Statement from Reds President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Walt Jocketty.
“Joey Votto met with the medical staff this evening and has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his left knee. He is going to have arthroscopic surgery tomorrow and should miss 3-4 weeks. Joey is very comfortable with the decision and is eager to return to the lineup.”
Votto said, “It is in my best interest and in the best interest of the team to do it now so that I can be healthy during the last two months of the pennant race.”
Votto suffered the injury sliding into third base in the fifth inning on June 29 at San Francisco.
Necessary roster moves will be made Tuesday.
