    Votto has torn meniscus, to miss 3-4 weeks

    There is a report going around that Votto is having "minor" knee surgery today..No surgery is minor...

    ETA: On the TV broadcast, Brenamen said Votto to miss 3-4 weeks due to a torn meniscus.

    It seems to be a twitter rumor started by Andy Furman

    Not surprising, since Furball is garbage. I never did like that guy. He's almost as bad as Alan Cutler.

    If this is true, that means no Votto for at least two weeks.

    Having said that ... Joey is definitely not right, and hasn't been for almost a month now. If the organization thinks he needs "minor surgery" during the season, then obviously it's a pretty big deal. As the OP said, no knee surgery is really "minor".

    this will be a huge test for us. 2 weeks is not for ever but it could hurt. we need people to step up.

    The Reds should be able to play winning baseball for the rest of July, even without Joey. Hopefully it coincides with the Pirates cooling off for awhile. They're due.

    If true at least the schedule works out with the D'Backs, Brewers, Astros and Rockies over the 2-week time frame. Get it done and get him back right.

    If it's truly a meniscus thing, then surgery is the best bet. I had a full tear in mine when I was about 20. Hobbling but still walked on it for a month. A week after the surgery I was back to jogging, a week after that I felt perfectly fine.

    On top of that, JV is a world class athlete, which I am not, so hopefully his recovery is even better than mine was.
