Urshela is listed as day-to-day (we’re all day-to-day) and is not in the lineup for Game 1 of the Yankees’ doubleheader Friday afternoon against the New York Mets. Miguel Andujar is batting sixth in the lineup and playing third base.

In corresponding moves, the team released reliever Luis Avilan (who they hope to be able to sign back) and called up shortstop Jordy Mercer from the alternate site.
