Alex Verdugo won’t be in the New York Yankees lineup Monday night when they open a big four-game series with the Baltimore Orioles.

The team announced Monday that the outfielder was placed on the paternity list and Carlos Narváez was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Narváez is batting .211 with a .718 OPS, two home runs, and 12 RBI with Scranton this season.
