1B - NYY
Expert NoteView More Notes
Voit has always had a ton of power but last year he left the yard at a ridiculous pace, with a 34.9% HR/FB rate, third best in the league. The thing is, nothing about his profile really changed all that much. Indeed, his hard hit rate, barrel percentage, and average exit velocity actually were career lows. The biggest difference was that Voit simply swung more than ever, 52.1% of the time, and correspondingly made more contact, at a 73.8% rate, and actually struck out less than ever before. If Voit keeps the same approach, there's every reason to expect him to put up massive power numbers, assuming he can stay healthy. That's always been the issue, of course, and he did battle plantar fasciitis at the end of the year. Bake in some injury risk to your evaluation, but expect plenty of power this season from Voit.

Luke Voit avoids arbitration and agrees to a $4.7 million deal with the Yankees.
Luke Voit is coming off a career season where hit smacked 22 home runs, 41 runs, and 52 RBI with a .277 batting average in 234 plate appearances. Voit reached a career-high in home runs in fewer than half of his 510 plate appearances in 2019. He was on pace for career bests across the board.
