Report: Former Orioles infielder Brian Roberts to retire
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/17/14) Former Orioles infielder Brian Roberts is set to retire, according to MASN.
Roberts played 14 seasons in the majors, all but one of which came with Baltimore. He finished out his career with the Yankees last season. Roberts was elected to two All-Star teams during his tenure in Baltimore. He finished 18th in the MVP voting in 2005 after hitting .314/.387/.515. Injuries kept him down the last few seasons of his career. Roberts suffered two concussions, which contributed to him missing time in both 2010, 2011 and 2012.
He retires with a career .276/.347/.409 batting line over 5,531 at-bats.

Brian Roberts clubs four extra-base hits in win
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(7/4/14) The Yankees got a big performance out of infielder Brian Roberts Friday, in a 6-5 win over the Twins.
Coming off a pair of two-hit games over four games, Roberts went 4 for 5 Friday. He had three doubles and a triple, while driving in one run and scoring two in the win.
Roberts bumped his average up more than 10 points with Friday's performance, and is now hitting .248/.318/.384 in 250 at-bats.
|Brian Roberts didn't exactly return to prominence in 2013 -- he hit .249 with eight home runs, 12 doubles, and three steals -- but it's encouraging that he even returned, playing in 77 games after battling back from concussion-related symptoms and a hamstring injury. His 265 at-bats were the most since he had 632 in 2009. There's no clear indication of Roberts' role with the Yankees in 2014 -- he'll probably split time with Kelly Johnson at second base, but could work his way into more playing time, as Johnson bounces between occasional stints at third base and the outfield. Roberts, 36, is not likely to steal 50 bases -- or even 40, for that matter -- but it's not beyond reason to think he can steal 25 while hitting .275. This all depends on Roberts' ability to stay healthy, which is a huge factor in assessing his value, but there is some upside here. It's AL-only territory, but Roberts could turn out to be a decent $1 buy at middle infield.
