News: Reds manager Bryan Price believes first baseman Joey Votto's timetable will come down to weeks, not months, reports Saturday.

"It's so far out, and when I say 'far out,' it's more weeks; I'm not talking about months and months and months," Price said. "But with both Brandon [Phillips] and Joey, we're talking more about weeks than days. So I think it would be reckless of me to suggest there's a due date on when either one of them would be back."

News: Braves catcher Evan Gattis felt good enough after taking some swings Friday that he participated in batting practice before Class A Rome's game Friday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

"He’ll do the same (workout) today, and then just keep ramping him up that way," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Saturday morning. "(Rome) doesn’t play Monday; they play Tuesday. But we haven’t talked about any of that (rehab assignment) stuff yet. Maybe he comes in today and it’s gotten a little sore and (he says) I don’t want to do all that stuff. But I think it was encouraging what he was able to do (Friday)."

Gattis was placed on the disabled list in late June with a bulging disk in his back. If he continues to progress, he could be ready to join the Braves soon after the All-Star break.
