08:12 AM ET 07.12 | Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts has a decision to make. [Roberts] is still considering his options after receiving a second opinion on his injured hip earlier this week, a club source said. Roberts was diagnosed with a right labral hip tear after returning to Baltimore from the west coast. ... Roberts visited a hip specialist in Atlanta to seek a second opinion. Roberts is deciding whether he will opt for surgery, which would take at least two months of recovery time, or try to rehab the injury on his own. The 34-year-old Roberts made an emotional return from a 13-month absence from multiple concussions last month, but his return lasted just 17 games. He has played in just 115 games since the beginning of the 2010 season.

Roberts if I would you I would rehab the injury to try to show the O's you have something left in the tank.
