Voit (abdomen) was activated from the injured list and is hitting third Saturday against the Blue Jays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. As expected, Voit will rejoin the lineup for the second game of the second half. He hit .333/.442/.517 with three home runs in June.
Voit (abdomen) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Blue Jays and remains on the injured list. Voit previously expressed optimism he would be ready to go for the start of the season's second half Friday, but he wasn't activated by the time the Yankees posted their lineup. According to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, the 28-year-old is currently on his way to New York and is expected to be activated Saturday.
Voit (abdomen) remains optimistic that he can rejoin the lineup to begin the team's first series after the All-Star break, Coley Harvey of ESPN.comreports. Voit was placed on the injured list Tuesday but has maintained that his absence will be brief. Based on comments from both himself and the team, it appears realistic that he could return for the Yankees' series against the Blue Jays on Friday.
Voit (abdomen) is expected to return for the Yankees' series after the All-Star break, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. An MRI revealed a slight abdominal strain for the first baseman, sending him to the 10-day injured list, but the timing of the All-Star break means he may wind up missing just six more games. Edwin Encarnacion and DJ LeMahieu are expected to cover first base in his absence, with at-bats opening up for other players at the designated hitter and third base spots.
Voit was placed on the 10-day injured list with an abdominal strain Tuesday. Voit left Saturday's game against the Red Sox with abdominal tightness and did not play in Sunday's contest. The assignment is backdated to Sunday, so he could be back in the lineup when play resumes July 12 following the All-Star break, should he prove ready. DJ LeMahieu can slide over to first base in Voit's absence, as he did on Sunday, or the Yankees can move Edwin Encarnacion out from the designated hitter spot.
