“He’s dealing with a personal issue. He wants us to respect his privacy about that,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said.
No more details were revealed, at Votto’s request. There was no timetable for a return.
“They weren’t informed about what was wrong,” Baker said of the meeting. “I just told them we have to stick together, even more than ever. Whatever it is, we need to support him. This is like a member of your family. Right now, he needs their support and love and understanding something they might not even understand.”
Apparently, this has less to do with the inner ear infection than originally speculated but again — details are at a minimum.
“It’s partly that. Let’s leave it at that,” general manager Walt Jocketty said. “It’s basically something that Joey needs some time away to deal with. We gave him that time. It’s not a big deal but it’s something that was affecting his ability to play at the level he wants to play at.”

Was it inner ear inffection that was causing the dizziness or an anxiety disorder? I understand that its a private matter and there is a particular stigma attached to so called "mental illnesses", but i really would like to know more about what is going on?
From what I understand with his history w/ the reds and team canada in the WBC Votto carries himself like a pro, he doesn't give off that flaky vibe like some players do/did and has no track record of problems in his past. I wish him a healthy return to baseball cause that guy can seriously mash.
