John Fay just reported an interview with JoeyMVP this afternoon. In it, Votto says his recovery is going well and that it won’t be too much longer.
Joey Votto canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t put a specific date on his return, but he sounded pleased with his progress.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know,Ã¢â‚¬Â Votto said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“But IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve come a long way. I feel like I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t put day on it. But I feel like IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve come a long way. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think it will be too much longer.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The Reds are 26-12 since the All-Star first baseman left the lineup on July 16 for the first of his two knee surgeries.
Also, there is no specific word on whether Miguel Cairo’s not-so-handiwork at first base last night is speeding up the MVP’s time table.
