Yankees 1B Luke Voit (knee) is expected to return from the injured list sometime in mid-May, per GM Brian Cashman.
Voit was cleared to begin light baseball activities last week and is expected to come off the injured list sometime in mid-May. He is taking groundballs and will swing a bat on Tuesday. With Jay Bruce retiring, DJ LeMahieu will handle first base duties while Voit is sidelined. Voit belted 22 homers in a shortened 2020 campaign and is currently 24th among all first basemen in the latest expert consensus rankings.
Yankees' first baseman Luke Voit (knee) was cleared to begin light baseball activities.
Voit was cleared for light baseball activities and is hoping to hit off a tee next week. He's progressing well in his recovery from knee surgery and is on target to return in mid-May. Voit belted 22 homers in a shortened 2020 campaign and is currently 24th among all first basemen in the latest expert consensus rankings.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone addressed Luke Voit's injury on Saturday, saying that the first baseman's knee injury would likely require a return window of four to six weeks.
Voit won't return to the lineup until late May, and Boone says that he will be held out of all baseball activities in general for the next three weeks. This was the expected timeline, but it's still a crushing blow for the Yankees. Voit dominated in 2020, hitting .277 while clobbering 22 home runs. That comes out to 69 homers on a 162-game pace.
The Yankees placed 1B Luke Voit (knee) on the 10-day injured list.
Voit is expected to be sidelined for at least three weeks following his meniscus injury. He'll then need to resume baseball activities so fantasy managers shouldn't expect to see him until May.
Luke Voit confirmed that he underwent surgery Monday to repair a partially torn meniscus in his left knee.
Voit underwent surgery on his left knee Monday but has no timetable for a return. “I had the surgery Monday night, no timetable yet, but I expect to be back pretty soon,” said Voit. Fantasy managers should be prepared to be without him for all of April. Jay Bruce will serve as the Yankees every day 1B while Voit is sidelined.
