Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts was held out of Saturday night's game against Toronto with an abdominal strain, an injury that could land him on the 15-day disabled list.

Roberts was hurt Friday, when he stole second base in the first inning of a 7-6 loss to the Blue Jays. Roberts stayed in the game long enough to score, but he did not return for the second inning.
Manager Dave Trembley said Roberts was ``day to day,'' adding that the Orioles would delay making a roster move until Sunday at the earliest.
Trembley said the injury was not as severe as the team first thought, but there was still no way of knowing when Roberts would be available to play.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction have made the Orioles 60/1 long shots to win the 2010 World Series and 25/1 to win the AL Pennant. They’re also long shots at 20/1 to win the AL East and have an over/under of 74 for number of wins this season.
