Buried in a spring training game story
Votto, the 2010 NL MVP, reported to training camp healthy after missing 48 games in 2012 following two arthroscopic surgeries on his left knee. He's been given a spot on Team Canada's roster for the upcoming World Baseball Classic, but Votto wants to play a few more games and see how he feels before committing to the event.
Baker likes what he's seen so far from his first baseman.
''Joey looked great, actually,'' he said. ''He was running the bases well. You didn't see any signs of anything. He swung the bat well.''
