Re: Votto expected to be out 3-4 weeks after knee surgery
IMO, this is the most likely scenario: Votto told the team his knee was a little sore, but he wanted to try to play through it. He gave it *some* rest over the ASB (not full rest, but more than usual), played against the Cardinals, and then realized it was getting worse, so at that point, he told the doc. After that, the team acted pretty quickly in getting him an MRI and setting up surgery.
