From the Orioles.com: Brian Roberts took another step forward in his progression on Tuesday afternoon, taking pregame batting practice and participating in infield drills with the team prior to the 1:05 p.m. ET matchup against the Rays.

"It's good to see him with the team. I know it means a lot to him," manager Buck Showalter said of Roberts, who has been taking batting practice (off the coaches) and doing infield work on the back fields.
Roberts, who has been sidelined since May with a concussion, has maintained throughout his recovery that there is no timetable for his return. He is taking every day as prescribed, and there wasn't any difference in that stance following Tuesday's activities.
