      Yankees' Luke Voit: Sits for first time

      Luke Voit hits the bench for the first time Saturday against the White Sox.With the rash of injuries hitting the New York Yankees this season, Voit has been needed in an everyday role. He's shown good power, hitting four homers, but his batting average sits at just .184. Greg Bird starts at first base Saturday, with Clint Frazier starting in left field.

      Yankees' Luke Voit: Connects for third homer

      Luke Voit went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored Tuesday against the Astros.Voit took Gerrit Cole deep in the first inning for his third home run of the season. He is now riding a five-game hitting streak, though he has failed to record multiple hits in any game and his average still sits at just .195. Encouragingly, he has only struck out at a 22 percent clip to begin the season and has paired that with a strong .340 on-base percentage. Batting third in the New York Yankees' lineup due to injuries, Voit should rack up plenty of counting stats for the time being.

      Yankees' Luke Voit: Seals victory

      Luke Voit went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Thursday against the Orioles.Voit took Miguel Castro deep in the ninth inning to seal the win for the New York Yankees, his second homer of the season. He's had trouble getting things going since his home run Opening Day, with this being his first extra-base hit in 18 at-bats since. However, he continues to bat third in the depleted Yankees lineup, which should provide him plenty of opportunity to drive in runs if he can get it going at the plate.

      Yankees' Luke Voit: Won't miss any games

      Luke Voit (hand) won't miss a game after getting hit in the hand by a pitch Tuesday.Voit won't have to play the field, but he'll bat third as the team's designated hitter. The fact that he's able to play is no surprise as he was able to stay in the game following the incident, and X-rays came back negative.

      Yankees' Luke Voit: Clear after X-rays

      Luke Voit had X-rays on his hand come back negative after being hit by a pitch Tuesday against the Tigers, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.There was never major concern for Voit considering he was able to stay in the game with no apparent issues, but it's nonetheless a reassuring development for a New York Yankees lineup already riddled with injuries. The 27-year-old expects to play in Wednesday's series finale, but it remains to be seen whether the team opts to give him a day off anyway.

      Yankees' Luke Voit: Hot start to 2019

      Luke Voit went 1-for-1 with a home run, four RBI and two walks in Thursday's season opener against Baltimore.Voit got off to a strong start by launching a three-run blast in the first inning. He plated his fourth run of the day the easy way, by being struck by a pitch with the bases loaded in the fifth. Voit batted cleanup for the New York Yankees on Opening Day, and although skipper Aaron Boone has yet to confirm that Voit will remain in this slot going forward, his early success certainly won't hurt his chances of sticking in the No. 4 spot.

      Yankees' Luke Voit: Batting cleanup

      Luke Voit will serve as the New York Yankees' designated hitter and bat out of the cleanup spot Thursday against the Orioles.Manager Aaron Boone announced a day earlier that Voit would handle DH duties in the opener while Greg Bird would man first base, but the two players could move between the two spots liberally in the early weeks of the season while Aaron Hicks (back) is on the injured list. The more notable development is that Voit is being deployed as the No. 4 hitter, a favorable arrangement in any lineup but especially so with superstars Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton hitting directly in front of him. If Boone sticks with this lineup configuration on a permanent basis, Voit could be in store for a huge RBI total in 2019.

      Yankees' Luke Voit: Opening season at DH

      Luke Voit will serve as the New York Yankees' designated hitter in Thursday's season opener against the Orioles, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.With Aaron Hicks (back) beginning the season on the injured list, Voit and Greg Bird were already assured starting roles at either first base or DH. The Yankees have likely chosen to deploy Bird at first base initially for defensive reasons, but how both Voit and Bird perform at the plate will ultimately carry more weight regarding which of the two emerges as the primary option at the position once the team is at full strength. Manager Aaron Boone hasn't revealed the batting order for the opener, but if the Yankees' Grapefruit League lineups are any indication, Voit could slot in as the team's cleanup hitter.

      Yankees' Luke Voit: Cranks fourth homer

      Luke Voit went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two strikeouts Monday against the Braves.Voit took Bryse Wilson deep for his fourth homer of the spring in the second inning. Voit continues to hit well, going 10-for-34 and slugging .676 in Grapefruit League action. Though he has been locked in a battle with Greg Bird to be the New York Yankees' starting first baseman, Aaron Hicks' (shoulder) injury will likely give both Bird and Voit the chance to break camp on the big-league roster.

      Yankees' Luke Voit: Could be cleanup hitter

      While manager Aaron Boone has not declared a winner of the first-base job battle, he says he likes the look of Luke Voit in the cleanup spot for the New York Yankees, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.He also noted that Voit could be the No. 3 hitter at times. It would be pretty counterintuitive to demote a player at the end of spring training that the manager likes at the third and fourth spots in a loaded lineup, so while there hasn't been any official word on whether Voit or Greg Bird will break camp as the starting first baseman, everything continues to point toward Voit winning this job battle.
