Reds | Joey Votto sitting vs. tough lefty

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 13:41:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 17. 2B Chris Dominguez is batting sixth and playing first base against Detroit Tigers SP David Price Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) was due for a night off, and there might not be any better time than against a daunting southpaw. For the season, Votto has a .943 OPS with 14 home runs and appears to be in the midst of a bounce-back campaign. Dominguez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Reds | Joey Votto hitting third

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 13:35:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is hitting third Saturday, June 13, against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) was moved down a spot to third yesterday, and he looks to have a home there with Billy Hamilton hitting ninth. He has three leadoff-type guys ahead of him and figures to have plenty of RBI opportunities. With a .320-3-5 mark over the last seven days, he's a great start on FantasyScore.

Reds | Joey Votto tees off vs. Phillies

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 19:21:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto hit three home runs with four scored and four driven in during the Reds' 11-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: Votto's ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) outburst brought his slash line up to .300/.406/.560 for the season, as he continues his rebound campaign. And he now has a respectable 13 home runs and 35 RBI. FantasyScore owners will want to be somewhat picky when utilizing Votto in contests, because first base is arguably the deepest position in daily fantasy. However, he has reestablished himself a reliable option in all fantasy formats, but especially in on-base percentage ones.

Reds | Joey Votto warming back up

Sat, 30 May 2015 18:58:53 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored in an 8-5 win over the Washington Nationals Saturday, May 30, and he is 3-for-7 with two home runs, three RBIs and three runs scored over his past two games.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) had been ice cold this month, and he had zero home runs and just four RBIs prior to his last two games. He isn't entering must-start territory yet at FantasyScore, but he should no longer be considered off limits either.

Reds | Joey Votto lacking power

Thu, 14 May 2015 18:01:09 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto doesn't have an extra-base hit in May as of Thursday, May 14, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) had seven home runs, four doubles and one triple through 22 games in March and April, but he has just 11 singles through the first 11 games in May. Votto has already grounded into four double plays this month, compared to just one in the first 22 games of the season. Owners need to be patient and allow the good and bad luck to even out.

Reds | Joey Votto suspended

Fri, 08 May 2015 13:16:09 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto was suspended for one game and fined Friday, May 8, for bumping an ump after he was ejected from a game earlier this week.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Votto isn't appealing and will serve the one-game suspension Friday night, since he's not in the lineup. Devin Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is the DH and is hitting cleanup as a result, with Kris Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) getting the start at first base. Mesoraco becomes a real sneaky cheap FantasyScore value play while hitting in the middle of the lineup against struggling Chicago White Sox starter Hector Noesi. Negron remains a weak sleeper pick.

Reds | Joey Votto ejected, bumps umpire

Wed, 06 May 2015 18:49:20 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto was ejected from the game Wednesday, May 7, against the Pittsburgh Pirates and he also made contact with the umpire.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain what kind of disciplinary action Votto will be facing, but he is likely to be fined and possibly suspended for making contact with an ump. That's generally a no-no. FantasyScore players will want to double-check to make sure Votto isn't suspended before plugging him into your lineup.

Reds | Joey Votto swinging more

Tue, 05 May 2015 11:46:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is taking 58.8% of pitches thrown at him and seeing 4.24 pitches per plate appearance, but he's also swinging at more than 70% of pitches inside the strike zone in 2015 for the first time since his MVP season in 2010, per FanGraphs. He's hitting .385 with a 1.154 OPS when he swings at the first pitch, which he's doing 4.8% more often than he did in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: The most important thing for Votto ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) appears to be that he's fully healthy after seeing his power sapped due to injuries in the last couple of years. He looks primed for a rebound season, and you should feel very comfortable rolling with him at FantasyScore right now.

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 07:09:55 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Kris Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is in at first, but he's not an option on FantasyScore.

Reds | Joey Votto snaps hitless skid

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 20:10:45 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto had a pair of hits, including a solo home run, in four at-bats Tuesday, April 28, against the Milwaukee Brewers. The multi-hit game snapped an 0-for-15 skid.

Fantasy Tip: At just $5,000 (or 10.0% of cap) Votto is a great mid-level source of power for FantasyScore owners, but he needs to start to hit with some consistency and avoid multi-game hitless slides. He already has seven homers this season.
