Reds 1B Joey Votto looking to snap mini-hitless streak
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/29/15) Reds first baseman Joey Votto heads into Monday's game against the Twins having gone hitless in his last three games (0 for 11).
He is in the lineup to face Twins starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey, who Votto has a favorable history against. Votto is batting .357 (5 for 14) with one double, three home runs, five RBI, one walk and three strikeouts in his career against the right-hander.
Despite his recent three-game hitless streak, Votto has done well in June. He has a .286/.414/.527/.942 slash line in 25 games this month. He also has one triple, five doubles, five home runs, 12 RBI, 16 runs, 20 walks and 21 strikeouts in that span.

Reds 1B Joey Votto crushes three home runs in blowout win
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/9/15) Reds first baseman Joey Votto went yard three times in Tuesday night's 11-2 blowout victory over the Phillies.
Votto hit solo home runs off of Aaron Harang in the third and fifth innings and then crushed a two-run homer off of Dustin McGowan in the seventh. This is the first time this season that Votto has hit three home runs in one game.
"Boy he had a great game," Reds manager Bryan Price said of Votto, per MLB.com. "Really set the table in the first inning by getting the walk. Brandon [Phillips] and Joey each getting the game going with two walks and sets the stage for [Jay Bruce's] hit, an RBI, and [Zack] Cozart with the three-run homer, which gave us a nice early cushion.
Votto now has 13 home runs for the season. He finished the game 3 for 4 and drew a walk. He's now hitting .300/.406/.560.
|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.
