The Cincinnati Reds placed 1B Joey Votto (quadriceps) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, May 21, and activated OF Jay Bruce (knee) from the DL in a corresponding move. Votto's DL stint is retroactive to May 16.
Fantasy Tip: The good news here is the Reds seriously considered having Votto avoid the DL, because his injury wasn't too serious, and it's not related to his surgically repaired knee. He may not need that much time before returning, but stay tuned. In his absence, the Reds are likely to use some combination of Todd Frazier, Neftali Soto and Brayan Pena at first base. Soto deserves some mild attention in NL-only leagues in the short term.

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto (knee) underwent an MRI exam on his left knee Friday, May 16, and he's likely to go on the disabled list, according to sources. It is the same knee that he had surgery on back in 2012.
Fantasy Tip: This could be a serious injury for Votto that could keep him out well beyond the 15-day DL stint. Plan for the worst. In Votto's absence, perhaps the Reds will slide Todd Frazier over to first base and insert Ramon Santiago in at the hot corner. Skip Schumaker is another option to fill in wherever needed at the corner infield spots. Santiago and Schumaker are only mildly attractive options in NL-only leagues with increased playing time.

Following the game, he said he had been battling the injury for a while. "They know it's been going on for a little bit - nothing popped or anything like that," Frazier said. "It's just a day off would help it out 100 percent. I'm not really worried about it, I'm just being cautious."
