If you had Brian Roberts being healthy for 12 games before ultimately being injured before Game 13, then congratulations. You’d be correct.
According to George A. King III of the New York Post, Roberts was scheduled to start against the Red Sox tonight but was scratched due to a back injury. Yangervis Solarte had the start instead. Brian Cashman won’t say the severity of the injury but he did say Robert’s back is what ultimately kept him out of the lineup.
Roberts hasn’t played a full season since 2009, being plagued with injuries since then.
I’ll put any new information on the situation in this post, so stay tuned for more news.
— Brian Roberts had an MRI and the results came back negative. He’ll be re-evaluated in a few days.
