|Ryan Roberts sent down to Triple-A|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(6/16/13) The Rays have optioned second baseman Ryan Roberts to Triple-A Durham in order to clear room for outfield prospect Wil Myers following Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Royals, The Tampa Tribune reports.
Roberts, who usually saw at-bats against lefties, hit .238 with three homers and 13 RBI in 126 at-bats while in the majors.

(5/17/13) Rays second baseman Ryan Roberts hit his third home run in Thursday's loss against Boston.
The solo home run was Roberts's only hit of the game. His batting line is up to .253/.311/.400, which, as unimpressive as it looks, is right around the second base average of .261/.320/.394. Expect Roberts to keep seeing at-bats against left-handed pitching for now.

(5/5/13) After batting .103 (3 for 29) in his previous eight games, Rays infielder Ryan Roberts showed some life at the plate in Sunday's series finale against the Rockies. He went 2 for 4 with two RBI in the 8-3 loss.
The 32-year-old singled in the fourth inning before knocking in two with a double in the sixth.
Roberts is batting .236 with two homers and seven RBI.
|No need to look at Ryan Roberts|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/27/13) With the exception of a glorious two-homer day against CC Sabathia, Rays second baseman Ryan Roberts has been a non-entity this season. Despite a .241 batting average and only four extra-base hits in 54 at-bats, Roberts has remained on our most-viewed players list in recent days.
Roberts' two home run game was Monday, so Fantasy owners are probably seeing him pop up as one of the top contributors over the last seven days. Unfortunately, he is 1 for 15 in four games since the home runs, so there is little reason to pick the veteran up.
Roberts had 19 home runs in 2011, but that is looking like an outlier in his career as he has just 24 home runs in 1,000 plate appearances otherwise. Fantasy owners should probably pay him no mind outside of AL-only formats.
|Late-blooming Ryan Roberts didn't get an extended opportunity to play regularly until 2011, at the age of 30, but in that season, he showed that the decent power numbers he put up in the minors were no fluke. The 19 homers that Roberts hit in the '11 season helped him to be among the top 10 second basemen and third basemen in Fantasy. However, in 2012, Roberts' power dissipated, and by July, the Diamondbacks were ready to try other options (namely, Ryan Wheeler and Chris Johnson) at third base. Getting dealt to the Rays a week before the trade deadline, he settled in as Tampa Bay's second baseman. In his 60 games with the Rays, he did experience a power resurgence, though he batted .214. With the signing of free agent second baseman Kelly Johnson, Roberts appears to be out of a starting job for 2013, though he could see ample playing time against left-handed starting pitchers. That part-time role, however, should relegate Roberts to AL-only leagues. (Updated 1/28/13)|
