Alberto is not in the lineup for Friday's game at Boston, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Alberto will serve as the Orioles' leadoff man and draw a start at third base in Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Rio Ruiz seems to have re-emerged as the Orioles' preferred starter at third base against right-handed pitching, but Alberto still typically sticks in the lineup for those matchups by shifting over to the keystone while Richie Martin moves to the bench. Alberto doesn't offer much power or speed but has been a pillar in the batting-average department this season, maintaining a .320 mark across 392 plate appearances.
Alberto (shin) is starting at third base and leading off Saturday against the Blue Jays.
He left Thursday's game with a shin injury, but it was minor. Alberto is hitting .438 with one home run in 32 at-bats over his last 10 games.
Alberto (lower leg) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Alberto was removed during the eighth inning of Friday's contest after fouling a ball off his shin and will take at least one game out of the lineup to recover.

Alberto fouled a ball off his shin in the bottom of the seventh inning but was able to run the bases after hitting a single during the same at-bat. He experienced swelling and received X-rays that came back negative. The 26-year-old should be considered day-to-day at this time.
Alberto is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Alberto will be squeezed out of the lineup due to the lack of a designated-hitter spot being available in San Diego. The Orioles' normal DH, Renato Nunez, will instead step in at third base, leaving no room in the infield for Alberto. Expect Alberto rejoin the starting nine when Baltimore resumes American League play Thursday versus Toronto.
Alberto went 2-for-5 with a two-run single and a run scored in Saturday's 8-7 win over the Angels.
Alberto scored on a two-run single by Pedro Severino in the first inning, and then provided the final blow with his own two-run hit in the eighth inning to put the Orioles ahead for good.

Hitting in the leadoff spot, Alberto delivered four singles to notch his fourth four-hit game of the season. His biggest hit came in the 15th inning, when he plated a run with an infield single that appeared to put the game out of reach.

Alberto hit a solo shot off Robbie Ray, his sixth homer of the season, to cut the deficit to four in the top of the fifth inning. The infielder hasn't shown a ton of power this season, but his .307/.325/.409 slash line this season is still far more offense than he'd shown previously in his career.
Alberto is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Alberto will cede his spot in the infield to rookie Richie Martin, marking the second time in three days he has bowed out of the lineup. Considering Alberto is still hitting above .300 for the season, his playing time appears fairly secure at the moment.
Alberto is not starting Wednesday against Washington, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Alberto hasn't done much other than hit for average this season, but his .306 figure in that category has at least helped fantasy owners. Jonathan Villar slides over to second base in his absence, with Richie Martin starting at shortstop.
Alberto is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Toronto, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Alberto started the last 18 games and slashed .342/.368/.438 with five doubles in that stretch, but he'll head to the bench for Friday's series opener. Rio Ruiz starts at the hot corner in his absence and bats eighth.
Alberto went 4-for-5 with a double and a run Tuesday in the Orioles' 8-3 loss to the Padres.
Alberto has turned in nine multi-hit performances in 20 games in June, propelling him to a .366 average for the month. Though he's excelled at making contact and is locked in as the Orioles' leadoff man, Alberto's lofty average has come with few supporting statistics. He has yet to leave the yard in June and has compiled only seven RBI, six runs and one steal, rendering him mostly a one-category play. Alberto will start at third base and lead off again Wednesday in the series finale, per Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports.
Alberto went 3-for-6 with two RBI in Sunday's game against Boston.
Alberto drove in the game's first run in the third inning on an infield single, and he plated another run in the bottom of the eighth with a single to center.

Alberto (illness) is starting at third base and leading off Saturday against the Red Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
He was pulled from Friday's game with an illness, but it was apparently a minor issue. Alberto is hitting .341 this month, and as long as he stays relatively productive, there should be ample playing time available.

Alberto will take a seat on the bench for Thursday's series finale after starting the past eight games and slashing .389/.405/.417 with a double and a stolen base during that stretch. Jonathan Villar is starting at second base in this one, with Richie Martin entering the lineup at shortstop.
Alberto went 3-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Astros.
Alberto sits with just 14 RBI on the season through 51 games, but he has registered two or more hits in five of his last six contests and is batting .311 on the season. He's found success atop Baltimore's batting order of late and figures to stick there heading into Tuesday's matchup with Toronto.
