Recommendation: Votto will still probably get a half-share of playing time at first base, though it won't be a platoon with both him and Hatteberg batting lefty.

Votto made the team with the Reds, but he is not the opening day starter.
The Reds wanted Votto to begin the year as the every day first baseman, but a poor spring keeps Hatteberg at first base. Votto will be a member of 2/3 player platoon until he secures the job, which if he performs well, may happen as early as mid-April.
