Voit is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rays.
The Yankees are likely just building in a rest day for Voit after he started both of the past two days following his return from the 10-day injured list. The early returns weren't overly promising (0-for-6 with a walk), but Voit should gradually settle in at the plate once he gets more at-bats under his belt. Mike Ford will fill in for Voit at first base Thursday.
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.

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.
Voit (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.
It was reported last week that Voit would be rehabbing with Double-A Somerset, but he'll instead head to Triple-A for the minor-league opener. He's been taking live at-bats at the alternate site, so while it's unclear exactly how long Voit's rehab assignment will be, he could rejoin the Yankees in the near future if he avoids any setbacks.
Voit (knee) is scheduled to play a rehab game with Double-A Somerset on Tuesday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
The 30-year-old progressed to taking live at-bats at the alternate training site this week, and the next step in his recovery is rehab games. Voit could require a fair amount of reps before being cleared for big-league action after missing the first month of the season while recovering from knee surgery in late March for a partially torn meniscus.

Voit has been participating in defensive drills and running outside recently, and he'll now face live pitching for the first time since undergoing knee surgery in late March. The 30-year-old appears to be trending in the right direction, but it's not yet clear when he'll return to game action.

Voit went through defensive drills Saturday, and he continues to increase his workload while he recovers from knee surgery that he underwent in late March.

Voit (knee) will report to the Yankees' alternate training site early next week, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.
Voit resumed swinging Tuesday, and he'll likely be able to face live hitting once he reports to the team's alternate training site. Voit is still likely weeks away from his return to game action, but it's encouraging to see him ramp up his activities recently. DJ LeMahieu and Mike Ford should continue to fill in at first base in his absence.

Voit continues inching toward a return from his surgery in late March to repair a partially torn meniscus in his left knee.

Voit (knee) was cleared Tuesday to begin light activities and could hit off a tee next week, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.
All of the reports regarding Voit's recovery from late-March partial meniscus tear surgery have been promising. He appears to be on track to return in early-to-mid May.
Voit is "doing really well" in his recovery from knee surgery and could begin baseball activities next week, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.
The slugger is slated for a routine post-op visit with a doctor Monday, which could give more clarity about when he can resume working out. Manager Aaron Boone stated Sunday that Voit won't begin baseball activities for "at least another week" while indicating that the first baseman's recovery is going "as expected." Voit appears to still be on track for a mid-May return to action.
Voit (knee) is expected to return sometime in May, according to manager Aaron Boone, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.
He will not do any baseball activities for the next three weeks and remains on track to return within the original 4-to-6 week window. Jay Bruce has been getting starts at first base in the meantime.
Voit (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, retroactive to March 29.
The 30-year-old underwent surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus Monday, so it was only a matter of time before he landed on the shelf. Voit doesn't have an officially timeline for his return, but he'll likely be sidelined from baseball activities for a few weeks. He shouldn't be expected to make his season debut in April.
Voit confirmed that he underwent surgery Monday to repair a partially torn meniscus in his left knee, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.
Reports surfaced over the weekend indicating that Voit would require surgery, but it wasn't immediately clear when the procedure would be completed. Now that Voit has officially had surgery, he'll likely be in recovery mode for at least three weeks before resuming baseball activities. Voit said he hasn't been given a target date to return to game action, though he said he expects to be back "pretty soon." For now, fantasy managers are probably best off ruling him out for all of April.
Voit has a partial meniscus tear and will undergo surgery, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Voit recently underwent an MRI that revealed the extent of his knee injury. Voit won't be able to participate in baseball activities for at least three weeks following his procedure, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to game action. Jay Bruce will serve as the team's starting first baseman in his absence, while Derek Dietrich and Tyler Wade could also see increased playing time to begin the season.
Voit went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies.
Voit missed a few games due to a sore right knee, but the issue was clearly minor given the slugger's ability to play -- albeit at DH -- Thursday. Voit felt well enough to test the knee on a tag-up from second base following a flyball to left, and though he was thrown out, he appeared to come out of it none the worse for wear. Per Marly Rivera of ESPN.com, Voit will have a planned day off Friday.
