CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Joey Votto’s 2022 season is over, a source confirmed to FOX19 NOW Sports Reporter Jeremy Rauch.

Votto will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff on his left shoulder, per the source.

The surgery is scheduled for Friday.

With the Reds (46-70) sitting in second to last place in the NL Central, it is understandable that he and the team would choose to do the surgery sooner rather than later.

Votto said he was told the recovery time will be six months.

Votto played in 91 games in the 2022 season.

He will finish the year batting .205 with 11 home runs and 41 RBI.
