Votto homers in rehab game with Louisville
HOUSTON -- First baseman Joey Votto went 1-for-3 with a homer and two strikeouts for Triple-A Louisville in Columbus on Saturday night as he continues to rehabilitate the torn medial meniscus in his left knee.

Votto was originally expected to join the Reds in Houston after a few rehab games with Class A Dayton. On Saturday the Reds sent him to Columbus.

Manager Dusty Baker hopes Votto can join the Reds on Monday when they start a nine-game homestand, but that depends on whether Votto feels he's ready to return.

The Reds hope to know more about Votto's status on Sunday.

"That's a big question that none of us can answer yet," Baker said.

Votto entered Saturday 1-for-5 in three rehab appearances, all with Dayton. The Reds are 31-15 with him out of the lineup.
