Reds star Votto returns after COVID-19, unsure when to play

The Cincinnati Reds’ first striker bas oi Votton returned to camp on Sunday after sitting with COVID-19, but when he can play again is still uncertain.

Wotton, 37, left the camp on March 10 after a positive test and has since been isolated. After being cleared by Major League Baseball, he returned to the Reds’ Spring Sports Complex in Goodyear, Arizona, but will remain on the injury list until he is fit again.

“I feel good,” said all the stars six times. “I am happy to be back, I am looking forward to wearing the uniform and joining the team. I miss playing ball, I miss being in a team. ”

Votto, who declined to comment on his experience with the virus, could not say how long it would take him to be ready for the game, whether he would be on the roster when the Reds open the season on April 1 against St. Louis. Cardinals.

Before the positive test, he played in four spring training games, 4 for 9. Last season, he scored 226 points in 54 games, 11 home runs և 22 RBI.

“I look forward to feeling sharp with a bat, of course I feel dangerous, as I mentioned before, to make sure I’m healthy, strong and able to play as often as possible,” he said. “That’s the goal, I felt I had a tendency in that direction, so I have to get there and beyond.”

Inc incinati relies on Votto to continue the revival of success on the plate he showed at the end of last season.

“He had a really good camp before wasting time,” said CEO Nick Kral. “So we’re excited to be back with him, it just adds another offensive threat to our squad.”
