Reds' Joey Votto: Launches first home run

Votto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 3-0 win over the Giants.Votto was hitless in his first two at-bats but connected on a heater just two pitches into the sixth and sent it into McCovey Cove in right to extend the Reds' lead to 3-0. The 37-year-old has lost touch with the long ball in recent years despite his home field being one of the more home run-friendly ballparks in the entire MLB. Fantasy managers should temper expectations for Votto in his 15th season, as he's still the team's everyday first baseman, but hasn't produced elite numbers at the plate since he had 36 home runs and 100 RBI in 2017.

Reds' Joey Votto: Uncharacteristic day

Votto went 1-for-5 with an RBI in Thursday's Opening Day loss to the Cardinals, and hit two infield pop-outs in one game for the first time since his rookie season in 2008, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.Votto returned to spring training game action only on Friday last week after being on the COVID-IL list, so seeing him a little off his game should be expected. Not only did he have the highly unusual infield pop-ups, but he also had trouble scooping two balls in the dirt. This isn't necessarily a harbinger of things to come for Votto.

Reds' Joey Votto: Returns to lineup

Votto (COVID-19) will bat third and play first base Friday against Arizona, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Votto tested positive for COVID-19 in mid-March but has been back with the team for workouts for the past several days. He'd only gotten into four spring games prior to coming down with the illness, so it remains to be seen whether or not he can get up to full speed by Opening Day.
