Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto (quadriceps) will not start the team's spring opener Tuesday, March 3, but he's been feeling much better this spring after playing in just 62 games due to a distal strain of his left quadriceps in 2014. He is slightly behind the others in terms of baseball shape in camp, but he hasn't shown any limitations with his leg. "I feel really good. I was surprised at how good I feel this early," Votto said. "I'm trending towards starting to play in games, hopefully here in the not too distant future."
Fantasy Tip: The main concern with Votto is if he'll be able to bring back his power after clubbing only six home runs in 2014. If he's fully healthy, there's a good chance he will be a great value pick in fantasy baseball drafts, and he should continue to be an excellent asset in leagues that count on-base percentage.
