    Hal Mccoy: Joey Votto will not return when DL stint is up

    http://www.daytondailynews.com/blogs...n_dl_time.html

    Not good news on the Joey Votto front.
    Manager Dusty Baker said before tonight’s game that it isn’t likely Votto will be back when his time on the 15-day DL is up on June 14 (a week from Sunday). Votto was at the ballpark, dressed in civvies, watching batting practice Friday, but is not doing anything as far as baseball is concerned. And there is no timetable as to when Votto might start doing that stuff.
    “When he comes back, he’ll have to go out and do some minor-league rehab,” said Baker. “He ain’t The Natural, although he might be close to being natural. Wish I had more to tell you, but I don’t. All I can say is that he won’t be back when his 15 days on the DL are up.”

    The news on Joey keeps getting worse. I pray somehow we can stay in the thick of things until he makes his comeback. I also have to feel for Joey as a person. I really hope he's ok.

    I knew from day 1 it was more then an inner ear infection. It was never that.

    the reds need help if they have any chance of staying around when and if votto comes back. We'll see how serious they are for contending. Im not sure mortgaging the future is a good idea for contention this year because i doubt we could win it all anyways.

    I don't know about winning it all, but they're not that far off from a playoff team. The pitching is too good to have a lot of losing streaks.

    maybe you are kidding now, but seriously get him healthy and hitting again then trade him in the off season for a young starting pitcher to replace Harang, Owings, or Arroyo.

    I am sick...I will be in attendance for every Reds vs. Nats game (Wife and I are vacationing there next week) and I really wanted to see Joey.

    At this point, I just want to see some runs.

    Without Votto the Reds don't really have one consistent bat. Somehow they are playing more or less .500 baseball. Ramon Hernandez has made some nice defensive plays in the games I've seen.

    If you would of told me before the season started that the team would have to play without Votto and with Bruce struggling the way he is for any extended period of time I would have said that EE will really have to carry the load.So when I consider that EE has been a non-factor this year I'm really not sure how were scorring any runs.If we can get Votto back anytime soon and get some other guys going we might be in business.

    Re: Hal Mccoy: Joey Votto will not return when DL stint is up

    This is what the Reds have posted on their website:
    "Votto was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of what was termed by the club as "stress-related issues." No more details were revealed, at Votto's request.
    "He's dealing with a personal issue," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "He wants us to respect his privacy about that."
    On May 21, after a battery of tests, the inner ear infection was revealed, but it apparently has less to do with Votto's current departure from the team than what was originally speculated.
    "It's partly that. Let's leave it at that," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said.
    "Whatever it is, we need to support him. This is like a member of your family. Right now, he needs their support and love and understanding something they might not even understand."
    "It's basically something that Joey needs some time away to deal with," Jocketty said. "We gave him that time. It's not a big deal, but it's something that was affecting his ability to play at the level he wants to play at."
    Read those quotes and then tell me again this is purely related to his previous illness. Jocketty said it is "partly that," as in, not entirely that, as in, there is something else. A "personal issue," to again quote the team. Dusty began a statement with "whatever it is." Does any of this remotely sound to you like something related to an inner-ear infection? It doesn't to me.

    I know everyone's concerned about Votto -- but the team is obviously keeping this private for a reason, and Joey isn't speaking out about it either.

    I think the best course of action is to respect Joey's wishes and keep the speculation to a mild roar.
