Brian Roberts is feeling better

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts has not played baseball since last May due to multiple concussions. And he missed all but 59 games in 2010 for the same reason. Earlier this month the outlook still seemed kinda grim.

There is some decent news now, though, as Roberts has continued to work out and is slowly getting back into something approaching a normal routine.  From an interview with Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com:

I haven’t had to take any days off, which is good.  [I’m] starting to continue to do a little more, starting to go out and watch some games and watch some innings and get in atmospheres and environments that I need to reacclimate to a little bit more …  it was good to get out there and kind of see some game speed stuff, track the ball and be in that sort of environment again.

It’s not a lot, but Roberts sounds at least somewhat hopeful.

    Wonder if he’s taken the “head first slide into first base” out of his repertoire?

      Lets hope he’s taken the “Hit my head with a bat” our of his repertoire.

      I expect him to play a few games this season, be a shell of his former self, and hang it up before next season.

    he started all the concussions by hitting himself in the head with a bat. Its his own fault
