Reds put Joey Votto back on DL with leg injury

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Reds place first baseman Joey Votto back on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a nagging thigh injury that is expected to limit him for the rest of the season.

Catcher Brayan Pena was activated off the paternity list before a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs. Pena will be a primary fill-in at first base while Votto is gone.

The Reds are talking about trading for an experienced first baseman as a backup. Nobody else on the roster has much experience at first. Outfielder Jay Bruce made his first appearance there since high school on Monday night.

Votto earlier missed 23 games while on the DL with a strained muscle above his left knee. Tests found he has aggravated the injury.
