Votto may start baseball activity within two weeks

CINCINNATI -- Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who has been on the disabled list since July 8 with a left distal quadriceps strain, has yet to integrate baseball activity into his rehabilitation.

Votto, who has kept a relatively low profile since being out of action, has been doing strengthening work on his leg. He has not taken road trips with the club, and he again won't accompany the traveling party for the upcoming seven-game trip to Colorado and St. Louis.


"I don't like to throw dates out there, but it's reasonable to think that some time in the next week and a half to two weeks that baseball activity would start back up again," Reds manager Bryan Price said.
