Cincinnati Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco is done for the season due to injured hip

The season for the Cincinnati Reds has been a major disappointment with few things to cheer about, sitting with a record of 31-35 and well out of the playoff picture. Their inability to perform at a high level well likely see them lose guys like Aroldis Chapman and Joey Votto before next season. One player the Reds thought they would have been able to count on though is 2014 All...

Devin Mesoraco’s experiment in left field on hold

It looks like Devin Mesoraco is one step closer to season-ending hip surgery. After only three games, Mesoraco’s attempt to play left field has been put on hold by the Cincinnati Reds.  Mesoraco complained of soreness after last Wednesday’s game with the Triple-A Louisville Bats.  The Reds manager Bryan Price says the team has sent him home for rehab and won’t make any decision...

Reds press pause on Mesoraco's move to left

  A hip impingement has kept Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco from catching and landed him on the disabled list, but the team was hoping to find another use for their All-Star. The Reds tried to put Mesoraco in left field on a rehab assignment in hopes that the lack of squatting – which he'd be subject to if he were catching every day – would help his hip. However, it doesn't appear...

Are the Reds and Devin Mesoraco finally out of options?

You have to hand it to Devin Mesoraco.  He’s willing to try anything to get back on the field and help the Cincinnati Reds despite a left hip impingement that makes playing his regular position of catcher impossible. The latest experiment, straight out of the Evan Gattis playbook, had Mesoraco going to AAA Louisville to get some playing time in left field.  Three games into it...

Cincinnati Reds: Devin Mesoraco is a worthy All-Star

Last winter when the Cincinnati Reds traded away catcher Ryan Hanigan to the Tampa Bay Rays, the question that popped up into many Reds’ fans minds was “can Devin Mesoraco step up to the plate?” In the first half of the 2014 season, Mesoraco proved he has what it takes to be an everyday catcher, and not just an average one. Even with two stints on the disabled list already...

Devin Mesoraco's 'Groundhog Day' is a record one

Considering he hails from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, it's a safe bet Devin Mesoraco has heard a joke or two about the movie "Groundhog Day" over the years. He just so happens to be living in a repetitive cycle right now - one he has no interest in seeing come to an end. The hot-hitting catcher attempts to set a Cincinnati Reds record by homering for a sixth straight game Wednesday...

Hard work brings Mesoraco a long way

CINCINNATI -- There is either a filed-away report or there was a telephone conversation involving a manager or a coach of the Dayton Dragons talking to Cincinnati Reds general manager Walt Jocketty in 2008. It concerned catcher Devin Mesoraco, the team's No. 1 draft pick in 2007 when Wayne Krivsky was general manager. The message: "We made a mistake. This kid can't play. He won't...
