The Reds announced on Wednesday all-star first baseman Joey Votto is headed for the 15-day disabled list. It's a mixed bag for Reds fans with a simultaneous announcement that outfielder Jay Bruce, who had arthroscopic left knee surgery on May 5, has been activated off the 15-day DL.
Votto did not make the road-trip to Philadelphia initially when an MRI showed a distal quad strain in his left knee Friday. Manager Bryan Price had hoped to reinstate Votto in Washington, but after missing five games, the team decided to place Votto on the DL.
Votto is batting .257 this year. In his last 16 games, Votto was batting just .182 with two homeruns and two RBI.
Jay Bruce is batting .216 this season with three homeruns and 14 RBI. Bruce is eligible to play immediately, with no minor league rehab stint and just 16 days after undergoing knee surgery.
