Reds' Votto to the DL

Quote:
The Cincinnati Reds placed first baseman Joey Votto(notes) on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, citing stress-related issues linked to his recent struggles with an inner ear infection.

ďItís something that was affecting his play,Ē Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said.

Votto left Friday nightís game against Milwaukee after missing 12 starts and leaving two other games early during a 17-game stretch this month. He was expected to head back to Cincinnati, and Jocketty said the timeline for his return was unclear.

Votto ranks among the NL leaders with a .357 batting average. He has eight home runs and 33 RBIs.

To replace him on the roster, the Reds recalled utility player Wilkin Castillo(notes) from Triple-A Louisville. Ramon Hernandez(notes) was in the lineup at first base for Cincinnati on Saturday night.

The Reds did get some good news Saturday, when second baseman Brandon Phillips(notes) returned to the lineup, batting cleanup. Phillips hadnít started since last Saturday because of a hairline fracture on the tip of his right thumb.
Not a good thing for the surging Reds, but could be a good thing for us!

I actually heard on the radio today that Votto had some personal issues at home he needed to address, and the inner-ear infection may be a result of those concerns.

He is a very good young player that looks like he will be a future ALL STAR. I hope he gets well soon. Every time I see that inner ear thing I think back too Nick Esasky and what it did to his career. Im pretty sure this isnt the same concern at least I hope its not.

They compared it to the stress issues that Kahlil Greene is dealing with on the Cardinals... stress related where it is making him physically sick.
