O's righty Pineiro slated for surgery on Tuesday
CLEVELAND -- Orioles pitcher Joel Pineiro will have surgery Tuesday.

Pineiro will have a SLAP tear repaired. SLAP stands for "superior labral tear from anterior to posterior." Orioles manager Buck Showalter was not sure what kind of timetable Pineiro was on for a return from the injury, but the state of the right-hander's rotator cuff will have a big say in that.

Meanwhile, All-Star second baseman Brian Roberts, who is recovering from a right hip labral tear, continues to improve. Roberts took batting practice, fielded ground balls, and ran Monday. Roberts is on the 15-day disabled list, dating back to July 2.

Pitcher Stu Pomeranz is eligible to come off the 60-day disabled list July 25, but it remains unclear whether he will need more time to recover from his torn left oblique. Showalter said Pomeranz would see his doctor Tuesday.
