Yankees' Luke Voit: Battling plantar fascitiis
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday that Voit (foot) has been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and required a platelet-rich plasma injection to address the injury, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.Cashman said Voit would be confined to a walking boot for at least one week, but the first baseman won't require offseason surgery and should be back to full strength well in advance of spring training. Voit solidified himself as a lineup regular heading into 2021 after slugging an MLB-best 22 home runs while batting .277 with 52 RBI and 41 runs during the 60-game 2020 campaign.
Yankees' Luke Voit: Slated to undergo MRI
Voit will undergo an MRI on Sunday to determine the severity of a lingering foot issue, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.Voit dealt with a foot injury over much of the 2020 season that didn't hinder his abilities much at the plate as he led the league with 22 home runs. His MRI could help to determine treatment options as the Yankees prepare for the offseason.
Yankees' Luke Voit: Dealing with foot issue
Voit has been managing foot pain for some time, but it has not limited him at the plate, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.The Yankees and Voit have been vague about the exact nature of the condition, simply referring to it as "foot stuff." While manager Aaron Boone explained that the issue causes Voit pain, he also stated "it's not something that's limiting." Voit's performance at the plate validates that assessment, as he is slashing .327/.345/.750 with seven home runs and 20 RBI over his past 12 games.
