New York Yankees first baseman Luke Voit will miss at least the next three weeks after undergoing surgery for a partially torn meniscus, manager Aaron Boone announced Saturday, via The Athletic's Lindsey Adler.
Voit will have the meniscus tear "cleaned up," Boone said. He'll be down with no baseball activity for at least three weeks.— Lindsey Adler (@lindseyadler) March 27, 2021
According to Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News, Voit first felt soreness in his knee early in spring training but continued to play through it before undergoing an MRI on Friday.
With the 30-year-old sidelined, Jay Bruce and Mike Tauchman will make the Yankees' Opening Day roster.
Voit led the league with 22 home runs during the 2020 season and slashed .277/.338/.610 in 56 games.
