Roberts officially out of FanFest; O's make changes to autograph schedule

Brian Roberts will not be at FanFest, following his doctor's advice involving his concussion symptoms, but the Orioles have filled his autograph slots with two pitchers in each instance.

The Orioles have added Brian Matusz and Alfredo Simon to the 11:20 a.m. signing that also includes infielder Ryan Adams and reliever Jason Berken.

The 2 p.m. slot, which had sold out before Roberts canceled, will feature Simon and reliever Jim Johnson as well as previously scheduled lefty Troy Patton and manager Buck Showalter.

The Orioles have also added four more people to the autograph sessions: relievers Pedro Strop and Darren O'Day, minor league infielder Joe Mahoney and former Orioles outfielder Al Bumbry.

For additional questions about the changes, fans can contact 888-848-BIRD and ask to speak to a representative.
