Yankees' Luke Voit: Staying in shape at home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit has been working out at his home in St. Louis, Ryan Fagan of Sporting News reports.

In addition to working out "as much as possible" in order to stay in shape, Voit has been getting extra conditioning by doing yard work in his backyard. The slugger is expected to take on a near-everyday role at first base for the Yankees when the regular season begins.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Slated for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit is projected to be the Yankees' starter at first base when the regular season begins, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Voit entered spring training as the favorite for the first base job and played well enough to nail down the role, hitting .267 with a home run and two RBI over 30 at-bats in Grapefruit League play. The 29-year-old will look to bounce back from a rough end to the 2019 campaign that included sports hernia surgery in August and a subsequent 1-for-32 slump to close out the regular season.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Feeling healthy to begin spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit indicated earlier this month that he's made a full recovery from offseason bilateral core surgery, George A. King III of the New York Post reports. "I have never felt any better in my life. It's everything. I feel faster, more agile and my strength is back," Voit said.

Voit was plagued by core-muscle issues for much of 2019, missing around three weeks with an abdominal strain and requiring another month-long stay on the injured list with a sports hernia. The 29-year-old said that he believes the October procedure will provide a more permanent fix, and he's optimistic that the physical changes he made over the offseason will put him in better position to withstand the rigors of a 162-game season. Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reiterated that Voit looked to be in excellent shape during Monday's camp workout, so the first baseman looks like he'll be a full go during spring training.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Should open 2020 as first baseman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday that he anticipates Voit (abdomen) opening the upcoming season as the Yankees' everyday first baseman, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. "I'm confident that Luke Voit is an impact player for us," Boone said.

A core-muscle injury limited Voit's effectiveness over the final month of the regular season and ultimately made surgery necessary once the Yankees were eliminated from the playoffs, but the 28-year-old should be back to full strength for spring training. Despite the disappointing finish to his 2019 campaign, Voit was still a well above-average performer at the dish, contributing a .263/.378/.464 slash line (126 wRC+) over his 510 plate appearances.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Undergoes offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (abdomen) recently underwent surgery to address core muscle injuries, but is expected to be ready for spring training, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Voit was in a slump at the end of the regular season, going 1-for-32 with 13 strikeouts, which led to a decreased role in the postseason. General manager Brian Cashman revealed Thursday that the 28-year-old had surgery, so it's safe to wonder whether injuries played a role in Voit's struggles. The first baseman hit .263/.378/.464 but had 142 strikeouts in 2019.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Left off roster for ALCS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit is not on the Yankees' ALCS roster.

The Astros chose to carry a pitching staff comprised entirely of right-handers for the ALCS, so the Yankees did not see a role for Voit, whose main strength would have been his availability to pinch-hit against left-handed pitchers. Despite his presence on the ALDS roster, Voit did not appear in any of the team's three games against the Twins. DJ LeMahieu should mainly handle the duties at first base with Edwin Encarnacion serving as the designated hitter.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Makes ALDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit is on the Yankees' ALDS roster.

Voit stumbled down the stretch, going 1-for-32 with 13 strikeouts over his final 10 games. The Yankees will ultimately keep faith in Voit and his longer track record over Mike Ford, who posted an OPS of 1.142 in the month of September. Voit is likely stuck in a bench role with DJ LeMahieu starting at first base and Edwin Encarnacion serving as the designated hitter.

Yankees' Luke Voit: ALDS roster spot in jeopardy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit's recent slump may cost him a spot on the ALDS roster, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Voit struck out 13 times and collected only one hit over his last 32 at-bats, putting him at risk of being left off the roster at the start of the postseason. Per Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger, Voit believes his recent struggles are mental and not related to the sports hernia he was diagnosed with in late July. To make the matter more complicated, Mike Ford put together a strong September, hitting .353 with three homers and 10 RBI in 34 at-bats. With DJ LeMahieu slated to play first base in the playoffs and Edwin Encarnacion likely returning to the fold as DH, the Yankees have no room to carry both Voit and Ford on the roster.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Voit is 1-for-32 over his last 10 games and will take a seat Sunday as the Yankees gear up for the ALDS. DJ LeMahieu receives the start at first base while Gio Urshela starts at the hot corner.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit is not starting Tuesday against the Rays, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Voit is slashing .232/.338/.391 with two home runs and a 28.7 percent strikeout rate in 20 games since returning from the injured list. DJ LeMahieu is starting at first base in Tuesday's series opener, with Gio Urshela getting the nod at third base.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

Voit wore the Golden Sombrero on Friday and is now hitless in his last five games (0-for-18). Mike Ford will get a turn at first base Saturday against right-hander T.J. Zeuch as Aaron Judge serves as the designated hitter.

Yankees' Luke Voit: On base four times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, two walks and two RBI while scoring three times in a victory over Toronto on Saturday.

Voit plated a run with a ground-rule double in the third inning and smashed a 439-foot solo shot to center field in the sixth. The 28-year-old has gone 7-for-15 with a pair of homers, four walks and six RBI over his last four games. He is slashing .282/.394/.499 with 21 long balls and 61 runs batted in overall this season.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Smashes 20th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

Voit delivered a two-run blast over the fence in center during the first inning, and he drove in another run in the eighth with a single to right field. This marks the 28-year-old's first long ball since July 22 against Minnesota, though it's worth noting that he missed 29 games in July and August due to a sports hernia. Voit is hitting .279 with 20 homers and 58 RBI over 105 games this season.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Catches breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Voit will head to the bench after collecting a pair of base knocks, including a double, in Monday's matchup with Boston. Mike Ford starts at first base and will hit seventh.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Sitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

Voit started five games in a row since returning from the injured list, going 4-for-17 at the plate with eight strikeouts. Edwin Encarnacion will be the first baseman Wednesday, with Mike Ford serving as the designated hitter.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Singles twice in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and a run scored in Friday's loss to Oakland.

Voit played first base and hit sixth in his return to the lineup after missing 29 games with a sports hernia. The 28-year-old is slashing .280/.393/.493 with 19 homers and 54 RBI in 416 plate appearances this season.

Yankees' Luke Voit: May need offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit, who returned from a month-long absence due to a sports hernia Friday, may still require offseason surgery, Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports reports.

While Voit is back in the lineup for the stretch run, it's possible that he could still feel the lingering effects of the injury. However, the fact that he's been cleared to return suggests that the Yankees believe he'll be able to perform up to expectations the rest of the way.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (abdomen) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday.

Voit played four rehab games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre over the last week, clearing the way for his return to the Yankees. He was ultimately sidelined for a month due to a sports hernia. The 28-year-old has a .278/.392/.493 slash line with 19 homers in 94 games and figures to resume his starting role at first base.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Expected back Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (abdomen) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

This has been the target for a while; the Yankees are just returning to the Bronx after a long west coast road trip and Voit has been rehabbing close to home at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Voit will end up having missed a month with the sports hernia. Mike Ford has been crushing the ball in his absence, but Voit figures to immediately reclaim the starting job at first base. There may be room for both players in the lineup, at least until Edwin Encarnacion (wrist) returns to action.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Leading off in first rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (abdomen) is playing first base and leading off for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Randy Miller of NJ.com reports.

Voit is making his first appearance since going on the 10-day injured list with a sports hernia July 31. Barring any setbacks, he is likely to rejoin the big club when it begins the next homestand against Oakland on Aug. 30. The 28-year-old is hitting .278 with 19 homers and 54 RBI in 349 at-bats with the Yankees this season.
