Training camp is less than a week away for the World Baseball Classic, and Cincinnati Reds slugger Joey Votto still hasn't decided if he'll play for Canada.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Votto, who missed 50 games last season after two knee surgeries, is still weighing his options.

"Not yet," Votto said after being asked if he's made a decision. "I'm still trying to get my legs under me."

The 29-year-old had a .336 batting average with 14 home runs and 56 RBI in 111 games after signing a 10-year contract extension worth US$225 million. His 94 walks also led the National League.

Votto, who was named the NL MVP in 2010, is a career .316 hitter since his major-league debut in 2007. Votto was Canada's best hitter at the WBC in 2009, with five hits in nine at-bats and one homer in two games.

Canada opens training camp March 4 in Goodyear, Ariz., before playing Milwaukee and Cincinnati in a pair of exhibition games March 5-6.
