Bringing Brian Back: It's still way too early to predict how Brian Roberts will fare during the 20-day rehab assignment he began Wednesday night in Bowie, but it's still a hopeful sign that he's playing again and could be back on the active roster in three weeks or so. If he comes back to be anything close to his former baseball self, he would be a major addition to the lineup and would allow Robert Andino to shore up the infield defense at third base or become the super utility guy that Showalter always has envisioned. If he doesn't, that would be sad and disappointing, but the upside here is way, way up.
