Votto officially activated

Greetings from Toronto…

It’s official now — Joey Votto was activated from the disabled list on Tuesday. To make room for Votto, C/IF Wilkin Castillo went on the 15-day DL with a torn labrum. Castillo suffered the season-ending injury after he made a head-first slide on Saturday vs. the White Sox.

Check back here later for more and on Reds.com. Votto is meeting with the media in the Reds dugout at 4 p.m. ET today. It should be interesting to hear how much, or how little, he has to say about what’s been going on.

Reds lineup:

Taveras 8
Hairston 6
Votto 3
Phillips 4
Gomes DH
Hernandez 2
Bruce 9
Rosales 5
Dickerson 7
Owings 1

Great to hear. I can’t wait to see what (whatever it is, if anything) he has to say.
Also, it’s good to see Dickerson AND Taveras in lineup.

Thank GOD! We have been a mess without Joey. I just hope people don’t expect too much from him. Glad to hear he is feeling well.

I remember the slide Castillo made on Saturday. He looked like he was in some pain, but you know what? He didn’t come out after that! I don’t remember if it was a double switch, but he stayed at 2nd until that half of the inning was over. It was also on a hustle play – most would have taken just a single. Sorry to hear it is a season-ender.

Go Reds!
