Reds manager Dusty Baker said Joey Votto (knee) is unlikely to be activated from the disabled list during the team’s road trip.
That means we won’t see him until August 14, at the earliest. Votto went through another strenuous workout Tuesday and said he’s “running right at 100 percent,” but Baker wants him to show he can slide without any issues before being activated. “I?m still thinking the same,” Baker said. “Just because you?ve hit and you?re moving better . . . He’s training hard. He’s not too far. I?m just not thinking on this road trip. If you?ve had a knee injury the one key obstacle you have to overcome is sliding.”
