Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts worked out at the team’s Spring Training Complex in Sarasota on Monday afternoon, taking swings in the covered batting cages and throwing with shortstop J.J. Hardy.
Roberts has also been doing tee work and short toss hitting drills, according to manager Buck Showalter, who said the infielder has also been getting work done at the team’s Minor League facility at Twin Lakes Park. Roberts is recovering from a concussion and has been sidelined for most of the past two seasons with his recovery and rehab updates sporadic at best.
Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette did say Monday that the second baseman is on a “physical progression” although he acknowledged that the organization still doesn’t know if Roberts will have the tolerance and capability to do certain things.

Very good news. Not expecting him to be ready for games anytime soon, but it's very encouraging considering just about a month ago the doctors instructed him to skip FanFest.
