Voit is hitting .476 (20-for-42) with four home runs and 13 RBI over his last 10 games with Triple-A Memphis.
That torrid stretch includes a jaw-dropping 12-for-15 tally over the last four games, one in which the burly infielder has racked up nine of those RBI. The surge has brought Voit's minor-league slash line to .299/.384/.480 for the season, a level of success he hasn't sniffed in his 2018 big-league opportunities thus far. While Voit generated a respectable .455 slugging percentage with the Cardinals during his 13 plate appearances this season, he's hit just .182 during that brief tenure. With Jose Martinez reportedly set to spend more time in right field due to defensive issues at first base, there may potentially be an opportunity for another callup for Voit at some point this summer, particularly if he continues to generate his current level of offense.
Voit was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday.
Voit went 0-for-7 with a walk and four strikeouts during his three-day stay with the Cardinals, which coincided with Jose Martinez's stint on the paternity list. The 27-year-old will report back to Memphis, where he is hitting just .237/.348/.339 through 34 games with the Redbirds this season.
Voit will be recalled from Triple-A Memphis prior to Friday's series opener against the Cubs, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Jose Martinez will be away from the team attending the birth of his child, so Voit will join the Cardinals to offer additional depth at first base in his absence. The 27-year-old is 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk and three RBI in five appearances for the big club this year. Seeing as Martinez is expected to rejoin the Cardinals early next week, Voit's time in the majors will likely be short lived.
Voit slugged a solo home run in a pinch-hit at-bat during Thursday's win over the Marlins.
With the Cardinals holding a slim 3-1 lead in the bottom of the seventh, manager Mike Matheny pulled original pinch-hit option Greg Garcia after Adam Conley entered as a reliever, instead sending Voit to the plate. The 27-year-old responded by launching a 1-2 pitch 398 feet into the left-field seats, closing out the scoring on the afternoon. Voit has yet to draw a start at the major-league level this season, and Thursday's round tripper was his first extra-base hit of 2018.
Voit laced a two-run single in a pinch-hit at-bat during Thursday's win over the Pirates.
The burly infielder made his first official big-league at-bat of 2018 count, driving in Harrison Bader and Tommy Pham in the ninth to chop two runs off a three-run deficit. Voit had just been called up earlier in the day from Triple-A Memphis, where he'd slashed .237/.348/.339 across 138 plate appearances.
