Brian Roberts leaves Orioles camp for X-rays on sore neck

7 Comments

Brian Roberts woke up this morning with a sore neck, so he skipped team workouts and Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that he left Orioles camp to undergo X-rays.

Roberts missed nearly the entire first half of last season with a herniated disk in his back and sat out the final week due to a concussion, but in between he hit .287 with a .763 OPS and 10 steals in 55 second-half games and came into spring training healthy at age 33.

For now Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com deems the X-rays “precautionary,” but also says “it’s possible his neck stiffness … could be related to his back.”
