Updates on Roberts, Duchscherer, Lee
Some pieces of news coming from Buck Showalter’s meeting with the media.
Second baseman Brian Roberts is having an MRI on his ailing back at 3:30 this afternoon. He will meet with his specialist tomorrow at 9 a.m. and go over the results. It’s the same doctor who worked with Roberts in 2010.
Right-handed pitcher Justin Duchscherer is having a MRA on his left hip at 4 p.m. today. He has already been to the chiropractor this morning. An MRA, for those who want to know, is like a MRI except arthrogram dye is injected into the joint. It gives a more specific readout -- if the dye spills out, it is an indication of damage.
First baseman Derrek Lee (right wrist) hit off a tee today. Tomorrow, he will hit soft toss with the hopes of live batting practice tomorrow.
