Votto 'very, very close' to returning, says Baker

CINCINNATI -- Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who has been out since July 16 because of two left knee surgeries to repair damaged cartilage, was back on the field for batting practice on Saturday.

For Votto, who ran the full gamut of baseball activity on Friday, it might not be much longer before he is activated from the disabled list.

"He came out good so far," Baker said of Votto's Friday workout. "He's getting very, very close."
