Joey Votto leaves game with blurred vision

When he’s been in, he’s been productive this year. When he’s been out, it’s been rather terrifying:

Reds first baseman Joey Votto left in the first inning of Wednesday’s game against the Giants after he experienced blurry vision.

Votto was replaced by Kevin Barker after the top of the first inning. Reds manager Dusty Baker said Votto is expected to be re-evaluated Thursday morning.

“He came up on that foul ball in the first inning and said he couldn’t see,” Baker said. “When a player tells you that, an alarm goes off.”

Depression, dizziness due to an inner-ear infection, and now blurred vision. The dude just doesn’t get a sore hamstring or flu-like symptoms, does he?
