Joey Votto was a late scratch Sunday. He has one hit in his past 11 at-bats and is 6-for-37 over his last 11 games.

Reds first baseman Joey Votto is likely heading back to the disabled list for the same strained left quad injury that landed him there in mid-May, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports tweeted Sunday evening. 

The 30-year-old four-time All-Star was activated from the 15-day DL in early June but there's no timetable for his return this time around. He's been struggling as of late, with Reds manager Bryan Price saying in a Cincinatti.com report from John Fay that Votto is obviously playing "well below 100 percent right now." The Reds gave Votto the day off on Sunday in their 4-2 win at home over the Brewers.

The late scratch was his third day out of the lineup in the past nine games. Votto has one hit in his past 11 at-bats and is 6-for-37 in his past 11 games. 

The Reds are currently fourth in the NL Central.
