal 30 bases, hit .290, and score 90 runs a year. Roberts is being thrust right into the leadoff role Tuesday in his first game of the season as the Birds want to see if he is truly over the concussion woes that have plagued him for a couple of years now. Roberts last appeared in 60 games in the 2009 season, so he's far from a lock as someone you have to add in a 10 or 12 team mixed league, but if you're in a 15 team mixed, or if you're in an AL-only league, Roberts is someone that s...

Roberts returns to Orioles after 13-month layoff

Brian Roberts has returned to the Baltimore Orioles after being out for 13 months with a concussion. The Orioles planned to activate the two-time All-Star second baseman from the 60-day disabled list on Tuesday. He was penciled into the lineup at his customary leadoff spot against the Pittsburgh Pirates - although wet weather threatened to delay Roberts' season debut for at...

At long last, Roberts returns for O's

Orioles' Roberts set to return after year-long absence

Many thought he'd never play again, yet barring a last-minute setback, second baseman Brian Roberts is due to return to the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday. Roberts, who suffered a concussion in September 2010 and another in May 2011, wrapped up his rehab assignment Sunday and is expected to rejoin the 25-man roster Tuesday after spending the past year on the disabled list. ...

Orioles' Roberts goes 3-for-4 in emotional return to majors

Give the Baltimore Orioles a leadoff hitter, and watch the offense come to life. Brian Roberts returned to the team Tuesday, playing in a major league game for the first time since May 16, 2011. The veteran went 3-for-4 from the leadoff spot, sparking an offense that had 15 hits in an 8-6 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Every Oriole who appeared in Tuesday's game reached...

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...

Brain Roberts returns

On Wednesday Brian Roberts completed a long road back from injury making his first start with the Orioles since May 16, 2011. I never thought I would be writing those words this year. I honestly doubted I would ever write those words again. Brian Roberts' recovery was so long and his body seemed so delicate this spring that I never thought he would get back to Camden Yards....

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...

The Return of Brian Roberts

Last night, the Orioles won their third straight game in a row as they defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in interleague action, by a score of 8-6. Wei-Yin Chen (6-2) won another game – he went 6 1/3 innings, gave up four runs, Adam Jones had four hits, along with his 18th homer of the year; in addition, Mark Reynolds and Chris Davis went deep. Jim Johnson got his 19th save of the...

Orioles 8, Pirates 6

Brian Roberts returned from a 13-month layoff to get three hits and an RBI, and the Baltimore Orioles homered three times in an 8-6 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night. Activated from the 60-day disabled list before the game, Roberts went 3 for 4 with a sacrifice fly. Playing in the majors for the first time since sustaining a concussion on May 16, 2011, Baltimore...

MLB gets stringent with concussions

Football remains the flash point for the still-evolving discussion of concussions and brain injuries in American sports. Last week saw the latest development, as litigation involving thousands of former players coalesced into a master complaint against the NFL. The issue is less prevalent in baseball, where the risk of neurologic injury is dramatically lower. But the awareness of...
