Yankees: Luke Voit felt ‘betrayed’ after Anthony Rizzo trade

Yankees Luke Voit felt betrayed after Anthony Rizzo trade

The New York Yankees are having a rebirth at the key moment in the season of MLB, where they are getting closer and closer to the American League wild card, winning 7 of their last 10 meetings to 2.5 behind second place of the Wild Card, needing the help of all his players in this final stretch, with Luke Voit being key in that streak in the absence of his replacement, Anthony Rizzo, who arrived on the final trade date from the Chicago Cubs.

The reality is that after being the Major League home run champion in 2020, 2021 has been another story for Voit, who has struggled a lot with injuries, limiting him to 36 games this season and as mentioned by NJ.com’s Randy Miller, he felt quite a lot. bad after learning that the Yankees had acquired Anthony Rizzo to be their substitute, falling into a depressive episode.

When I found out about the change, I was very frustrated. Mentally, I felt very bad. I’ve done a lot for this organization and I never thought the Yankees would go to market for first base. But that’s what happens when you’ve only played 30 games in the season. But I get it, it’s part of the business.

This 2021, Voit is hitting .234 with 5 home runs and 17 RBIs in 36 games this year.

Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
