SARASOTA, Fla. - Second baseman Brian Roberts is hitting off a tee in the covered batting cage at the Ed Smith Stadium complex.
Roberts is hitting from both sides.
At this point in camp, his every move is newsworthy.
A few reporters are staking out the cage, hoping to get a quick interview.
Also, Ryan Adams is here.
Update: Roberts said he’ll speak to the media on Friday. He’s been hitting off a tee, playing catch and lifting weights. No running or taking ground balls.
“That’s kind of our progression right now,” he said.
