Orioles' Brian Roberts to have hamstring surgery

BALTIMORE - Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts will undergo surgery on his ailing right hamstring, a procedure that will add an extra six weeks to his time on the disabled list.

Roberts was placed on the DL with a strained right hamstring on April 5.
Unsatisfied with his recovery, Roberts visited Dr. Daniel Cooper in Dallas on Wednesday for a second opinion.
After the consultation, Roberts agreed to have surgery.
Cooper will attempt to repair a muscle in the hamstring at the Carrell Clinic on Thursday, according to the Orioles.
The 35-year-old Roberts played in only three games this season before hurting his hamstring, the latest in a series of injuries he's experienced over the past four years.
Roberts has played in only 118 games since the start of the 2010 season.
