Orioles | Brian Roberts to come off DL Sunday

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts (hamstring) is scheduled to join the team Saturday, June 29. He will then be activated from the 15-day disabled list Sunday, June 30. Roberts was lifted after five innings from his rehab game with Triple-A Norfolk Friday, June 28, but it was due to wet conditions. Manager Buck Showalter checked to make sure the early departure wasn't due to a physical reason.

Fantasy Tip: Roberts has a propensity for injury, and fantasy owners have to be awfully concerned about that. However, he is a solid play in all AL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats since he is expected to see regular at-bats.
