CINCINNATI -- Since having a second minor surgical procedure to remove loose cartilage from his left knee one week ago, Reds first baseman Joey Votto still hasn't advanced to hitting or field work.
"I'll probably advance to baseball stuff at some point," Votto said on Friday. "I'm not sure when, because they haven't specifically told me yet. We're getting a lot of good stuff done in the pool."
Votto said he was not going to join the team for its four-game road trip at Philadelphia that begins on Monday.
There remains no timetable for when Votto might be activated from the disabled list. He has been out of the lineup since July 16. The Reds entered Friday with a 21-9 record since Votto went down with torn meniscus cartilage.
