The wait for Joey Votto's return to the Reds' lineup was extended at least one more day.

Votto's rehab assignment in the Minors stretched into Monday, when he was slated to play for Triple-A Louisville in their final game of the season. As for whether that meant the Reds first baseman would be back on Tuesday, manager Dusty Baker couldn't say.

"It's up to him on how he feels," Baker said on Monday morning. "Joey will be here soon. We just can't say when."

Votto, who is trying to return from two left knee surgeries that repaired damaged cartilage, went 1-for-3 with a solo homer for Louisville at Columbus on Saturday and did not play Sunday. He was 1-for-5 in three rehab games for Class A Dayton last week.
