Luke Voit lands on injured list with sports hernia

Yankees first baseman Luke Voit landed back on the 10-day injured list with a sports hernia on Wednesday, and he could be out for a while.

Aaron Boone said Voit could be treated day-to-day or he may end up undergoing surgery, which would require about a six-week absence. Boone said he thought the Yankees would know more by Thursday.

Voit left Tuesday’s game after appearing to wince on a swing. Voit missed seven games earlier this month with an abdomen strain, and Boone didn’t rule out that the two injuries could be related.

Infielder Breyvic Valera was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Voit’s spot on the roster for Wednesday’s game against the Diamondbacks.

The Yankees’ injury woes didn’t stop there. David Hale was also put on the 10-day IL with a back strain, and Jonathan Holder was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.
