Latest Update Votto 'doing great' with offseason rehab work Fri Nov, 14, 05:16 PM
Has a fantastic bat: hits for near-elite power while showing superb patience and a great eye for contact. A good RBI producer, he also runs the bases well.
Flaws: : Is mildly injury-prone. Strikes out a little too much. Makes his share of errors at first base. Lacks consistency. At times, he gets frustrated with the lack of good pitches he sees.
Since inking a mega 10 year $225 million contract extension with the Reds, Votto has been a bit of a disappointment in Cincinnati. It is clear that he still has a knack for getting on base, boasting a career .417 OBP, but his dip in power and recent run ins with injuries has been the most concerning trait of the first basemen. Its safe to say that Votto has a lot to prove going into the 2015 season. Analyst: Dom Murtha
There was no reason for the Reds to rush Votto back for some meaningless games in the last week of the season. While it is encouraging that Votto will be healthy for the beginning of next year, he's becoming a major injury concern and his fantasy value is only going to decrease heading into next season. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
For the fantasy owners. it's almost a moot point. Whether Votto comes back or not, the help he is capable of providing these days is middle-of-the-road at best. We're glad to hear he's feeling better, but he's a non-factor in fantasy right now.Analyst: Howard Bender
Continued batting practice and running the bases are good signs for Votto's potential return this season. The coaches and trainers will continue to monitor him and if all goes well, he could be back in the lineup Monday.Analyst: Howard Bender
