Reds | Joey Votto feels normal this spring

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 12:05:37 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto (quadriceps, knee), who missed 100 games last year with knee and quadriceps injuries, said he feels normal this spring even after being held out for the first four spring games.

Fantasy Tip: This is more of a better safe than sorry approach for Votto, whose power numbers can be explosive when he is healthy. For now, Votto should be drafted no earlier than the middle of most fantasy leagues as he recovers from numerous injuries.

Reds | Joey Votto to play Saturday

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 07:44:36 -0800

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto (quadriceps) will make his spring debut Saturday, March 7.

Fantasy Tip: Votto's power numbers have fallen off the map. Some of it can be attributed to health, but some has been due to his approach at the plate. He's still among the top 10 at the position, but he has fallen to the second half of that pack.

Reds | Joey Votto close to spring action

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 11:02:21 -0800

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto (quadriceps) is close to making his Cactus League debut, according to manager Bryan Price. Votto missed 100 games in 2014 with a distal strain of his left quadriceps, and he hasn't played in the team's first three spring games. Votto was more focused on strengthening his leg in the offseason, which has put him behind schedule in camp.

Fantasy Tip: Votto could very well make or break your 2015 fantasy baseball team. The main concern is whether Votto can bring back his power after hitting only six home runs in an injury-riddled 2014 season. At his current devalued price, Votto could be a steal if he proves to be back to full health and returns to the 20-homer mark.

Reds | Joey Votto feels great

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 15:08:03 -0800

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.
