Os reinstate Roberts
As expected, the Orioles reinstated second baseman Brian Roberts prior to Tuesday’s game against the Padres.
Danny Valencia was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk to clear a spot on the active roster for Roberts, who was on the paternity leave list over the weekend. The 35-year-old second baseman is batting .245/.283/.357 in 30 games for the Orioles and his wife Diana had their first child, a son, Jax, on Friday.
Valencia has hit .216/.256/.500 (16-for-74) with five homers and 10 RBI in 25 games for the Orioles.
