Orioles | Brian Roberts receives injections

Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts (back) received "trigger-point injections" in his back Friday, March 11, and is expected to undergo an MRI exam Saturday, March 12, according to The Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly. Manager Buck Showalter indicated that Roberts will be out until at least Tuesday, March 15. "He's got a lot of tests from previous times that we are able to compare it to, and there wasn't any real red flags today," Showalter said. "So we'll see how he plays in the next day or two but will probably let it quiet down for at least two or three days." Roberts has only played in four spring contests. IFs Cesar Izturis, Ryan Adams, Robert Andino, Brendan Harris and Nick Green can all play second base.
