Analysis: The Reds are talking about trading for an experienced first baseman as a backup. Nobody else on the roster has much experience at first. Outfielder Jay Bruce made his first appearance there since high school on Monday night. Votto earlier missed 23 games while on the DL with a strained muscle above his left knee. Tests found he has aggravated the injury.

Analysis: Votto was listed in the lineup that was announced a few hours before the game. Votto hasn't played since going on the disabled list on May 21, retroactive to May 16, with a quadriceps strain in his left knee, the same knee on which he had two surgical procedures in 2012. The Reds have gone 11-12 without the 2010 NL MVP, who is hitting .257 with six home runs and 12 RBIs in 39 games.

Analysis: Votto has been on the disabled list since May 21, trying to get rid of inflammation and to strengthen the muscle. He stayed in Cincinnati to get treatment on the leg while the team was on a seven-day trip. He was cleared to take batting practice with the team on Tuesday before the opener of a series against the San Francisco Giants. Rain washed out batting practice on the field, forcing players to hit indoors. He's also going to take infield practice and run the base

Analysis: Votting is batting .309 but his unimpressive 10 RBIs are largely due to him going 3 for 13 with runners in scoring position. Friday marked his first hit in such a situation in his last nine games.
