Voit has crushed 31 home runs with a .400 wOBA in 114 games since joining the Yankees. While he was never going to match last year's .322 batting average with a contact rate below 70%, he could hit closer to his current .268 clip with at least 30 home runs. With Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Edwin Encarnacion suddenly giving the Yankees a Monstars lineup, 100 runs and RBIs each are in the picture if Voit keeps batting second or third. A .381 xwOBA is nearly identical to his actual .380 xwOBA, so this superb version of the first baseman looks fully sustainable.

Voit is hitting for plenty of power and driving in plenty of runs, and his batting average should improve significantly as the season progresses. It seems quite clear at this point that last season was not a total fluke.

Voit was extraordinary for the Yankees once they acquired him from St. Louis last year. In fact, he may have been one of the best hitters in baseball. Don't expect that for all of 2019, but don't be shocked if he puts up a Jesus Aguilar type of season either.
