The Cincinnati Reds made several roster moves prior to Sunday's double header against the Colorado Rockies. Not only did Homer Bailey hit the 15-day disabled list as expected, but first baseman Joey Votto was also moved from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL.
The move was made in order to open up a spot for projected starter, Dylan Axelrod, who is starting in place of Bailey. Fortunately, it seems the Reds are optimistic that Votto's progress, while slow, is coming along.
"The process is moving along," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "He did some testing, which was very positive. His strength has improved and he's getting close to baseball activity. That's certainly inevitable as part of the process. I can't really give you a timeline on what to expect. But we did get some really good feedback on the testing he did with his knee as far as the strength perspective."
"But we did get some really positive feedback on the recent testing he did on his knee," Price said. "We can definitely tell there's been significant improvement since he initiated that PRP protocols."
