First Baseman Joey Votto was placed on the disabled list for the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday afternoon due to a leg injury. Votto was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to May 16th.
“We don’t want to give Joey a week off and then have Joey slightly improved from when we left him,” Price said after Wednesday’s 2-1 win. “We may not be able to get him to 100 percent during the year, but 90 percent would be a lot better than 50 percent.”

With the promotion of pitching coach Bryan Price to Manager, the Reds stayed in house which should help him in the long run.
“What he’ll bring is a fresh approach to our club and some new ideas,” general manager Walt Jocketty said. “He’ll hold guys accountable for their performance.”
