Player Notes
Joey Votto (quad) will make his Cactus League debut on Saturday.

Advice: Votto was held back a bit as he returns from last season's quad/knee issue, but he's feeling good and now is ready to play in games. The 31-year-old first baseman will be in the No. 2 spot in the lineup Saturday versus the Royals. Votto stands a good chance to bounce back in 2015 if he can remain healthy.

Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Thursday that Joey Votto's Cactus League debut is imminent.

Advice: "You won't have to hold your breath, I promise you, you won't have to hold your breath for this," Price said. "Just to reiterate, we just went too far into the rehab and made a commitment to do an extensive rehab to do anything before we feel he's ready. I think he's very close and he's champing at the bit to get in there." Votto missed 100 games last season because of a distal quad strain. The 31-year-old first baseman is an excellent bounceback candidate for 2015.

Reds manager Bryan Price said Tuesday that Joey Votto (quad) won't be out of the lineup for long.

Advice: Votto is not up to game speed, so the Reds are taking it slow with their first baseman. He missed the entirety of the second half of 2014 with a distal strain in his right quadriceps, finishing the season with an uncharacteristic .255/.390/.409 slash line. A return to health could springboard his numbers back into fantasy elite status.

Reds manager Bryan Price said Monday that Joey Votto (quad) is not up to game speed.

Advice: But that was by design heading into the spring, and the 31-year-old first baseman should start seeing his name in Cactus League lineups soon. "I feel really, really good," Votto told reporters Monday. "I'm surprised at how good I feel this early. I feel like I'm trending toward being able to play games here in the not too distant future." He logged only 272 plate appearances in 2014 due to a distal quad strain. The potential is there for a big-time rebound.
