Roberts on his progress

Brian Roberts (concussion) was with the team this afternoon and said he will stay around for a few days before heading back to Sarasota.

Here what he had to say about his progress and his timeline, which right now includes another two weeks of rest…

[on if yesterday’s appointment was encouraging news]:

“I think anytime that they say you’re getting better, that’s always good. Two weeks had gone by. If I went up there and he said, ‘Hmmm, you look about the same,’ I wouldn’t have been that thrilled. It’s never as fast as you want, but that’s part of every injury. It never goes as fast as you want.”

[on if the symptoms are gone:]
“If they were all gone, I’d probably hopefully be doing baseball stuff today, so they’re not all gone. We’re just trying to progress through some things to make sure that as I do the progressions that they’re not there anymore.”

[on if he will return before the All-Star break]
“We really haven’t put a timetable on it. It’s always one of the worst things you can do with an injury, put a timetable on it, because you start shooting for something and you get disappointed or whatever. It’s going to be whenever it is at this point.”

[on if the headaches are still there:]
“I’ve had some symptoms depending on the amount of stuff that I’ve done, which is to be expected in the recovery process of these things. Hopefully, they just continue to decrease as we go.”

[on if he might start doing baseball stuff when he sees the doctor again]
“I know it’s a cliché, but it’s really true in this one. We’re just taking it one step at a time and we haven’t talked at all about what’s past the next 10 days or two weeks. Once I go back to see him, then we’ll see where I am at that point and we’ll see what’s next.”
