Votto traveled to Pawtucket, R.I., on Saturday to meet Triple-A Louisville for a rehab assignment that will begin on Sunday. In the first game of his rehab assignment for Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 1-for-3 with a single before being lifted for a pinch-runner in the seventh. There is no one specific test that Votto has to pass while playing in game conditions. Certainly, we'd like to have him back with the club, but we've made an investment to get him healthier, closer to looking like the Joey Votto we know." That's one thing we haven't been able to replicate over the course of his rehab." "He'll go out there in search of that longer outing, that 90-plus pitch outing, and we hope to have him ready and in our rotation after that," Reds manager Bryan Price said on Sunday.
