Joey Votto is having another good season for the Reds and he will be force in their lineup for years to come. The power numbers for him are down from years past with him only hitting 16 HRs and having 47 RBIs. However the opposition still has to respect his bat and if a pitcher makes a mistake expect him to hit the ball a long way. He has a .317/.429/.931 triple-slash in 388 at-bats this season with 20 Doubles. He is 7th in the NL with 195 Total Bases, and is also 8th with a WAR of 4.7. Votto is 1st in Times On Base in the NL at 202.

The Cincinnati Reds are playing well this season with them winning 59 games, but they are five games out of first place. The Reds are 3rd in the National League Central division behind both the Pittsburgh Pirates and St.Louis Cardinals.

Cincinnati is third in the NL with them scoring 463 runs on the season. They are great at home, and have the 2nd best home record in the NL. The problem for them is hitting away Great American Ball Park with winning just 27 games and three games under .500 on the road.

Thoughts Going Forward:

The Reds are in a very competitive division and the teams in their division will only improve in the coming years. Cincinnati has a chance to make the playoffs and if some players get healthy they can make a deep run. 

Brandon Phillips is one of the players leading the charge of offense for the Reds this season.  He has a .261 batting average with a .716 OPS to go along with 12 HRs and 81 RBIs in 387 at-bats. He is great at playing defense with him winning the Gold Glove Award at second base multiple times in his career. He often makes highlight reel plays on a daily basis, and that is one reason he has the 2nd best Fielding % in the NL at second base with it at .987. Phillips has a batting average of .260 against right-handers, and is hitting .262 dealing with southpaws. He is outstanding with runner in scoring position, as indicated by a .396 average and a 1.011 OPS with 68 RBIs in this situation.
