|Brian Roberts goal is to 'be prepared to play' every day |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/17/14) Yankees second baseman Brian Roberts has missed 445 games the past four seasons due to abdominal, hip, concussion and hamstring issues. However, he's excited about hopefully being a regular in the lineup and staying off the disabled list in his first season with New York.
"I try to take it one day at a time," the 36-year-old Roberts said, per MLB.com. "[Manager] Joe [Girardi] and I talked a little bit, and we have some expectations, but we haven't put too much on it right now. ... My goal is to come in every day and be prepared to play. Whatever he wants to do, if my name is in the lineup, I'll be ready to go."
|Yankees would like to play Brian Roberts 'pretty often' at 2B |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/13/14) Although Brian Roberts is coming off four straight injury plagued seasons, Yankees manager Joe Girardi hopes to use the veteran infielder on a regular basis at second base in 2014.
"I think he can help us a lot," Girardi said, per The Journal News. "I think it’s something, I’ll sit down and have a conversation and try to get a feel what he thinks the optimal level of games that he’s going to play, but we’d like to play him pretty often."
|Brian Roberts to sign one-year deal with Yankees |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(12/17/13) The Yankees are expected to sign second baseman Brian Roberts to a one-year deal according to FoxSports.com.
Roberts is expected to make about $2 million, but can earn more based on whether he earns incentives. Roberts hit .249/.312/.392 in 265 at-bats last season. He has not played in over 100 games in a single season since 2009.
|Report: Yankees to sign Brian Roberts |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/17/13) The Yankees are expected to sign free-agent second baseman Brian Roberts, reports FOXSports.com Monday. Terms of the deal are not yet known.
The oft-injured infielder actually appeared in 77 games for the Orioles last year, his best total since 2009. He hit .249/.312/.392 with eight home runs and 39 RBI in 265 at-bats, while playing 60 games in the field.

Second base tiers for Draft Day 2014
The second base position will once again challenge owners on Draft Day. Our Scott White lays out his strategies and tiers for the position for 2014.
|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.
