If Luke Voit had played 80 games instead of 39 as a Yankee, there is a chance he would be in the discussion with teammate Miguel Andujar for AL Rookie of the Year.
Voit’s two-run homer in the fourth inning of Sunday’s season-ending, 10-2 loss to the Red Sox in front of a sold-out Fenway Park gathering of 36,201 was the only positive in a very sloppy defeat.
“This is the first time I got the opportunity [to play consistently],” said Voit, who hit 14 homers, drove in 33 runs and hit .333 after being acquired from the Cardinals on July 28. “Working with the hitting coaches and learning a lot. And I am finally getting a chance to play every day.”
