"We're going to go day to day," manager Bryan Price said. "It just wasn't good [today]. We'll see where he's at tomorrow and make that decision in the morning."
Left fielder Adam Duvall, who had been scheduled to get a day off, replaced Votto at first base and made an immediate impact, getting the Reds on the board with a two-run double in the first inning. He finished with two doubles and a walk in six plate appearances.
Votto is batting .255/.380/.458 with 14 home runs and 40 RBIs in 79 games this season. He's been one of Cincinnati's hotter hitters of late, going 6-for-11 in his last three games and batting .330/.467/.557 with five homers, seven doubles and 10 RBIs over his last 27 games since June 1.
