News: Votto hit a two-run homer that led the Cincinnati Reds over the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0 on Wednesday for their first winning series this season. Impact: Votto has all four of his home runs and eight of his nine RBIs in the past six games. He's boosted his average to .327 by going 9 for 20 (.450) in that stretch.(STATS, 8:20pm)

News: Votto is 5 for 7 with two walks in the first two games of a series vs. the Bucs. Impact: Votto knows how to get on base and slug the baseball, as seen by his 1.014 OPS.(STATS, 11:45am)

News: Votto went 4-for-4 on Tuesday night against the Pirates, continuing his recent hot streak. Impact: Votto started to turn the ship around a week ago in St. Louis with a two-hit night and continued that through the last eight days. He'll have a tough matchup Wednesday against Francisco Liriano, but he's back to vintage Votto as of late.(RotoWire, )

News: Batting second in the order for the second consecutive day, Votto went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored. Impact: Votto's solid OBP makes him an ideal candidate to hit second behind Billy Hamilton, but his power was what proved valuable to fantasy owners Sunday afternoon. It remains unclear whether this move will be permanent, but seeing as the Reds put up a season-best 12 runs Sunday, it looks as if this lineup is working for manager Bryan Price. Votto now has two homers, three doubles and seven walks on the young season.(RotoWire, )

News: Votto was 1 for 3 with his first home run of the season in Friday's loss to Tampa Bay. Impact: It's still a disappointing start for Votto - who is batting .257 through 10 games - but maybe Friday's homer will help him pick up steam.(STATS, 5:35pm)
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Votto has been moved to second in the batting order for Saturday's game against the Rays, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Impact: In a way, this makes a lot of sense: Votto's patience is a lot more valuable higher in the order, especially if Billy Hamilton is on base. There's no word yet from manager Bryan Price whether this is a permanent choice.(RotoWire, )

News: Votto hit his first homer of the season Friday in a loss against the Rays. Impact: Now hitting just .257, it was only his second RBI over the Reds' first 10 games. He's off to a sluggish start, but he is likely to fill up a lot of box scores before the season gets along much further.(RotoWire, )

News: Votto went 3 for 4 on Thursday for the Reds. Impact: Votto is 5 for 11 but has yet to record an RBI.(STATS, 5:12pm)
