Latest Update Votto is expected to take BP on Tuesday Tue Sep, 16, 04:55 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.
The Reds first baseman has been out since early July with strained quad. he still has a long way to go before returning to action and is not worth stashing in redraft fantasy leagues. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
You shouldn't even be concerning yourself with a return for Votto this season as his contribution if he does get back out there is going to be minimal. Best to just look towards 2015.Analyst: Howard Bender
And while that's all well and good for the Reds and their fans, it does almost nothing for fantasy owners. One week of a broken down, shell of a Joey Votto is not going to help tilt the scales in your favor in any category.Analyst: Howard Bender
That's a nice tease, or maybe not so nice for his fantasy owners. He has been less than stellar this season, so you have to wonder how far he is along in his rehab program to keep the hope alive that he will be activated in September.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
