The Yankees offense is at its best with a healthy Luke Voit

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The first baseman’s second half was marred by injury in 2019, but his presence will strengthen a formidable lineup Patience and power is not easy to teach. Finding a cost-controlled player that can consistently get on base via walks and hit home runs is not particularly easy. Thankfully, the Yankees found Luke Voit in 2018 and ever since then, he has been productive, offering those two traits in bunches. He was on the way to a career-best season until July 30. That day, he injured his core muscle, and even though he came back later to keep playing, he...

How new defensive stats change the way we see the Yankees

How new defensive stats change the way we see the Yankees

Photo by Mark LoMoglio/Icon Sportswire via Outs Above Average offers new ways to evaluate the Yankees Let’s talk about the infield again! If there was one weakness on a 103-win Yankees team, it was infield defense. By all the metrics we have, Gio Urshela was merely fine; Gleyber Torres wasn’t, especially at second base; Didi Gregorius took a step back; and Luke Voit was a DH. Only DJ LeMahieu had a really standout year defensively, and that’s one of the reasons the Yankees signed him anyway. As we look toward 2020, it’s fair to question the infield defense again. Torres seems...

Yankees hope healthy Luke Voit grabs hold of first base job, but have plenty of options if not

Luke Voit knows the value of a vote of confidence given in the winter. The first baseman had spent years trying to break into the big leagues in the Cardinals system and got his first real break when he won the Yankees’ first base job over an injury-plagued Greg Bird after being acquired in a trade...

Who will lead the Yankees in home runs next season?

Who will lead the Yankees in home runs next season?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports There is no shortage of candidates, but two of them stand out among the rest The Yankees hit 306 home runs in 2019. They would have the record for more dingers in a season if it weren’t for the Minnesota Twins, who hit 307 this year. It is pretty clear that the Bombers are, well, that. A total of 14 players surpassed the ten-homer mark this year: Cameron Maybin, Clint Frazier, Mike Ford, Aaron Hicks, Edwin Encarnacion, Mike Tauchman, Didi Gregorius, Luke Voit, Giovanny Urshela, DJ LeMahieu, Aaron Judge, Brett Gardner, Gary Sanchez and Gleyber Torres. That...

NYY news: Miguel Andujar should be healthy for spring training

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Andujar should be healthy for spring training; Who is on the hot seat on the Yankees’ roster?; Betts may be staying in the AL East NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Brian Cashman has developed a roster that is already considered the favorite to win the World Series in 2020. Yet, it’s not only the Yankees in general that are on the hot seat to deliver success, but several specific Yankee players. The players that are under the most pressure to perform according to Kuty are Gerrit Cole, J.A. Happ, Gio Urshela, Clint Frazier, and Luke Voit. Honorable mentions are...

Luke Voit’s injury overshadowed his continued development

Photo by Elsa/ For all the concern around first base, the Yankees should have a long-term solution there already I think Luke Voit might end up being the perfect poster child for Brian Cashman’s run as Yankee GM. The perpetual Quad-A hitter had terrific Statcast numbers, but was stuck low in the St Louis Cardinals pecking order. When he was acquired by the Yankees, we all just kind of shrugged, but the rest, as they say, is history. Voit didn’t escape the injury plague that hit the team in 2019. An abdominal injury right around the London series sidelined him, continued to be...
