Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Baltimore Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts was put on the paternity list Friday.

Roberts left the team to be with his wife Diana. The couple is expecting its first child.

Ryan Flaherty got the start at second base Friday night against the Seattle Mariners.

The Orioles also reinstated right-handed pitcher Steve Johnson from the 15-day disabled list. Johnson hasn't pitched since June 5 due to a strained left oblique muscle.
