Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts said Wednesday morning that he has more good days than bad in his recovery from multiple concussions.

Roberts is gradually beginning to do more baseball work on the back fields of the Ed Smith Stadium Complex. He's begun taking live batting practice from coaches, and for the past week he's been working with former Orioles shortstop Mike Bordick taking ground balls. He's also be doing running and stretching activities with special assistant Brady Anderson.

The next step in Roberts' progress -- which would seemingly be facing live pitching from teammates -- isn't clear.

"I don't know what the next step is," Roberts said. "When we get to point where I guess I feel like I'm to the point where the next step is we'll figure out what the next step is. Even when I was healthy, I wasn't hitting off live pitchers before I played in games. I never liked doing that anyways."
