Profile: Remember when Votto concluded the month of May with just a .213 batting average, driven by a suppressed .254 BABIP? Probably not. Because his next four months more than made up for the slow start, as he batted a crazy .378, thanks to a .409 BABIP, and finished the year generally in line with his 2015 season. Heading into his age 33 season, we would expect to find some signs of skill deterioration, but he just posted the second lowest strikeout rate of his career, the second highest HR/FB rate of his career, and continues to maintain a pristine batted ball profile chock full of line drives and absent of pop-ups. I can't believe those bonus steals will continue to come and I wouldn't bank on another 20%+ HR/FB rate. However, he remains solid as a rock with a beautiful overall set of skills. (Mike Podhorzer)

The Quick Opinion: Feel free to stare at Votto's immaculate batted ball profile, as it drives that inflated BABIP and allows him to hit well over .300 season after season. Even heading into his age 33 season, there are no signs of decline, so he should once again be a power source and strong batting average contributor.
