Roberts taking things 'day by day'

Among the Orioles attending the annual children’s holiday party at Dave & Buster’s at the Arundel Mills Mall on Tuesday was second baseman Brian Roberts, who is attempting to come back from a concussion that limited him to just 39 games in 2011.

“I’m just going day by day trying to do a little more,” said Roberts, who first suffered the concussion in September 2010, when he tapped himself on the helmet with a bat after an at-bat. “Just taking it slow and trying to get better every day. That’s about all I can tell you, really.”

Although he said this fall that he was pain-free for two consecutive weeks for the first time since the original incident, Roberts wasn’t as forthcoming about his health on Tuesday, saying he was “feeling OK, I’m feeling fine.”

He didn’t want to put on a timetable on his recovery or make predictions on when he would be back to 100 percent.

“I’m taking it one day at a time. Seriously, I’m not saying that in a bad way,” Roberts said. “That’s where my life is right now. I feel like that’s the best way to handle it. I can’t look three months from now, and I can’t look three months back. I can take today and I can take this week and I’m very focused on what I’m trying to accomplish and what I’m doing, but that’s really all I can look at at this point.”
