Left quad strain for Votto
The MRI results on Joey Votto are in. He has a left distal quadriceps strain. Votto will not be placed on the disabled list, as of now. But there will be more discussion of the issue later.
Quotes from manager Bryan Price:
“It means there’s a reason for the soreness and the fatigue in the leg,” Price said. “We’ll collect as an organization after the game today and try to define the best course of either rehab or the best decision for Joey and the club.”
Considering the track record of Votto’s left knee, the MRI results are considered good news.
“I don’t think initially the feeling was that it was going to be chronic or long-term debilitating,” Price said. “But until you check anybody out, you don’t know what you can find. Yeah, it is a collective sigh of relief for sure that it’s not anything serious. It looks like all the structural stuff in the knee is great and intact. That’s the positive thing to this point.”
