Padres' Luke Voit: Managing hamstring soreness

Voit isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies due to hamstring soreness, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Voit has been an everyday player for the Padres this season, and he's out of the lineup Thursday for the first time since May 24. Manager Bob Melvin said that Voit could have played, but the team wanted to be safe by keeping him out of the starting nine. The 31-year-old should be considered day-to-day for now.

WATCH: Yankees prospect from Luke Voit trade throws heat

TAMPA — When the Yankees looked to trade first baseman Luke Voit in spring training, they wanted upside in return. So, they finally settled on the Padres’ offer of right-handed pitching prospect Justin Lange, who has all the traits of a big-time pitcher. He’s 6-foot-4. He’s 220 pounds. He throws gas.

Luke Voit slights Aaron Judge, Yankees by picking ‘best player’ he’s ever played with

Luke Voit was a breath of fresh air during his time with the New York Yankees (except defensively), and was universally beloved from the day he began mashing to the day he came down with foot stuff. Things ended bizarrely between the two parties, though, resulting in some strange benchings during team-wide 2021 slumps, and a lack of acknowledgment during the start of the Anthony Rizzo Era.

Padres' Luke Voit: Solo shot in loss

Voit went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and an additional run scored in Sunday's loss against the Rockies. Voit took Antonio Senzatela deep in the second inning to give the Padres a short-lived lead. He later came around to score on an Austin Nola homer in the eighth. Voit had a slow start to the year, but he has picked things up in June with eight multi-hit affairs in 19 games this month. The first baseman is on a three-game hitting streak and has raised his season batting average to .245.

Luke Voit believes only one other player is at Aaron Judge’s level

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire: Spencer Strider scintillates; Luke Voit, Nate Lowe begin to prove their worth

If you wondered what the hype surrounding Spencer Strider was all about, hopefully you get it now. The Nationals were utterly helpless against him Wednesday. They knew what was coming but could only flail at it sheepishly before retreating to the dugout, seemingly embarrassed to have made the attempt. He even made Keibert Ruiz look like he was swinging with his eyes closed, and that guy always puts bat to ball.

Luke Voit Was Allowed to Hit Against a Position Player Pitching and It's a Miracle Someone Wasn't Hurt

No actual pitcher on the Chicago Cubs roster had much success retiring San Diego Padres hitters last night as the visitors enjoyed a 16-5 lead entering the ninth inning. So there was nothing else to do but allow first baseman Frank Schwindel to take the mound and steer into the weirdness. This afforded Luke Voit the opportunity to have a stress-free at-bat against someone throwing pure puss and the slugger did not hesitate in capitalizing. Embedded below is the pure violence Voit brought to Wrigley when everyone was just trying to have a laugh.

Padres' Luke Voit: Cashes in five

Voit went 2-for-6 with a home run, two runs scored and five RBI in a 12-5 win over the Cubs on Tuesday. With his team down by five in the sixth, Voit hit a two-run shot to put his team on the board. He would also cash in the go ahead-run on a bases-clearing, three-RBI double his very next at-bat. Voit is now slashing .226/.306/.396 on the season. Despite carrying a 33.9 percent strikeout rate, Voit is a mainstay in the heart of the Padres lineup and should continue to see plenty of RBI opportunities from the cleanup spot.

Padres' Luke Voit: Goes deep Monday

Voit went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run Monday in a loss to the Mets. The Padres trailed 7-2 entering the bottom of the eighth inning before Voit made things interesting with a three-run shot to center field. The Mets bounced back with four runs of their own in the following frame to put the game out of reach. Despite the loss, Voit continued a recent resurgence that has seen him slash .333/.355/.567 over his past seven games. Strikeouts remain a problem for the slugger, however, as he has fanned 11 times while taking only one walk over that span.
