Baker forgot that Votto is a starter...If you are so concerned to keep Javier in the lineup put him at 3rd...this isn't hard Dusty

From the Dayton Daily News:


Votto back, but not in lineup

By Hal McCoy

CINCINNATI Joey Votto was in uniform Saturday, Aug. 16, returning from bereavement leave, but in no mood to play baseball, to smile or to chat about his ordeal.

Reds manager Dusty Baker understands fully. He had hoped to keep Votto on bereavement for 10 days, "But we had to activate him because the rules say only seven days for bereavement, and that time is up."

Baker did not put Votto in the lineup Saturday night, nor does he plan to start him today, and said, "I was hoping to let him workout Saturday and today and with an off day Monday, he would be ready Tuesday. But the rules say he gets only a week, so he had to be on the roster."

To make room for Votto, the Reds had to return infielder Adam Rosales back to Class AAA Louisville, but not before he got his first major-league hit.

Asked if Votto might pinch hit, Baker said, "I don't know if he'll be emotionally and physically ready. He hasn't hit. But, we'll see."

Javier Valentin, playing most of the time during Votto's absence, started Saturday and will start this afternoon.
