Joey Votto leaves game with blurred vision

Leave a comment

When he’s been in, he’s been productive this year. When he’s been out, it’s been rather terrifying:

Reds first baseman Joey Votto left in the first inning of
Wednesday’s game against the Giants after he experienced blurry vision.


Votto was replaced by Kevin Barker after the top of the first inning.
Reds manager Dusty Baker said Votto is expected to be re-evaluated
Thursday morning.


“He came up on that foul ball in the first inning and said he couldn’t
see,” Baker said. “When a player tells you that, an alarm goes off.”

Depression, dizziness due to an inner-ear infection, and now blurred vision. The dude just doesn’t get a sore hamstring or flu-like symptoms, does he?

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in fourth place.
