After undergoing season-ending surgery last August to repair a torn labrum in his right hip, Brian Roberts went under the knife again last month. According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, Roberts required surgery to repair a sports hernia on December 20 after he felt some discomfort and inflammation in his abdominal area.
While it would certainly be better news if he didn’t need the surgery at all, Roberts says he’s fully recovered and has already resumed baseball activities.
“If I was going to have any type of surgery, it’s probably the best one to have,” said Roberts, who talked with Matusz and Markakis before the procedure. “I knew it really wasn’t going to affect me much.”
Injuries have limited Roberts to a total of 115 games over the past three seasons, but he expects to be a “full go” for spring training. The 35-year-old is entering the final year of a four-year, $40 million contract with the Orioles.
