Roberts absent Wednesday with a sore neck

Brian Roberts was not present when the Orioles took the field on Wednesday morning as the starting second baseman is dealing with a neck issue.

He left the complex to take a precautionary X-ray, and it’s possible his neck stiffness –which reportedly started when he woke up this morning — could be related to his back.

I should have more details on him later this afternoon.  In Roberts’ place for infield work was Cesar Izturis. The Orioles resigned Izturis and a host of middle infielders: including Nick Green, and Brendan Harris, in part to provide insurance for Roberts. Robert Andino, who is competing for a bench spot, can also play second base.
