SARASOTA, Fla. | Baltimore Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts said Wednesday he is better, two days after feeling ill. He said he wasn’t sure if the illness was due to a medication given during his rehabilitation for a back injury.

Roberts, who led the American League with 56 doubles last season, has yet to play this spring. To speed his recuperation from the back injury, Orioles medical personnel gave him some medication on Sunday. On Monday night, he reported feeling ill.

Roberts said he hopes to resume some baseball activities on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said he expected Roberts to be ready for Opening Day on Apr. 6, but admitted concern.

Roberts said he thought the situation wasn’t ideal but he’d be ready for the team’s first game.
