Orioles | Brian Roberts could return before All-Star break

Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts (hamstring) said it's realistic to expect him to return before the All-Star break. He's been performing baseball activities and building up strength in his hamstring after surgery. Roberts has been running, playing catch and recently went from hitting off a tee to taking batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: Roberts hasn't played a full season since 2009. He's an injury risk, and that's an extreme understatement. It wouldn't be a surprise for him to miss his timetable of returning before the All-Star break, and the O's have no incentive to rush him. Ryan Flaherty and Alexi Casilla have been splitting time at the keystone. They'll lose their value when B-Rob returns, but that likely won't come anytime soon.
