1B - CIN - IL10

Votto was hit by a pitch on Wednesday and will likely miss a month of action. The move is being made retroactive to May 6th.
Reds 1B Joey Votto fractured his left thumb in Wednesday’s 1-0 win over the White Sox.
Votto exited Wednesday’s game against the White Sox early with a fractured left thumb. He was hit by a pitch in the bottom of the fourth inning and was replaced in the game by Kyle Farmer. He was 0-for-1 in his only plate appearance before exiting. “It’s going to be weeks for sure,” said Reds manager David Bell. Fantasy managers should be prepared to be without Votto for an extended period. Kyle Farmer should see an uptick in playing time while Votto is sidelined.
