Yankees' Luke Voit: Targeting Tuesday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (oblique) hopes to return to the major-league roster Tuesday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Voit transferred his rehab assignment from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to Double-A Somerset on Tuesday, and he could return to the majors in time for the series opener against the Royals. The first baseman said his return depends on how he feels after appearing in more rehab games. He's scheduled to play a full nine-inning game Wednesday, and he'll get some additional at-bats in the days that follow. Voit has been out since May 25 due to a Grade 2 oblique strain.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Moving rehab to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (oblique) transferred his rehab assignment from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to Double-A Somerset on Tuesday.

Voit will prepare to make his second rehab appearance at a new affiliate after he went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored while playing five innings at first base for the Triple-A club Sunday. The Yankees will likely want to see Voit play at least one or two nine-inning games in the field during his rehab assignment before most likely bringing him back from the injured list ahead of next week's series versus the Royals. Voit has been sidelined since May 25 with a Grade 2 oblique strain.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Starting rehab assignment Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment Sunday that is expected to last about a week, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

The first baseman has increased his activity of late, including taking more swings, as he works his way back from a Grade 2 oblique strain. He is set to get into a handful of minor-league contests before potentially rejoining the big club in about a week. Voit's return should provide a tangible boost to a Yankees team that has lost seven of its past 11 games.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Nearing rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (oblique) could begin a rehab assignment as early as Sunday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Voit has been sidelined with a Grade 2 oblique strain since May 26, but he recently increased his volume of swings and could return to game action in the minors in the near future. Manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that the 30-year-old could rejoin the Yankees after about a week of rehab games, per Marly Rivera of ESPN.com.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Taking more swings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (oblique) is increasing his volume of swings and could begin a rehab assignment next week, the Associated Press reports.

Voit has been on the 10-day injured list since May 26 with a Grade 2 right oblique strain, but he appears to be progressing toward a return. He would likely need a few minor-league rehab games to get back up to speed, which puts his target date to rejoin the big club at sometime in late June. Voit has played in only 12 games this year as a result of this injury and knee surgery that delayed the start of his season.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Working toward rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone mentioned June 15 as a potential date for Voit (oblique) to begin a rehab assignment, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

Voit participated in some fielding work Friday and is continuing to progress toward a mid-June rehab assignment. The slugger, who was placed on the 10-day IL on May 26, will likely need to make multiple appearances in the minors before he's ready to rejoin the Yankees lineup. With all that being considered, he remains on track for a late-June return.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Takes part in baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (oblique) did some fielding work Friday, per Meredith Marakovits of YES Network, and he was also slated to take dry swings later in the day, according to Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated.

Voit has been on the injured list since late May with a Grade 2 oblique strain, and he is expected to still be a few weeks away from a return. Manager Aaron Boone noted that the slugger still needs to progress with his hitting before eventually taking some live at-bats while also indicating that Voit is making positive steps in his recovery. "He's doing well...He's trending in a very good direction," Boone stated.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Likely out multiple weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Voit (oblique) is expected to be out for at least a few weeks, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

While Boone wasn't especially specific in providing a timeline for the slugger's return, it appears clear that Voit will miss more than the minimum 10 days as he recovers from the oblique issue. Look for Mike Ford and DJ LeMahieu to continue to get the bulk of the time at first base in Voit's absence.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a Grade 2 oblique strain, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

The news comes shortly after Voit was omitted from the lineup for Wednesday's since-postponed game against the Blue Jays. The Yankees will look to Mike Ford and DJ LeMahieu to fill in at first base while Voit recovers from the oblique strain.

Yankees' Luke Voit: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit is not starting Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

Voit has yet to get into a groove at the plate this season, hitting .182 overall and just 2-for-21 in his last six games. The 2020 league leader in home runs gets a night off while DJ LeMahieu fills in at first base.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Expected to miss weekend series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit will likely miss the Yankees' weekend series in Detroit, as his wife is expected to give birth Friday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Voit should appear in the rest of the mid-week series against the Blue Jays before missing three games against the Tigers. Mike Ford will likely see some time in the starting lineup in his absence.

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

Voit is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

Voit receives a day off after playing six of the last seven days to begin his season. The 2020 MLB home run leader has tallied two hits in each of his past three games and launched his first homer of 2021 on Monday against the Rangers.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Blasts first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.

He took Josh Sborz deep in the eighth inning, supplying the last gasp of offense for the Yankees on the night. It was Voit's first homer of the year, and after going 0-for-10 in his first three games back in the lineup after coming off the IL, the first baseman seems to have found his swing, reeling off three straight multi-hit performances.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Collects first hits of campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit went 2-for-4 with a run and two RBI in Saturday's 8-2 victory over Baltimore.

The first baseman collected his first hit of the season in the first inning, rapping a single to left field and later coming around to score. He singled again in the sixth inning, this time plating two runs with the base knock. Voit entered the contest having gone 0-for-10 through his first three games after missing nearly six weeks while recovering from left knee surgery.

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

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.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Activated as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Tracking toward Tuesday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Collects two hits in rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Voit (knee) went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk in his first game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

The slugger began a rehab assignment with the Yankees' top minor-league club and reached base three times. He's expected to get into 4-to-5 additional minor-league contests before potentially returning to the big club in the middle of next week.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Could return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
