Orioles' officials are shooting down rumors of a Brian Roberts' trade in the near-term. Andy MacPhail says there is zero truth to speculation that the second baseman is about to be dealt. He says the likelihood of a trade before the New Year is remote. MacPhail isn't ruling out the possibility Roberts could be moved in the future, saying it's something that would take time. The 30-year-old admitted to one-time use of steroids a few days after being named in the Mitchell Report.
