For now - and pending an MRI - Brian Roberts remains listed among the Orioles reserves. But as I mentioned in an update to my previous post, infielder Yamaico Navarro has arrived at Camden Yards, and there’s a locker and uniform waiting for him.

Update: Roberts’ MRI was moved up to 10 a.m. and the Orioles are waiting for the results before making a decision on his status.

Manager Buck Showalter is hoping that Navarro will be catching a ride back to Triple-A Norfolk, but the DL still seems like a strong possibility.

I’ll have more from Showalter in my next blog entry. He just finished his pregame media session.

For the Twins

Willingham LF
Morneau 1B

Plouffe 3B
Parmalee RF
Dozier 2B
