Joey Votto (1B, CIN) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~pick 120

CURRENT ADP: ~143 overall

ANALYSIS: It had been more than a decade--a decade as in like 10+ years!--since Votto lastly put up a Swing% above 43% (43.9 percent last year) as that had not been witnessed by any pair of eyes since the year 2010 when he went for a brutal 47.3% of the looks he got back then. Haters will say that hurt Votto's overall hitting game because his Contact% cratered to a career-low 73.5%, which is okay. Captain Obvious stating facts. Votto, just in case, had his forever-season-in a-row posting a .350+ OBP and, in fact, his best mark (.375) since 2018. Just saying. Oh, and Votto is entering his age-38 campaign.

To wit: 0.61 BB/K (again, trying to hit all pitches and then those pitches' sons and then some more) that ranked tied for the 24th-best mark among hitters with 530+ PA last season. Obviously, because Votto, he was one of just five mates among those 24 guys to finish the year with a 70/90 R/RBI baseline and 35+ home runs. Sure thing, he has the highest K% among them (23.8%), but do you know what he did to make up for that? Post the highest BB% of the Fantastic Five at a solid 14.4% and the second-best OPS at .938.
