Brian Roberts was expected to bat leadoff and play second base tonight, but it was just announced that he has been scratched from the lineup and replaced by Julio Lugo.

Roberts is not feeling well, but an Orioles' official wasn't sure about the specifics of his illness.

The flu bug appears to be traveling around the Orioles' clubhouse because both Chris Tillman and Rick VandenHurk are under the weather. I'm not sure if that's what Roberts has or not, though he was present for the team stretch and in the clubhouse before the game.

Without Roberts, the Orioles will face left-hander David Price, who opposes a lineup that includes Lugo, Robert Andino, Josh Bell, Jake Fox and Nolan Reimold.
