Reds' Price: Last report on Joey Votto was 'very, very good'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) Reds manager Bryan Price delivered another positive update Thursday on the status of first baseman Joey Votto, who missed 100 games last season with a distal strain of his left quadriceps.
Votto has been monitored by Reds strength and conditioning coach Sean Marohn during the offseason.
“The last report when Sean was up in Toronto earlier this month was very, very good,” Price said. “The strength was outstanding, the stamina was good and the agility. Right now, we’re looking to hit the ground running when Joey gets to Goodyear and being able to see with our own eyes where he’s at. I’m confident that he’s going to be ready to go.”
Votto, who is a career .310 hitter, batted just .255 with six home runs, 16 doubles and 23 RBI in 62 games in 2014.

|(11/14/14) Reds first baseman Joey Votto is "doing great" this offseason, according to MLB.com. Votto struggled with a distal strain of his quad near his left knee. General manager Walt Jocketty said the team is "getting good reports" on Votto's progress. Votto hit .255/.390/.409 over 220 at-bats last season.
Joey Votto pretty much done for the year

|(9/26/14) Reds first baseman Joey Votto is likely done for the rest of the year, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
General manager Walt Jocketty said "it doesn't make any sense at this point" to bring Votto back. He's been sidelined since July 5 due to a quad injury. Votto hit .255/.390/.409 over 220 at-bats.
Joey Votto participates in pregame activities

|(9/24/14) Reds first baseman Joey Votto returned to pregame activities Tuesday, but Bryan Price stressed that there is no change to his status. The team would prefer to bring him back into action before the end of the season, but have yet to make an announcement with just five games remaining.
"He was doing everything - hitting the cage, taking ground balls, running bases, by the last day there in St. Louis, but we'll probably know more on that in the nest day or two," Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer, which recently reported that it's unlikely he'll play again until next year. "There's not a whole of time left."

Joey Votto not expected to return this season
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(9/21/14) Reds first baseman Joey Votto (quad) has taken batting practice for four straight days without any problems, but his return before season's end is considered doubtful, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer. He's been on the disabled list since July 8.
"He's not pain-free," manager Bryan Price said. "He's not 100 percent, and he won't be at any time during the rest of the season. So the question is, Do we want to play him at less than 100 percent? He still hasn't seen any live pitching."
The Reds are out of the race and would like Votto to enter 2015 spring training completely healthy.
|2014 summary: Even before Joey Votto's season was derailed by two lengthy stays on the disabled list, he was on track to miss his sixth straight .300-plus season -- and by a lot. But alas, Votto did wind up spending the bulk of the Reds season on the DL, appearing in only 62 games due to a quad injury. When he made his first trip to the DL in mid-May, Votto was on pace to slightly exceed 2013's power output of 24 home runs and 30 doubles, but he was batting just .257. When he tried to come back in June, his power was almost completely absent, and when he'd played his last game in early July, Votto was batting .255 with six home runs and 16 doubles.|
Playing time status: Though Votto's season was decimated by his injury, he had played more than 160 games in two of the previous three seasons. He's something of a playing time risk but could easily be in the lineup virtually every day.
2015 outlook: Votto has now gone three season without being close to a 30-homer threat, but last season aside, he has been a lock for a .300-plus average and a .400-plus on-base percentage. It's unlikely that he will bat .083 on ground balls again as he did last year. Even with merely decent power, Votto could re-emerge as a top five first baseman. However, concerns about a healthy return could leave Votto undrafted through the first three rounds.
