Top Joey Votto News

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Lifts 11th homer

    Votto went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Brewers.

    Votto is now 10-for-29 (.345) over his last nine games, hitting safely in eight of them in one of his longest hot stretches of the year. He's collected three of his 11 homers this year in that span. The 38-year-old's surge has lifted his slash line to .224/.341/.406, but all of those would be career-worst marks for a full season. He's added 39 RBI, 30 runs scored, 17 doubles and one triple through 82 contests.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Homers in second straight

    Votto went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in an 8-2 victory over the Orioles on Saturday.

    Votto went deep for the second game in a row to raise his home-run total to 10 on the year. The veteran first baseman has now posted double-digit home runs in every season since 2015. Votto got off to a miserable start in 2022, and his season-long numbers represent a major drop-off from his impressive 36 home-run season in 2021, when he slashed .266/.375/.563.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Back in lineup Tuesday

    Votto (back) is batting cleanup and playing first base Tuesday in New York.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Remains sidelined

    Votto (back) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    Mike Moustakas will once again fill in at first base for Votto, who is on the bench for the seventh consecutive game on account of back tightness. Votto hasn't made any pinch-hitting appearances over the past five contests, suggesting a stint on the 10-day injured list could still be on the table for the 38-year-old. For now, he can be viewed as day-to-day in advance of the Reds' three-game series with the Yankees, which begins Tuesday.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Remains on bench for nightcap

    Votto (back) isn't starting the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Pirates.

    Votto has been dealing with back tightness recently and will remain out of the lineup for a fourth consecutive game. He didn't appear in the first game of the twin bill, and it's not clear whether he'll be available off the bench during the nightcap. Mike Moustakas is starting at first base and batting sixth.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Sitting for first game of twin bill

    Votto (back) is out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Pirates.

    Even if back tightness hadn't kept him out of the lineup the past two days, Votto may have been a candidate to sit out one game of the doubleheader. As such, Votto could still have a chance at being ready to go for the nightcap, depending how much progress he made overnight in his recovery from the back issue. Mike Moustakas will cover first base in Votto's stead for Game 1.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Dealing with back tightness

    Votto isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets due to back tightness, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Votto was absent from Tuesday's lineup due to what manager David Bell called a "recovery day," but Bell revealed that the first baseman's exclusion from Wednesday's starting nine is due to a back issue. The 38-year-old should be considered day-to-day for now, but Donovan Solano should continue to see increased at-bats if Votto is forced to miss additional time.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Sitting once again

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Collects three hits Thursday

    Votto went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in a loss to the Cubs on Thursday.

    Votto's fourth-inning infield single led to Cincinnati's first run as a result of a Chicago error. The veteran first baseman then went deep in the sixth frame for his sixth long ball of the campaign. After a brutal start to the season, Votto perked up at the plate in June, slashing .274/.361/.495 with four homers, 15 RBI and 14 runs over 26 games.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Hits two doubles

    Votto went 2-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in a 10-3 win over the Giants on Sunday.

    Votto had come into the game riding a cold stretch, slashing a weak .190/.261/.214 over the past 15 days. The two-double day at the plate gives him 13 doubles on the campaign and lifts his season average to .213. Votto got off to a terrible start this year and is hoping to right the ship in the time that remains. He has never hit below .261 in a full season's worth of at-bats.
