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.

I hate Baker, but Votto did nothing to help his own cause...

Yeah, this news is disappointing but not all that surprising. We have a 25 man roster, so I'll stash him on the bench and see how things pan out.

I would say it depends upon how deep your bench is. I have a 25 man roster, so I will hold onto him for a while to see how it plays out before I make a move with him.

In a shorter bench like I have in another league, I will wait about 2 weeks to see how it plays out.

...and who's available on the WW. Conor Jackson is available in mine and I may have to make the move.
