Monday news and notes from SF

The Reds have not gotten any word, as of Monday, about when Joey Votto’s two-game suspension appeal might be completed.

“I don’t believe it’s going to happen any time during the road trip, but that’s about what I know,” Reds manager Bryan Price said on Monday. “I don’t even know for sure if that’s the case. Initially in Cincinnati during the aftermath, there was an inability to have the get-together and meeting of the minds and whatever it is they have to do to pass judgment until we get deeper into the month of September.”

Injured catcher Brayan Pena has been making progress from the strained right hamstring he suffered on Wednesday, but the club is taking it slow in bringing him back as a precaution. Pena, who has been running and hitting without issue, remains day-to-day.

“It’s such a demanding position behind the plate, not just the squatting, but having to burst from that position – to make a throw, block a ball, to backup a throw at first base,” Price said. “Until I know he can do those types of activities, I don’t see him catching. Now, he could get the green light tomorrow.”

On Monday during the third inning, Hamilton had to make some long throws on balls hit into the outfield.
“A couple of balls that were hit into the gap, I threw them in and one on a relay,” Hamilton said. “I ended up hurting myself. I felt it on the first throw and the second one came back-to-back and kind of hurt it again. It got to the point where I had to try and battle through it. I started swinging and it felt like it was getting worse.”

“We’ll have to wait and see what the doctor says,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “Right now like we always say, it’s a day-to-day deal. We’ll have somebody take a look at him and come up with an idea on when he can come back, or if he can come back. I’m hoping he can come back and play for us. That’s yet to be seen.”
