Reds place Votto on DL

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds have placed first baseman Joey Votto on the 15-day disabled list with a left leg injury.

The Reds made the move before Wednesday's game against the Washington Nationals. He had already missed five games with a quadriceps strain in his left knee.

The move is retroactive to May 16.

The Reds had played a man short, expecting Votto would return quickly. Manager Bryan Price said Tuesday he was optimistic Votto would be back for a homestand that starts Friday.

Votto is hitting .257 with six home runs and 12 RBIs.

The Reds also reinstated outfielder Jay Bruce from the 15-day DL. He had arthroscopic surgery May 5 to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.
