CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Joey Votto made his return to the Reds line-up Tuesday confident he will produce at a high level.

Votto, who missed 26 days with a strained quad muscle, played two games with the Reds top minor league team before suiting up for the Reds for the first time since May 15th.
 
"I hold myself to a high standard and I wouldn't come back unless I thought I could play to that high standard," said Votto before Tuesday's game.
 
Reds manager Bryan Price said he expects Votto will need periodic games off during the season for soreness and added his first baseman likely won't be at full health until after the season.
 
"I'm not really concerned what percentage people think that I'm at.  I'm going to come back and play well."
