From John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer comes word that Reds first baseman Joey Votto made an early exit from Saturday’s game against the Giants after feeling soreness in his left knee. He has been officially diagnosed with left knee inflammation.

Votto, 28, is batting .350/.471/.632 with 14 homers and 47 RBI through 333 plate appearances this year.

He has appeared in each of the Reds’ 77 games this season, but seems likely to be given a day of rest during Sunday’s series-finale in San Francisco.

    that’s ok it will give one those “cold” bats on dusty’s bench a chance to get “lukewarm” without him having to bench the “hot” bat.
