New York Yankees first baseman Luke Voit (hernia) ran the bases and took ground balls on Friday, and he's been pain-free for several days. Voit has been out since July 30 with a sports hernia, but he's hoping to return later this month. The team has cleared him to continue on-field workouts with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, beginning on Monday. The 28-year-old has been huge for the Bombers this year, hitting .278/.392/.493 with 19 home runs, 16 doubles, a triple and 54 RBI in 94 games, so he should remain stashed in all fantasy leagues.
New York Yankees first baseman Luke Voit (abdomen) hit in the cage and fielded ground balls on Wednesday, after landing on the 10-day injured list with sports hernia. Voit felt good afterwards, and manager Aaron Boone said the 28-year-old could join High-A Tampa or Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre next week for full workouts before following up with a minor-league rehab assignment. Voit is expected to miss the majority of August but he could be activated before the end of the month if all goes well with his rehab assignment.
New York Yankees first baseman Luke Voit (core) has been placed on the 10-day injured list with sports hernia. It's unclear whether the 28-year-old will require surgery, but it's that's the case he is expected to miss a minimum of six weeks. The team has recalled pitcher Jonathan Holder and infielder Breyvic Valera. Voit was producing a breakout season with totals of 19 home runs, 54 RBI, 60 runs, and a .278 batting average through 94 games in 2019. Edwin Encarnacion is set to see more action at first base while Voit recovers.
