Brian Roberts, who suffered a right knee contusion when he was hit by a Jason Frasor pitch in the eighth inning Monday, will not be in tonight's lineup. He'll be replaced at second base by Robert Andino.
Roberts could be available if the Orioles need him later in the game. He hit a little in the indoor batting cages, but he's hobbling a little on the knee.
Infielder Julio Lugo said that he got good news from the magnetic resonance imaging that he had performed today to try to determine the cause of persistent headaches. He said the headaches are more of a result of an infection he has, and not getting hit in the head by a pick-up throw Aug.29.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter described Lugo's injury as sinusitis.
