Good news report from Bryan Price today on the health of first baseman Joey Votto.

“Votto has been monitored by Reds strength and conditioning coach Sean Marohn during the offseason.

‘The last report when Sean was up in Toronto earlier this month was very, very good,’ Price said. ‘The strength was outstanding, the stamina was good and the agility. Right now, we’re looking to hit the ground running when Joey gets to Goodyear and being able to see with our own eyes where he’s at. I’m confident that he’s going to be ready to go.'”
