Voit is not in the lineup Monday against the Twins, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Voit will take a seat for Monday's series opener after starting the previous 10 games, slashing a healthy .306/.375/.667 with four homers and six RBI over that stretch. Greg Bird will draw the start at first base in this one, hitting seventh.
Voit will be called up ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Red Sox, DJ Eberle of the Times Leader News reports.
Voit was shipped from the Cardinals to the Yankees on Saturday, and after initially being assigned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, he'll head to the majors. The 27-year-old first baseman appeared in just eight games for the Cardinals in 2018, going 2-for-11 with a homer and three RBI over that span.
A 27-year-old right-handed first baseman, Voit probably fits better in the American League, as he profiles as a quality designated hitter against left-handed pitching. He was hitting .299/.391/.500 with nine home runs in 271 plate appearances for Triple-A Memphis this year, and has a career .240/.307/.432 slash line with five home runs in 137 plate appearances in the majors. Voit could be summoned to the big-league club in the coming days if the Yankees would like a right-handed slugger on the bench, or they could wait until September.
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.
