Reds | Joey Votto hits milestone homer

Tue, 31 May 2016 00:01:09 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto smacked his 200th career home run Monday, May 30, against the Colorado Rockies. He finished 2-for-5 with a double, the homer and three RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Votto is stumbling along with a .213 batting average, but he still has 29 RBIs to be somewhat productive for fantasy owners.

Reds | Billy Hamilton hitting seventh

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:42:31 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton was dropped to seventh in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger Tuesday, May 24. 1B Joey Votto is in the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton continues to struggle to find ways on base to utilize his speed (eight stolen bases). He's hitting .254 in May and has only four steals. The move down the order limits his opportunities to run, making him an even weaker daily pick tonight. Votto is struggling himself at the dish, but hopefully for his owners a move to the two-hole can get him going.

Reds | Joey Votto sitting out

Wed, 11 May 2016 11:25:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, with 2B Brandon Phillips moving up to the three-hole. 1B Jordan Pacheco is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: BP has a .333-5-9 line the last week. Digest that, and plug him in against Juan Nicasio today. Pacheco is hitting .241 without an RBI and isn't worth much consideration.

Reds | Joey Votto showing signs of life

Fri, 06 May 2016 19:19:50 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, two runs scored and two walks in a 5-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Votto has endured a terrible start to the year, but he has drawn five walks over the last two games, so it seems like he is starting to see the ball better. Your window to try to buy low on Votto is rapidly closing.

Reds | Joey Votto powers up against old mate

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:35:30 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto, his former teammate, in a loss Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Votto tied a season best with the three runs driven in. He has started to pick up the pace over the past nine games, driving in eight runs. However, he is still hitting just .231, and he has only four extra-base hits in 91 at-bats. Stick with him, though, as he is too valuable to consider dropping.

Reds | Joey Votto had terrible April

Mon, 02 May 2016 09:49:59 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto's .640 OPS in April was the worst full month of his career, and he was 0-for-19 at one point, which was his longest hitless streak of his career. He finished the month hitting .325 (9-for-25) but had a slash line of just .229/.327/.313 with two home runs and a double on the month. Votto said he would prefer to retire from the game rather than play at a poor level. He has eight years and $199 million left on his current deal.

Fantasy Tip: The retirement talk is a little overblown. Votto is off to a slow start, sure, but he's an elite hitter that should bounce back over the coming months. There is reason to have concerns, though, especially with a weak lineup around him. This would be a great time to try and buy low on Votto, but keep in mind that his runs and RBI opportunities will be limited on a rebuilding club.

Reds | Joey Votto talks retirement

Sun, 01 May 2016 20:41:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto said he would rather retire than continue to play at a poor level.

Fantasy Tip: Votto is speaking out of frustration due to his terrible start, and he is too good of a hitter to struggle for the entire year. Consider him a buy-low candidate.

Reds | Joey Votto mired in career low streak

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 10:34:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went hitless Thursday, April 21, against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta, putting him in a 0-for-19 slump. It's the first time in his career he's gone five straight games without a hit.

Fantasy Tip: Seemingly everyone on the Reds has cooled off since their hot start. A veteran like Votto, though, knows this happens to everyone and it's inevitable he'll snap out of it. The former NL MVP is only hitting .172 on the year with one home run and seven RBI, but as long as he stays healthy, he should end up around .300 with about 25 homers. He'll be fine.

Reds | Joey Votto drives in three

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 05:29:29 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 1-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Votto was off to a quiet start early in the season but has at least one hit in each of his last four games. Votto should be a starting candidates in all leagues because he will be in the starting lineup for most of the time.

Reds | Joey Votto on a mission

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 15:32:10 -0700

Scouts have raved about Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto this spring, and he looks like he's on a mission.

Fantasy Tip: Votto's power resurfaced in the second half last year, and coupled with his patient approach and on-base skills, he remains in the upper-tier of fantasy first basemen. If your draft room allows him to fall because of the lack of talent around him in Cincy, make them pay.
