Insight: Votto (.255, 6 HR, 23 RBI, .799 OPS) has been dealing with a left quad strain since May. He spent nearly a month on the disabled list and batted .250 with zero homers and 11 RBI in 23 games after returning before going back on it on July 8.

Description: The Reds Joey Votto has been placed on the disabled list due to a quad injury.
Insight: Votto (.255, 6 HR, 23 RBI, .799 OPS) had zero homers since he returned from the same injury on June 10 after spending nearly a month on the disabled list and he clearly needs more time off. He'll get it. Jay Bruce, Todd Frazier and Brayan Pena will all likely see time at 1B.

Insight: Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported Sunday that Votto (.255, 6 HR, 23 RBI, .799 OPS) was going to go on the DL with a strained left quad and he likely still will. He's batted just .250 with zero homers since he returned from the same injury on June 10 after spending nearly a month on the disabled list and he clearly needs more time off.

Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto (knee/quad) will be placed on the DL, according to Ken Rosenthal.
Insight: Votto (.255, 6 HR, 23 RBI, .799 OPS) hasn't homered since May and might as well get sit out and get healthy because he's not doing fantasy owners any good limping around at 60 percent.

Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto (knee/quad) will sit out Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Insight: Votto (.255, 6 HR, 23 RBI, .799 OPS) hasn't homered since May and can probably use some time off. At this time he isn't fantasy worthy.
 
Cold7/4/2014 10:31:00 AM
Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto (knee/quad) limped his way through the recent road trip and is a shell of the player fantasy owners are used to seeing.
Insight: Votto has batted .263 with zero homers, 10 RBI and a .729 OPS in 21 games since he returned from the disabled list. At this point he's providing no power and can't be installed in lineups. Another trip to the DL could be in his near future.

Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto is getting a day off Wednesday, according to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

6/25/2014 11:20:00 AM
Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto is a career .381 hitter with two homers and three doubles against Cubs starter Edwin Jackson.
Insight: Votto's season has been a disappointment so far and his home-road splits are concerning. Despite his success against Jackson, he's hit all six of his home runs at Great American Ballpark and is batting .326 there as opposed to .204 on the road. If this game wasn't at Wrigley, he'd be a much stronger play.
 
6/12/2014 11:14:00 AM

Insight: Votto has a hit in each of the two games since returning from the disabled list. He's batting just .259 with six homers and 14 RBI in 41 games.
 
6/10/2014 3:25:00 PM
Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto (quad) has been activated from the disabled list and will bat third Tuesday versus the Dodgers.
Insight: Votto has started slowly, batting just .257 with six homers and 12 RBI, but he's still worth owning in fantasy. He's 3-for-3 in his career against tonight's starting pitcher, Josh Beckett.
 
6/7/2014 3:02:00 PM
Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto (quad) is scheduled to head out on a short rehab assignment beginning Sunday.
Insight: Votto is expected to play just one or two games down on the farm and be ready to go, perhaps as early as this weekend. He's started slowly, batting just .257, but he's almost always a must start when healthy.
 
6/3/2014 12:08:00 AM

Insight: Votto is expected to play just one or two games down on the farm and be ready to go, perhaps as early as this weekend. He's started slowly, batting just .257, but he's almost always a must start when healthy.

Insight: Votto was hoping to return this weekend, but the team will give him more time to get healthy. The move was made retroactive to May 16, so Votto is eligible to return on June 1. He should be back around that date.
 
5/20/2014 5:08:00 PM
Description: Reds manager Bryan Price said Tuesday that he is "optimistic" Joey Votto (quad) will return to the lineup Friday against the Cardinals, according to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Insight: Votto will sit out Tuesday and Wednesday and the Reds have a day off Thursday. The first baseman hasn't played since May 15.
 
5/19/2014 11:13:00 AM
Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto will miss Monday's game against Washington due to a strained left quadriceps
Insight: That's good news as the team was worried about his surgically-repaired left knee. He's batting .257 with six homers and 12 RBI. Still a very patient hitter, fantasy owners would like to see him get more aggressive and take less walks.
 
5/16/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: According to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Reds first baseman Joey Votto's MRI revealed no structural damage in his knee.
Insight: Votto has a left quad strain and won't be placed on the disabled list yet. It's relatively good news because it initially appeared that the first baseman hurt his left knee, which was surgically repaired in 2012.
 
5/16/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto did not travel to Philadelphia with the rest of the team and could be headed for the disabled list, according to Ken Rosenthal.
Insight: Votto's batting average is down about 50 points from last season and he is once again a very patient hitter, leading the league with 33 walks, but his left knee has apparently been acting up and we await the results of an MRI.
 
5/16/2014 9:54:00 AM

Insight: Votto's batting average is down about 50 points from last season and he is once again a very patient hitter, leading the league with 33 walks, but he's still a viable fantasy option. Beware of bad weather along the east coast which could make this selection a bit of a gamble.
 
5/10/2014 1:26:00 PM
Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto is a career .667 (6-for-9) versus Rockies hurler Jordan Lyles.
Insight: He's batting .409 with five homers, but just 11 RBI. Perhaps this is a result of losing Shin-Soo Choo at the top of the lineup. Votto is once again a very patient hitter, leading the league with 28 walks.
 
5/9/2014 9:53:00 PM
Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 1-for-4 with a walk-off solo homer Friday against Colorado.
Insight: Votto is batting just .262 this season and has 11 RBI in 122 at-bats. He has gone 3-for-18 with runners in scoring position while walking 11 times in those situations. Votto often has been content to take a walk with men on base rather than expanding the zone and has driven in just 84 runs in his last 880 plate appearances.
