News: Roberts is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rays.

News: Roberts (back) is not in the lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader versus the Cubs, according to ESPN's Andrew Marchand. Impact: Roberts also missed Game 1 with what they are calling a strained lower back. He is considered to be day to day but the Yankees next travel to Tampa Bay and their artificial turf field, a surface that isn't exactly good for a bad back.(RotoWire, )

News: Roberts has been diagnosed with a lower back strain, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: Roberts received medication and suggested that he's feeling better and could play Wednesday if needed. While Roberts is not in the Game 1 lineup for the doubleheader with the Cubs, manager Joe Girardi could turn to him for the nightcap if he feels comfortable with the second baseman's health.(RotoWire, )

News: Roberts (back) will sit out Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Cubs, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: It's the third consecutive game Roberts will miss, with Yangervis Solarte picking up another start at second base in his stead. The Yankees' plan to open the season with a starting infield of four players 32 years and older has predictably backfired, as Mark Teixeira (hamstring) is on the DL while Roberts and Derek Jeter (quadriceps) have already missed several contests.(RotoWire, )

News: The MRI results on Roberts' back came back negative, according to Newsday's David Lennon. Impact: Roberts complained of lower back pain prior to Sunday's game, so the Yankees were just covering their bases with the MRI. The Yankees are off Monday and hope to have Roberts back in the lineup when they square off against the Cubs on Tuesday, but of course that may be wishful thinking when it comes to the oft-injured Roberts.(RotoWire, )

News: Roberts is dealing with a back issue, ESPN.com reports. Impact: GM Brian Cashman indicated that the severity of the injury has yet to be determined, but if the oft-injured Roberts is forced to miss time beyond Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Yangervis Solarte, Dean Anna and Kelly Johnson are all able to play second base.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 10, 2014
News: Roberts is not in the lineup Thursday agains the Red Sox, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: Roberts is typically the Yankees' second baseman, but will give way to Dean Anna against Clay Buchholz and the Red Sox. This is a somewhat surprising move by manager Joe Girardi, as Roberts is 10-for-25 against Buchholz in his career.(RotoWire, )
