As reported by Igor Mello of CBSSports.com, Roberts was replaced in the lineup with Yangervis Solarte, who went 0-for-3 with a run scored and a walk. Roberts will get a day off tomorrow before the Yankees begin a three-game series against the Blue Jays. There is no word whether or not Roberts will be ready for the start of that series.
Roberts, in his 14th Major League season, is in his first season with the Yankees. He's batting .238 with two home runs and 14 RBI in 193 at bats this season. Roberts' best overall season was in 2005 when he batted .314 with 18 home runs and 73 RBI. He's a career .277 hitter with 94 home runs and 535 RBI.
