  • Reds' Joey Votto: Likely to be delayed this spring

    Votto (shoulder) is likely going to be delayed at the start of spring training, Reds general manager Nick Krall said Monday.

    "Probably not," Krall said when asked of Votto's potential readiness for the beginning of camp. "I think he's going to be a little delayed there. That was expected at the beginning, from when he had surgery, that he wasn't going to be unlimited, full-go at the beginning. We'll just have to see where he comes in and go from there." Additionally, manager David Bell said of Votto's recovery from surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and torn biceps, that "it's been a tougher rehab than he anticipated." The skipper did note that it still wouldn't surprise him if Votto is ready to go on Opening Day but that more will be known once spring training gets underway. Votto has always been lauded for his work ethic, but he's also a 39-year-old coming off major surgery, so we can't count on him avoiding an injured list stint.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Undergoes season-ending surgery

    Votto was placed on the 60-day injured list Friday after undergoing surgery to repair his torn left rotator cuff, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    This officially ends Votto's 16th season in the majors. It was his worst campaign to date by fWAR (-0.7) and wRC+ (93). Votto slashed .205/.319/.370 with 11 home runs, 31 runs and 41 RBI in 91 games and is under contract through the 2023 season.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Requires season-ending surgery

    Votto will undergo season-ending surgery Friday to address a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Votto wasn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Philadelphia, and he's apparently dealing with a shoulder injury that will end his season. The 38-year-old struggled to get things going in 2022 and slashed .205/.319/.370 with 11 home runs, 41 RBI and 31 runs over 91 games. Matt Reynolds should see increased playing time at first base until Mike Moustakas (calf) is cleared to return. It's not yet clear whether Votto is expected to be healthy in time for spring training in 2023.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Sits amid prolonged slump

    Votto is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

    Votto's absence is presumably mostly due to the Reds concluding their series with the Phillies with a day game after a night game, but the 38-year-old could probably benefit from a mental reset in any case. Over his last five games, Votto has gone 0-for-21 with one walk and five strikeouts, dropping his season-long batting average and on-base percentage to .205 and .319, respectively. Matt Reynolds will spell the slumping six-time All-Star at first base Wednesday.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Lifts 11th homer

    Votto went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Brewers.

    Votto is now 10-for-29 (.345) over his last nine games, hitting safely in eight of them in one of his longest hot stretches of the year. He's collected three of his 11 homers this year in that span. The 38-year-old's surge has lifted his slash line to .224/.341/.406, but all of those would be career-worst marks for a full season. He's added 39 RBI, 30 runs scored, 17 doubles and one triple through 82 contests.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Homers in second straight

    Votto went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in an 8-2 victory over the Orioles on Saturday.

    Votto went deep for the second game in a row to raise his home-run total to 10 on the year. The veteran first baseman has now posted double-digit home runs in every season since 2015. Votto got off to a miserable start in 2022, and his season-long numbers represent a major drop-off from his impressive 36 home-run season in 2021, when he slashed .266/.375/.563.

  • Reds' Joey Votto: Back in lineup Tuesday

    Votto (back) is batting cleanup and playing first base Tuesday in New York.

    Votto will step back into the lineup for the first time since July 4 after battling a back injury. Prior to missing time, the veteran slashed .216/.326/.405 with three RBI in his last 10 games.
