The Cincinnati Reds have activated Joey Votto from the injured list. He will be joining the team in Toronto as the two teams play a 3-game series this weekend. Those who won’t be participating are Tyler Mahle, Brandon Drury, Joel Kuhnel, and Albert Almora. They were all placed on the restricted list. Athletes no longer have an exemption to enter Canada while being unvaccinated, so make your own assumptions about why those four players are on the restricted list and not on the team. Left-handed pitcher Ross Detwiler will also not be with the team as he was placed on the bereavement list.
