Manager Brian Snitker’s plan had been to DH Travis d’Arnaud today, but he had more important business to attend to, as he was placed on the paternity list today, with William Contreras being called up to take his place. Obviously this is warranting of a big congratulations to Travis on the day after he re-signed with Atlanta. With that being said, his spot had to be replaced in the lineup, and we see that today with Jorge Soler at DH and with Stephen Vogt catching and batting ninth.

Baltimore will stick with the same group as Friday with the exception of right field where Anthony Santander will start and hit sixth while playing right field. Pedro Severino will get the start behind the plate for the second straight day and will catch Matt Harvey.

Saturday’s game is scheduled to get underway at 7:05 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports Southeast.
