Manager David Bell confirmed the injury after the Reds walked off the White Sox to win 1-0 in 10 innings. Bell also confirmed that Votto would most likely miss at least a month of action.
The injury occurred in the bottom of the fourth inning when Votto was hit by the White Sox’s Dallas Keuchel. Votto briefly stayed in the game but was replaced at first base by Kyle Farmer in the sixth inning.
Votto, 37, reached another milestone less than a week ago when he hit his 300th home run. The Toronto native is hitting .229/.302/.429 with five home runs this season, his 15th in the majors.
