The New York Yankees announced on Tuesday that first baseman Luke Voit has started a rehabilitation task with the team’s AAA branch in Scranton Wilkes-Barre. Voit got lost just before the start of the 2021 season, when it was discovered that he broke the meniscus of his left knee, which required surgery shortly after the campaign began. It was a considerable blow to the Yankees after Voit started a career season in the 2020 shortened season for COVID. He led the main competitions with 22 home runs in just 56 games. His previous career record was 21 players back and forth in 118 games with the Yankees in 2019. In his absence, the Yankees initially tried to put veteran striker Jay Bruce first, but big fights on the plate led to his retirement last month. . This forced manager Aaron Boone to go with DJ LeMahieu and Mike Ford in the position. His reintroduction into the Yankees’ team would give a considerable boost, considering that New York is in eighth place in the championships on average of runs per game, despite being tied for eighth in the league in home runs.
