Injured Luke Voit says Yankees have worst first-base situation in baseball -- and takes the blame for it

Recently, the Yankees have been extremely forthcoming about the team being flat-out bad. Seemingly, every Aaron Boone press conference and soundbite includes some mention of frustration or the need to unlock the team. Players are self aware about the fact that they need to start winning games yesterday, today, and tomorrow, rather than framing it as something that will happen in the faraway future. General manager Brian Cashman, who expected to be lording over an American League powerhouse, said “we’ve been everything but”.

Yankees' Luke Voit: Moving rehab to Double-A

Voit (oblique) transferred his rehab assignment from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to Double-A Somerset on Tuesday. Voit will prepare to make his second rehab appearance at a new affiliate after he went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored while playing five innings at first base for the Triple-A club Sunday. The Yankees will likely want to see Voit play at least one or two nine-inning games in the field during his rehab assignment before most likely bringing him back from the injured list ahead of next week's series versus the Royals. Voit has been sidelined since May 25 with a Grade 2 oblique strain.

The first baseman has increased his activity of late, including taking more swings, as he works his way back from a Grade 2 oblique strain.

Voit (oblique) is increasing his volume of swings and could begin a rehab assignment next week, the Associated Press reports. Voit has been on the 10-day injured list since May 26 with a Grade 2 right oblique strain, but he appears to be progressing toward a return. He would likely need a few minor-league rehab games to get back up to speed, which puts his target date to rejoin the big club at sometime in late June. Voit has played in only 12 games this year as a result of this injury and knee surgery that delayed the start of his season.

The slugger, who was placed on the 10-day IL on May 26, will likely need to make multiple appearances in the minors before he's ready to rejoin the Yankees lineup.
