National League MVP candidate Joey Votto was scratched from Tuesday’s lineup due to a sinus infection, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Chris Heisey replaced him in the lineup, with Jim Edmonds moving to first base.
Votto hit his 35th homer as part of the Reds’ 5-2 win over the Brewers on Monday. He’s currently riding a 10-game hitting streak, and his 1.020 OPS ranks first in the National League.
We’re sure Dave Bush is breathing a sigh of relief at the news. Votto has a homer, two doubles and two walks in nine career at-bats against Milwaukee’s starting pitcher tonight.
