28-Year-Old First Baseman1B
New York Yankees
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Yankees needed an insurance policy behind Greg Bird at first base. Many were underwhelmed when that player turned out to be Voit. Funny how things work out. He hit two homers in a game Aug. 26 and the Yankees decided to give him a longer look at first. Voit hit .323/.402/.707 in his final 28 games, relegating Bird to the bench and off the roster entirely for the Wild Card Game. He had an OPS over 1.000 against RHP and LHP. Voit had flashed some pop, but as a 22nd round pick in 2013 and a R/R first baseman, he was never considered much of a prospect. Given that lack of pedigree and his 26.7 K%, it's understandable to be skeptical of a player whose first big-league success came at age 27. However, everything in his batted-ball profile (47.0 Hard%, 35.0 GB%, 41.0 Pull%) suggests he deserved all the success he had last season. That does not mean he will replicate it, but there are not glaring red flags that suggest significant regression is coming. Read Past Outlooks

Voit hits the bench for the first time Saturday against the White Sox.
ANALYSIS
With the rash of injuries hitting the Yankees this season, Voit has been needed in an everyday role. He's shown good power, hitting four homers, but his batting average sits at just .184. Greg Bird starts at first base Saturday, with Clint Frazier starting in left field.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Voit was slashing .327/.407/.565 at Triple-A Memphis when he was called up by the Cardinals on June 24. The righty-swinging first baseman remained with the big-league team for the duration of the season, starting 19 games, 13 of which were in July. Voit complied a modest .246/.306/.430 line in his rookie campaign with four homers, three in July. As is the case with most first-year hitters, Voit's plate skills suffered in his initial foray against major-league pitching, fanning at a 25 percent clip, compared to a mark in the teens as he progressed through the Redbirds' system. Voit's six percent walk rate was also lower than his days on the farm. Depending on how the roster shakes out, Voit could be battling Jose Martinez for a roster spot, as they both hit from the right side and can dabble in the outfield.
