Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker was hoping first baseman Joey Votto might return to the Cincinnati lineup on Monday, but it was announced late Sunday that Votto will play in another minor-league rehab game on Monday.
Votto has been out since July 15 as a result of surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus in his left knee.
He hit a home run in a rehabilitation game with Triple-A Louisville on Saturday, and he took the day off Sunday.
"We'll wait and see if he thinks he's ready," Baker said Sunday afternoon, according to MLB.com. "We've got a spot for him."
Sunday night it was announced Votto will make another rehabilitation appearance for Louisville against Indianapolis on Monday afternoon in Louisville's final game of the season.
Votto went 1-for-5 in three rehab appearances with Class A Dayton, and 1-for-3 with Louisville.
He's hitting .342 with 14 homers this season for the Reds, who have gone 32-15 without Votto in the lineup.
