THE BRONX — Yankees right-hander Corey Kluber is expected to miss at least two months with a right shoulder injury and first baseman Luke Voit is also headed to the injured list with a right oblique strain.

New York manager Aaron Boone announced the diagnoses shortly after the Yankees’ scheduled game against the Toronto Blue Jays was postponed due to a forecast of poor weather.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Thursday. Kluber was pulled after three innings Tuesday against Toronto in his first outing following a no-hitter last week.

An MRI on his shoulder Wednesday revealed a subscapularis strain.
