(1/2/2008) The Orioles purchased OF Chris Roberson from the Phillies on Wednesday. A ninth-round pick in the 2001 amateur draft, Roberson made his major league debut in 2006.
Roberson might not stick
(10/2/2007) Despite Adam Eaton's big contract, the Phillies can't afford to pitch him in the playoffs. Eaton was left off Philadelphia's postseason roster for their first round-series against Colorado. The Phillies will use a four-man rotation, so Eaton didn't make the cut. "It's the best case for the team," Eaton said Tuesday. Eaton has made just two relief appearances in his eight-year career, so using him that way wasn't an option. "I had two bullpen appearances in '05 coming back from an injury and those didn't go well," Eaton said. "To throw in the emotion of the postseason and a situation you haven't been in before is a little tough for anybody. I would've done it if they asked me, but that wasn't in the cards."

GM Pat Gillick said he received several last-minute offers before Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline from other teams but decided to look internally. "We like the two guys that we've got," he said. "We thought they were better than anything that we could get out there. ... Both guys have speed and defense." Roberson was 4-for-4, including an RBI single in the second inning.

Roberson unlikely to make cut?
(3/21/2006) OF Chris Roberson remains in camp with the team, but it might be difficult for the Phillies to keep him as a fifth outfielder. He raised his spring average to .326 with a 3-for-5 performance Wednesday, and there are differing views in the front office over whether he could be effective as a fifth outfielder in the majors. Roberson, 26, has developed nicely as a raw talent, but he hasn't played above Double-A. Some members of the developmental staff believe Roberson could be an everyday outfielder in the majors by 2007, but they believe a year as a deep reserve in the majors could stunt his growth.
(3/5/2006) Abraham Nunez, Shane Victorino and Chris Roberson homered Saturday, powering a Philadelphia Phillies split-squad team past the Toronto Blue Jays 9-7.
Chris Roberson won't make roster
(2/17/2006) Michael Bourn and Chris Roberson aren't likely candidates to make the Phillies' roster out of spring training, but they are going to be watched closely. The speedy Double-A teammates are a big reason why the Phils were receptive to trade offers involving Bobby Abreu this winter.
