Reds placed Joey Votto (quad) on the 15-day disabled list.
While the Reds haven't released the results of Votto's tests, his placement on the DL was apparently inevitable. He'll be eligible to return July 20, but could be out for a while longer considering his injuries.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Joakim Soria will throw a bullpen session Thursday.
Soria was acquired last season by the Tigers as an insurance policy for the struggling Joe Nathan but he found himself getting injured just six games after being acquired which forced him to miss more than a month. In 13 games with the Tigers last season Soria went 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA after posting a 2.70 ERA with the Rangers prior to the trade. The Tigers expect Nathan to be their closer heading into the season which will mean Soria will once again be in a set up role. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
