Brian Roberts non-update

It’s my understanding that second baseman Brian Roberts hasn’t undergone a CT scan, and the club hasn’t scheduled one at this time.

Roberts has complained of headaches and dizziness since Sept. 27 in St. Petersburg, when he slammed his helmet with his bat after striking out in the ninth inning. He missed the last six games, but his condition must be improving.

Manager Buck Showalter spoke yesterday with head athletic trainer Richie Bancells.

“That was a possibility that they were going to do that, but I wouldn’t say it was a given that it was going to happen,” Showalter said. “If there’s any doubt, they’ll do it. If he has any lingering effects, there will be some tests along the way, I’m sure. We’ll err on the side of caution, but we feel like we’ve got our arms around it.”
