Joey Votto joining Reds' bench Wednesday

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against left-hander Carlos Rodon and the Chicago White Sox.

What It Means:

The Reds also kept Votto out of the lineup in their previous game against a left-hander. Delino DeShields is replacing Votto as the Reds' designated hitter and Max Schrock is covering first base and batting eighth.

numberFire’s models project DeShields for 9.1 FanDuel points and he has a $2,300 salary on Wednesday’s slate. Schrock is projected for 9.4 FanDuel points with a $2,200 salary. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Reds have an implied total of 3.2 runs, which is currently third-lowest in the majors on Wednesday. Rodon is registering an xwOBA that ranks in the top 5% of the league this season, with a 35.1 strikeout percentage and a 6.6 walk percentage this season.
