Joey Votto (back) starting on Friday night

Joey Votto (back) is in Friday’s lineup versus the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

Votto left Wednesday’s game with mid-back stiffness but it was always considered a minor injury. The Reds were off on Thursday, which apparently gave Votto enough time to rest the injury. He’s batting second tonight versus Jesse Chavez.

Joey Votto leaves game with mid-back stiffness

Joey Votto was removed from Wednesday's game versus the Indians with mid-back stiffness.

Fantasy Impact

Votto has slowly but surely been getting his swing back lately, but he also keeps dealing with minor injury issues. He homered today before leaving and should be considered day-to-day.

Joey Votto hits solo homer Friday

Joey Votto went 2-for-4 with a solo home runin the Reds' 4-2 loss to the Phillies on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

This ended a long home run drought for Votto, who hadn't gone deep since May 14. Fears about age-related power look all but confirmed. Votto has even been hitting better lately, with a .419 AVG over his last ten games, but he also has a .140 ISO over that same stretch. His .253 AVG should be on the rise, and he'll provide a near-elite OBP, but it's hard to expect his power to return at this point.

Joey Votto has three-hit day Friday

Joey Votto went 3-for-4 with three singles, an RBI, and a run scored in the Reds' 9-3 win over the Nationals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Votto hadn't played since Monday due to a sore hamstring, but he picked up right where he left off before the injury. He now has five straight multi-hit games, and is riding a seven-game hit streak. He's raised his batting average to .253 over the past week, but his .121 ISO leaves much to be desired. Hopefully, this recent hot stretch is a sign of Votto turning things around.

Joey Votto (hamstring) returns to action Friday

Reds first baseman Joey Votto is back in the lineup for the team's Friday matchup against the Washington Nationals after missing the team's last two games with a tight hamstring.

Fantasy Impact

Votto was off to a terrible start to the season but was getting hot at the plate before the hamstring injury, posting multiple hit-performances in four straight games and raising his batting average from .215 to .242.
