Here’s the latest.
- Brian Roberts is not in Orioles’ camp today; he’s gone to a local hospital for a stomach ailment. Roch Kubatko does not believe he’s secretly been traded.
- Roberts will make no trade demands.
- Ken Rosenthal says the chances of a Roberts trade "seem to diminish each day." Rosenthal cites Roberts’ relationship with Peter Angelos, and wonders whether the Orioles could wait until July to get more teams involved. If a Cubs deal does occur, Ronny Cedeno is highly likely to be included.
- Three days ago, ESPN’s Peter Gammons wrote that the Cubs refuse to part with Felix Pie or Jose Ceda for Roberts. Also, many MLBTR readers have speculated that the Orioles no longer have use for any of the Cubs’ outfielders.
