Reds first baseman Joey Votto did not accompany the team to Philadelphia for this weekend’s series. Instead, Votto was in Cincinnati on Friday having an MRI on his left knee, according to FoxSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal.
Votto had surgery on that knee in 2012 and played in only 111 games.
Rosenthal said a trip to the disabled list was “likely.”
Votto is batting .257 with six home runs and 12 RBIs in 39 games this season.
