The Baltimore Orioles are interested in re-signing 2B Brian Roberts to a one-year deal. If they don't, they think 2B Ryan Flaherty is ready for a bigger role. "The way they do the metrics they profile him out as hitting 20 home runs at second base and playing pretty good defense. That's a pretty good combo. We have Jemile (Weeks), we have the potential of (prospect) Jonathan Schoop. First and foremost, we have the potential of Brian Roberts. So, I like our options," manager Buck Showalter said.

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.
