Roberts wakes up with headaches, shelved for day

Some not so good news from Sarasota, Fla.

Brian Roberts woke up this morning with headaches and was told to hold off from "exertional and vestibular exercises" today.

He will be re-evaluated Thursday.

It's not considered a major setback because Roberts (concussion) still isn't cleared to do baseball activities. He is hoping to get that green light June 21 when he revisits concussion specialist Dr. Michael Collins in Pittsburgh.

"We hope we get to the point here before the 21st when he goes back [to Collins] that it is not an issue," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

One other injury note:

Justin Duchscherer (hip) will throw 60 to 70 pitches in extended spring training. After that outing, the club will decide what Duchscherer's next step is. The Gulf Coast League starts next week, meaning there will be no more extended games for Duchscherer to pitch in, so it's possible he could begin a rehab assignment in the near future.
