8/26 vs. STL
Reds lineup vs. Cardinals
*Joey Votto is slated to begin a rehab assignment at Class A Dayton this week. If all goes ok, Dusty Baker said Votto could possibly rejoin the Reds for next weekend’s series at Houston.
Votto was told of the plan on Saturday.
“I’m a little apprehensive because I haven’t played in such a long time,” Votto said of his feelings about getting into games. “Once I get going, I will feel fine.”
Votto is continuing to make progress with his rehab and baseball activity.
“I’ve got a long way to go with my swing,” he said.
I will have a little more in my pre-game notebook later on Reds.com/MLB.com.
