Baltimore Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts is expected to miss two to four weeks with a ruptured tendon in the back of his right knee, reports Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.

Roberts left during Thursday's 6-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays after feeling a pop in his right hamstring near the back of his knee while trying to steal second base.

The team announced Friday they have placed Roberts on the 15-day disabled list.

Roberts was 5-for-12 this season before the injury. Ryan Flaherty and Alexi Casilla will fill in at second base while he recovers.
