Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts (hamstring) will undergo surgery on his right hamstring Thursday, May 9, and he's expected to be out for another six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Roberts has had the absolute worst luck with injuries in the past several seasons, and this year has been no different. He still has plenty of time to make a comeback and play in the second half of this season, but don't bank on it. This only gives Ryan Flaherty and Alexi Casilla more rope at the keystone.

Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts (knee) took light batting practice Tuesday, May 7, but will visit with a specialist Wednesday, May 8, because his knee is still bothering him.
Fantasy Tip: We've heard this story before with Roberts. You shouldn't be shocked at this point. Leave Roberts on the waiver wire in mostly all leagues until he returns and proves he's healthy and producing, which is a BIG if.

Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts (knee) was able to throw from 75 feet Tuesday, April 30, and he also took some soft-toss swings. Manager Buck Showalter said he does not believe Roberts will need a stint on the 60-day disabled list.
Tue, 23 Apr 2013 13:38:49 -0700
Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts (knee) has yet to resume baseball activities, and it's unknown when he will.
Fantasy Tip: This is just another case of Roberts slowly coming back from another injury. Don't be surprised if his rehab drags on and on... He's only worth owning in deep AL-leagues at this point.

Most of the swelling in Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts' (knee) knee has gone down, but manager Buck Showalter hopes to have a better idea once the team returns home when Roberts could go on a rehab assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Continually remind yourself that Roberts is an excruciatingly slow healer and the fact that he's missed most of the past few seasons with various ailments. In mixed leagues, leave him on the waiver wire until he comes back and demonstrates that he's completely healthy again.

Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts (knee) did light jogging on an underwater treadmill Thursday, April 18, and it marks small improvement for Roberts.
Fantasy Tip: Even though Roberts won't be out for the season with this injury, it'll probably take him some time to return from it, as he's known as a very slow healer. Be patient in AL leagues. He's not worth a roster spot in most mixed leagues.
