    Votto Accompanies Reds On Flight To Toronto
    First Baseman Not Yet Reinstated From Disabled List

    CINCINNATI -- First baseman Joey Votto flew on the Reds' team charter flight Monday afternoon to Toronto.

    The Reds have not announced Votto's return to the roster, but the Toronto-area native declared himself fit to play major league baseball Sunday after a minor league rehabilitation game.

    The Reds open a three-game interleague series Tuesday night against the Blue Jays.

    After playing two games over the weekend with the Class-A Dayton Dragons, Votto said he would talk about his situation with Reds management.

    At that time he said the Reds would decide if he would rejoin the club or continue a rehab assignment in the minor leagues.

    Votto drove in a run with a single on Sunday, and scored from second base on a double. Saturday night he had a single, a two-run homer, and stole a base.

    But more importantly to Votto, he made it through the full nine innings in both games.

    He went on the disabled list May 30 with what the Reds called stress-related issues.

    This team is so much more interesting to watch when he's playing. Great news. Congrats to Votto on his recovery.

    "I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    It's fantastic news, and my prayers will continue to go out for Votto. And I hate to be a "wet blanket", but I hope that those professionals, whoever they are, that are helping Joey with his personal "situation", a situation that appears to be emotionally-related, meaning it may be something that he may struggle with for the rest of his life and on-going, aren't rushing the guy back for the sake of playing baseball.

    Playing a couple of games at Dayton is far, far removed from the big leagues, as far as pressure and such.

    Again - his over-all health is far, far more important at this stage of the game then anything else.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Votto in Toronto?
    Posted by JohnFay at 6/22/2009 7:14 PM EDT on Cincinnati.com

    I've been waiting for a call back from Walt Jocketty all day. Haven't heard. But there's a pretty good chance Joey Votto is going to play tomorrow in Toronto. Votto is not in the lineup for any of the Reds' minor league teams. And a "Joey Votto" is registered at the team hotel in the Toronto.

    Votto told Paul Daugherty yesterday that he was ready to go. I'll update if Jocketty gets back to me.

    Re: Votto on his way to Toronto

    So who goes down? Rosales, Castillo, or Richar?

    I would think Castillo. With Phillips still hurting, Richar can play 2nd. And with Edwin still out Rosales can back up 3rd. Votto coming back means we're back to 2 catchers...Castillo is redundant.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Good to hear. For the team and for Joey Votto. I hope it works out for both.

    Personally, I don't think it's so he can see the CN Tower. ;-)

    Go Joey! Good to have you back.
