Luke Voit hit in face by pitch, but it appears the Yankees slugger has avoided serious injury
The Yankees' slugger initially stayed in the game but later left
Fortunately it appears to have hit his shoulder a bit before his face and was much more of a glancing blow than the pitch that broke Giancarlo Stanton's face a few years back, but that's still a scary moment for a hitter.
The Yankees further announced Voit's status at this point is day to day. It should be noted he initially stayed in the game but then was removed between innings. It's entirely possible he doesn't miss any time from this beyond the innings missed Saturday.
Voit has been invaluable to the Yankees' pursuit of the AL's top record this season. They've had major injuries to several key offensive players. In their stead, Voit has locked down first base and is hitting .275/.390/.494 with 18 homers and 52 RBI in 86 games.
