Voit (knee) was activated off the injured list as expected Tuesday. Voit has been out all season after undergoing surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus in his left knee in late March. He's looked quite healthy in five rehab games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, going 7-for-18 with three homers. Voit should reclaim his everyday role at first base and will be looking to build on an excellent 2020 season which saw him lead the league with 22 homers.
Manager Aaron Boone said he's hopeful that Voit (knee) will be activated from the 10-day injured list during the Yankees' upcoming three-game series with the Rays that begins Tuesday, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports. Voit, who has gone 5-for-13 with a pair of home runs and walks in his first four rehab contests at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, is slated to serve as the affiliate's designated hitter Sunday in what is expected to be his final minor-league game. Assuming Voit comes out of the game with no renewed discomfort in his surgically repaired left knee, he'll likely make his 2021 debut for the Yankees at first base in Tuesday's series opener in Tampa Bay. Voit's return will likely result in fewer opportunities for Mike Ford and Rougned Odor (knee), who had been his primary replacements in the lineup this season.
Manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Voit (knee) is expected to be reinstated from the injured list early next week, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. Voit began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday and has gone 4-for-9 with a home run, a double, two RBI, two runs and two walks in three games. The 30-year-old could play a few more games at the Triple-A level but will likely be able to make his season debut during the Yankees' upcoming series in Tampa Bay.
Voit (knee) went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk in his first game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday. The slugger began a rehab assignment with the Yankees' top minor-league club and reached base three times. He's expected to get into 4-to-5 additional minor-league contests before potentially returning to the big club in the middle of next week.
Voit (knee) could return in the middle of next week, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. He is embarking on a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Per manager Aaron Boone, Voit is expected to play in 5-to-6 games over the next 7-to-8 days, which would take us to Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. If all goes well, he could return to the Yankees lineup toward the end of next week's series in Tampa Bay that runs from May 11 through May 13.
