Orioles manager Buck Showalter still hadn’t posted his lineup before meeting with reporters at 1:30 p.m., but he told us that second baseman Brian Roberts hasn’t been cleared to play today.
Roberts was examined yesterday by a team physician because of recurring headaches. He tried to work out on the field with head athletic trainer Richie Bancells earlier today, but the session didn’t go well enough for him to play. He’ll be re-evaluated tomorrow.
I’m heading back downstairs to check the lineup board.
