Top Luke Voit News

  • Luke Voit: Officially non-tendered

    The Nationals declined to tender Voit a contract for 2023, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Rumors were swirling that Voit was likely to be non-tendered, and indeed the Nats decided to cut ties rather than pay Voit north of $5.5 million in arbitration. Voit hit just .228/.295/.381 with nine homers in 53 games with Washington after coming over from San Diego. He famously led the majors in homers with 22 during the shortened 2020 campaign.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Launches two-run homer

    Voit went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and three runs scored in a 13-4 win over Philadelphia in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Voit crushed a two-run, 440-foot blast off Kyle Gibson to complete a five-run inning for the Nats in the second. The first baseman later added a single in the seventh and came across to score three times in the game for only the second time this season. Voit has five RBI in his last five games and produced 10 RBI in the month of September, to go along with three homers.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Ends rough spell at plate

    Voit went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in Tuesday's 8-2 loss to Atlanta.

    Even though the Nationals ended up squandering an early 2-0 lead, Voit at least ended a prolonged slump at the plate in emphatic fashion. Over his prior seven contests, Voit went just 2-for-29 with a whopping 16 strikeouts. Voit has produced an underwhelming .243/.316/.405 slash line since joining the Nationals at the trade deadline, but he'll still be locked into a full-time role over the final week of the season. He's serving as Washington's designated hitter and cleanup batter Wednesday.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Launches solo shot

    Voit went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Marlins.

    Voit hit a third-inning solo homer to put the Nationals up 3-1. It was his 21st homer of the season, his third this month and his eighth since being acquired by the Nats. The first baseman extended his hit streak to six games with the solo shot. During that span, Voit has two homers, four RBI and three runs scored while raising his season batting average from .229 to .235.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Solo shot in loss

    Voit went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Orioles.

    Voit crushed a solo shot 426 feet in the bottom of the fourth to put the Nationals up 2-1, but it wouldn't be enough as the bullpen blew the game for Washington. The homer was Voit's 20th on the season. It comes amidst a hot stretch during which he had a .923 OPS in his previous eight games entering Wednesday.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Reaches base four times

    Voit went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored in Thursday's 11-6 victory over the Cardinals.

    Voit saw the ball well Thursday as he recorded two hits, including a double, and two walks on the day. This is Voit's second consecutive multi-hit game as he begins to heat up at the dish. In eight games since the beginning of September, Voit is 10-for-30 with a home run, three RBI and three runs.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Paces offense in loss

    Voit went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Cardinals.

    Voit contributed a homer as part of the Nationals' four-run rally in the eighth inning, and he was the only player on the team to log a multi-hit effort. He's opened September hitting .296 (8-for-27), though his homer Wednesday is his only extra-base hit in that span. For the season, the first baseman is slashing .228/.317/.414 with 19 long balls, 60 RBI, 47 runs scored and a stolen base through 110 contests between the Nationals and the Padres.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: On base four times against Mets

    Voit went 3-for-4 with a walk in Friday's 7-3 loss to the Mets.

    The first baseman got no help from the hitters bracketing him in the Washington batting order, but it was still another good showing for Voit. He's gone 10-for-32 (.313) over his last eight games with two home runs and four RBI, and the 31-year-old has some incentive to stay hot down the stretch. Voit sits four homers short of his personal best of 22, set in 2020, and five RBI shy of the career-high 62 he produced in 2019.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Belts 17th homer

    Voit went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Reds.

    He took Mike Minor deep in the sixth inning, but the Nationals were already in a 7-1 hole at that point. Voit has been basically the same hitter in Washington he was in San Diego, and through 17 games with his new club he's slashing .226/.314/.419 with four of his 17 homers on the year -- giving him an identical .733 OPS with both teams.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Quiet in return

    Voit (back) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Mariners.

    Voit missed three games with the back injury and wasn't able to make an impact in his return. He may be eased in again with Joey Meneses hitting well in his stead. Voit is slashing .222/.315/.409 through 97 games between the Nationals and the Padres this year.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Back in action Tuesday

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Remains out Saturday

    Voit was scratched from Saturday's lineup as he continues to deal with back spasms, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Scratched with back tightness

    Voit was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Padres due to back tightness, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Voit is still available off the bench Friday, so the back tightness doesn't appear to be a serious issue. He should be considered day-to-day. Joey Meneses will move to first base while Victor Robles enters the lineup in the outfield.

  • Nationals' Luke Voit: Slugs homer Tuesday

    Voit went 1-for-4 with one homer, one RBI and one run scored in Tuesday's 7-5 extra-innings loss to the Cubs.

    Voit crushed a fastball to left field in the eighth inning to pull the game to 4-3 before Lane Thomas hit a home run later in the inning, which helped the Nationals send the game into extras. The homer is Voit's 16th on the season and first since Aug. 8. While the Nationals' lineup is weaker than San Diego's, the first baseman has been given every day playing time and is hitting in the middle of the lineup, providing him ample run-producing opportunities.
