Description: Reds first baseman Joey Votto is not up to "game speed," according to manager Bryan Price.
Insight: Votto (knee) should be healthy at the start of the season and has a .310/.417/.533 career slash line. Of course, he was nowhere close to that in 2014 when he hit .255 with six homers and 23 RBI in 62 games. Hopefully the batting stroke will return.

Insight: That's reassuring for a first baseman who missed 100 games last season due to a distal quad strain. Votto should be healthy at the start of the season and has a .310/.417/.533 career slash line.
 
9/21/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: The return of Reds first baseman Joey Votto this season is looking doubtful according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Insight: Votto has taken batting practice and ran the bases this week, but according to Reds manager Bryan Price, he is not pain free. The club has little incentive to bring back the former MVP for one meaningless week of baseball, so we do not expect to see him again until 2015.

Description: Reds 1B Joey Votto (quad) made the trip to Milwaukee with the team.
Insight: We still don't have a timetable for his return, but this is encouraging news.
 
8/29/2014 5:28:00 PM
Description: Reds manager Bryan Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer that Joey Votto (quad) had "some fairly significant discomfort when he got lateral side-to-side" while fielding ground balls on Wednesday.
Insight: Cincinnati does not look ready to shut Votto down completely, but with the Reds playoffs chances dwindling, it looks less likely that he will make a comeback this season. Do not count on him for your fantasy playoff run.

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.

Description: The Reds are waiting for test results on Joey Votto's quad before they place him on the disabled list, according to Mark Sheldon of mlb.com.
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.
 
Cold7/6/2014 5:20:00 PM
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.
 
Cold7/6/2014 10:41:00 AM
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.
