Joey Votto resting for Reds on Thursday afternoon
Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto is not starting on Thursday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Votto is just 5-for-26 (.192) with 6 strikeouts over the past week of action and has dealt with some back issues this month, so the 34-year-old veteran will get a breather. Brandon Dixon is starting at first base and batting seventh versus Pirates right-hander Ivan Nova on Thursday afternoon.
Votto is averaging 10.0 FanDuel points in 49 games this season. numberFire's models project him to hit .292 with 20 homers and 64 RBI over the rest of the year.
