|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Reds first baseman Joey Votto uncorked his sixth home run of the season during Tuesday night's 16-10 win over the Brewers in Milwaukee.
Votto took Tyler Thornburg deep in the top of the sixth inning for a solo home run. He added a single and reached base three times. He finished 2 for 5 with a walk, three runs scored, a home run and an RBI. He is hitting .377/.492/.792 on the year.
Reds first baseman Joey Votto rips fifth home run of the year

|(4/20/15) Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 2 for 4 at the plate Monday in Cincinnati's 6-1 win over the Brewers.
Votto struggled in his first two at-bats but was able to reach base in the sixth with a single. He was called out at home when trying to score on a grounder in the infield with the bases loaded. Votto then crushed the first pitch he saw from Wily Peralta over the left center field wall for a two-run blast, scoring Billy Hamilton.
It was Votto's fifth home run and 12th RBI of the year, leading the team in all offensive categories.
Reds' Joey Votto riding multihit games in hot start

|(4/20/15) Reds first baseman Joey Votto has quickly put a rocky 2014 season in the rearview mirror, hitting .364/.481/.727 with four home runs and 10 RBI in 44 at-bats.
Votto has built his hot start on the back of his multihit performances, as the first baseman has picked up multiple hits in seven of his first 12 games, including twice in the team's recent three-game series against the Cardinals. Unfortnately, the Reds were swept by their division rivals this weekend and have lost seven of their last eight games. Cincinnati will look to turn things around in a four-game series in Milwaukee that starts Monday.
Joey Votto homers twice in Reds win
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) Reds first baseman Joey Votto hit home runs in his first two at bats in a 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday. Votto hit two-run shots in the first and third innings, giving him three home runs on the year, or half as many as he had all of last season.
"The one was off a pretty good pitch," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said, per the Associated Press. "He just went out and drove it. We've seen him hit some pretty good pitches in the past, and he did today."
'He was terrific,'' manager Bryan Price said. ''He's doing a lot of things really well. It's nice to have him back with his athleticism.''
Votto had his tenth career multi-homer game and first since May 13, 2012.
Votto was two for three with a walk. He has eight RBI on the year and is hitting .412.
Reds 1B Joey Votto slugs first home run Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 1 for 4 with his first home run of the season in his team's 3-2 win over the Giants Thursday.
Votto came up with a man on base in the bottom of the sixth and his team down two runs, and his homer was able to tie the game. After the teams traded zeroes over the next few innings, the Reds were able to earn a win on a walkoff fielding error. Votto is 5 for 14 with one home run and four RBI after three games.
|2014 summary: Even before Joey Votto's season was derailed by two lengthy stays on the disabled list, he was on track to miss his sixth straight .300-plus season -- and by a lot. But alas, Votto did wind up spending the bulk of the Reds season on the DL, appearing in only 62 games due to a quad injury. When he made his first trip to the DL in mid-May, Votto was on pace to slightly exceed 2013's power output of 24 home runs and 30 doubles, but he was batting just .257. When he tried to come back in June, his power was almost completely absent, and when he'd played his last game in early July, Votto was batting .255 with six home runs and 16 doubles.|
Playing time status: Though Votto's season was decimated by his injury, he had played more than 160 games in two of the previous three seasons. He's something of a playing time risk but could easily be in the lineup virtually every day.
2015 outlook: Votto has now gone three season without being close to a 30-homer threat, but last season aside, he has been a lock for a .300-plus average and a .400-plus on-base percentage. It's unlikely that he will bat .083 on ground balls again as he did last year. Even with merely decent power, Votto could re-emerge as a top five first baseman. However, concerns about a healthy return could leave Votto undrafted through the first three rounds.
