Yankees first baseman Luke Voit was pulled from Saturday's game with the Colorado Rockies after being hit by a pitch in his mouth/jaw area.
In the bottom of the fourth inning, Voit was hit by a Chad Bettis fastball, as the ball may have skimmed his shoulder before making solid contact with his lip and jaw. Voit stayed in the game initially, coming around to score on a Gleyber Torres single.
After the inning ended, Voit was replaced in the lineup by Gio Urshela, as DJ LeMahieu moved over to first base.
The Yankees announced that Voit was pulled for precautionary reasons and went through concussion tests, all of which he cleared. There are no further tests scheduled for Voit, who ran the bases with a bloody lower lip following the hit-by-pitch.
"Going through the tests obviously was fine, and then speaking to him right after, I feel like he should be okay," Aaron Boone said after the game.
Boone also said that he felt good about Voit's status even before they pulled him from Saturday's 11-5 win.
