Joey Votto injury: Reds All-Star reports COVID-19 symptoms, put on IL

Reds All-Star first baseman Joey Votto was placed on the IL on Sunday ahead of the team’s doubleheader with Detroit. 

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Bobby Nightengale Jr., Votto self-reported COVID-19 symptoms to the team’s medical staff on Sunday morning. Votto did not test positive for the coronavirus, per to multiple reports.

The Reds did not disclose a reason for the move. There is no minimum or maximum number of days players that must spend on the COVID-19-related IL. Instead, it depends on the results of multiple coronavirus tests.
