Reds | Joey Votto playing in WBC

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto (knee) will play for Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic. Votto said he is ready to go. "I was very clear to everyone that I needed the games to make sure my knee was healthy and heading in the right direction," said Votto. "I feel confident in it and confident in my commitment. I feel I can comfortably play. I've never been hurt before, and I wanted a little more of a grace period before the tournament to make sure I'm ready for my primary commitment to the Cincinnati Reds." Votto and Minnesota Twins 1B Justin Morneau are expected to split first base and designated hitter duties.
