SARASOTA, FLA. (AP) - Baltimore Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts has left the team’s spring training camp to receive x-rays for a sore neck.

Roberts says he woke up with a neck problem Wednesday morning. He was not able to participate in the full-squad workout following a team meeting.

This is the latest health issue for Roberts, who appeared in only 59 games in 2010 because of a variety of ailments. He reported to camp last year with a herniated disk in his back, and went on the disabled list after four games with a strained abdominal muscle. The Orioles transferred him to the 60-day DL on May 12.

The club’s leadoff hitter missed the final six games of the season because of headaches likely caused by a minor concussion.
