Joey Votto's knee is causing much angst in Redsland.

He was out of the lineup for the second straight day Monday with an inflamed left knee. While Votto and Reds manager Dusty Baker don't seem overly concerned , the disabled list question has come up.

Votto doesn't think the injury will require a stay on the DL.

"That's always up to (trainer Paul Lessard) and the organization," Votto said. "But I would be very surprised if that was the case."
