Votto, Reds nearing an extension? MLB Trade Rumors has the scoop:

Joey Votto and the Reds are nearing an extension that will keep the first baseman in Cincinnati for a long time, MLBTR’s Tim Dierkes and Ben Nicholson-Smith have learned. Dan Lozano of Icon Sports Group represents Votto. Terms of the deal are not known, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the total contract value surpasses $200MM.

John Fay reports a non-confirming confirmation from Votto:

Votto confirmed a report by mlbtraderumors.com “I can’t comment till it’s done,” he said. “You’ll have to ask Walt (Jocketty). It’s a gray area. I’ll be much more forthcoming later.”
