Yankees' Luke Voit: Dealing with abdominal tightness

Voit was removed from Saturday's game versus the Red Sox with tightness in the left side of his abdomen, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Voit suffered the injury while rounding first base when stretching a single into a double, though it initially appeared to be a hamstring issue. The 28-year-old said he hopes to avoid the injured list, and the team will decide whether an MRI is necessary depending on how he feels Sunday. Edwin Encarnacion and DJ LeMahieu would be the likely options to fill in at first base should Voit be forced to miss time. According to Erik Boland of Newsday, manager Aaron Boone indicated it's unlikely Voit will be in the lineup Sunday, though he wouldn't rule out using him off the bench, which bodes well for Voit's prognosis.
