Voit went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts in Sunday's 10-2 loss at Boston. Voit finished the regular season by homering in three straight games, and also has at least one RBI in his last five games. The 27-year-old broke out with the Yankees this season and ended the regular season slashing .322/.398/.671 with 15 home runs in only 143 at-bats.
Voit is not in Saturday's starting lineup against Boston, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. Voit will receive a standard day off following 10 straight starts. During that span, he's slashed .410/.465/.949 with six home runs and 14 RBI. Greg Bird will draw a start at first base in his place.
Voit went 3-for-3 with a single, a double, a home run, one walk, two RBI and two runs in Thursday's win over the Rays. Voit reached base in all four of his plate appearances, highlighted by an RBI double in the fourth inning and a solo homer in the sixth. He's now put together two consecutive three-hit games, and he carries a .319 batting average with 13 home runs and 33 RBI over 152 plate appearances in 2018.
Voit went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over the Orioles on Saturday. His fourth bomb in four games -- including a two-homer showing Wednesday against the Red Sox -- came on a David Hess fastball and hit the back wall of the bullpen in right-center field. The 27-year-old has been a revelation while seizing the Yankees' first-base job, blasting 11 of his 12 homers this season and churning out a .317/.389/.634 slash line in just 117 plate appearances wearing pinstripes. He'll likely have another opportunity to gash Baltimore pitching Sunday, though the Yankees may choose to rest their newfound masher now that they've clinched a playoff berth.
Voit went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Red Sox. Voit took Eduardo Rodriguez deep in the second inning to record his 11th home run of the season and third in the past two games. He has exhibited an abundance of power since being dealt to the Yankees in late July, blasting 10 home runs in two months of action. As a result, he has become an everyday player and has been a reliable option in the later portions of the season.
