Brian Roberts' recovery from a dislocated left elbow is coming along well and the Baltimore Orioles' All-Star second baseman hopes to be on the field during spring training. ``I probably won't be going 100 percent by the first day of spring training,'' Roberts said. ``But if I'm ready to be playing by the middle of spring training, I think that's plenty of time.'' Roberts was injured when he and Bubba Crosby of the New York Yankees ran into each other while the Baltimore second baseman was covering first on a bunt in the second inning on Sept. 20. The injury looked gruesome, required surgery and ended Roberts' season. He finished with a .314 average, 18 homers and 73 RBIs as the Orioles' leadoff hitter. Roberts made the All-Star team for the first time. ``I'm trying to make progress every day,'' Roberts said. ``It's frustrating. You just try and stay positive. You can never predict two months from now. We're certainly positive that we're on schedule.''
