Yankees Luke Voit celebrates HR home jersey

Luke Voit has been named the AL Player of the Week, it was announced Monday afternoon.

Voit was on a tear last week, slashing .476/.522/.905 over a six game span for the Yankees. His .905 slugging and 1.427 OPS led the American League.

The 2020 home run champ hit two bombs, three doubles and has 11 RBI as well.

“He’s playing great,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said pregame on Monday. “I think the biggest thing is he’s healthy and we know what kind of hitter he is when he’s healthy.

“…I think he’s confident…he knows what he’s capable of at the plate, and when he’s at his best he controls the zone well and hits the ball hard. That’s a good combination if you’re a hitter. But there’s no question that he’s risen to the occasion I think as these games have become very important for us.”

With Anthony Rizzo back from the COVID IL, the Yankees will have to balance out their first basemen/lineup situation, especially with the way Voit has been playing lately.

He’s been a big part of why the Yankees are currently riding a nine-game win streak and have a two-game lead for the top wild card spot in the AL.
