Aaron Boone: Luke Voit will play big role down stretch

The Score

New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone said first baseman Luke Voit won't be relegated to the bench as the team makes its push for a playoff spot.

Boone's comments come in the wake of Voit saying Tuesday that he deserves to be in the lineup just as much as deadline acquisition Anthony Rizzo.

"Luke and I have talked," Boone said. "The bottom line is hopefully we continue to get guys back and we remain healthy. The bottom line is Luke's gonna play a big role on this team moving forward. I think you can all kind of look at it, envision him in the lineup a lot. Whereas you're moving guys around, giving a guy a day here or there, and Luke factors into that a ton."

Voit isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox as Rizzo makes his return from the COVID-19 IL.
