Latest Update Brian Roberts will be designated for assignment by the Yankees. Thu Jul, 31, 04:37 PM
A quality switch-hitter and superb base runner, he's also a good contact hitter with solid pop in his bat. Does an excellent job of both getting on base and driving runs in from the keystone position.
Flaws: : Back and concussion issues are now a big concern. Strikes out too much for a table-setter. Despite being a switch-hitter, he has much less power batting from the right side. His glove has declined with age.
Just a regular day of rest for Roberts who has started 11 of the last 12 games . Brendan Ryan will work at the keystone on Sunday in his stead.Analyst: Howard Bender
Roberts' overall production hasn't exactly been stellar but given his injury history and statistical track record, he's probably right where most people expected him to be. While he's 12-for-35 (.343) over his last eight games, he's provided just the one home run along with just three RBI and five runs scored. It's not terrible, but it's not great. AL-only and extremely deep mixed leagues may afford him an opportunity in fantasy leagues, but that;s probably about it.Analyst: Howard Bender
Roberts extended his current hit streak to five games where he is hitting .454 (10-for-22) with a triple, five doubles, two RBI, four runs scored, and no strikeouts over that span. Pick him up while he is hot if you need some middle infield help.Analyst: Michael Pichan
