Joey Votto poised to return as Reds streak into Toronto

Joey Votto's return to the Cincinnati Reds lineup for a three-game series against the host Toronto Blue Jays that opens Friday night also will be a homecoming.

The Reds first baseman, who is from the Toronto suburb of Etobicoke, missed the past 15 games after a positive COVID-19 diagnosis on May 3.

"I've performed so poorly to start the season, it's not something I'm comfortable with or used to," Votto said Wednesday from Dayton, Ohio, on a Zoom call with reporters. "Coming back from being on the couch or in bed for eight or nine days, I need to make sure that I'm in a good way physically or I risk injury or I risk poor performance."
