MLB.com has reported that Joey Votto is ready to return to the Cincinnati Reds. With local and some national media doing some "investigative reporting" we had learned Monday that Votto was in fact on the team chartered flight and staying in the team hotel in Toronto. We have not yet recieved official reports from the Reds just yet, both MLB.com and Reds.com are reporting that Votto "should" return to the Reds lineup Tuesday night against the Blue Jays. Votto has been on the DL since May 30 with undisclosed stress related issues.
It has been confirmed that Joey Votto has been activated from the DL. Reds activated Votto and send Wilkin Castillo to the 15-Day DL with a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Votto is also scheduled to speak with the media at 4:00pm today.
