DEVIN MESORACO RUMORS

Who will replace Devin Mesoraco on the bench?

Earlier today the Cincinnati Reds finally placed Devin Mesoraco on the disabled list. Taking his place was reliever Manny Parra, who was activated off of the disabled list. This move was a short term move, but it leaves the Reds bench short. It currently consists of Tucker Barnhart, Kristopher Negron, Brennan Boesch and Skip Schumaker.

Reds place Mesoraco on 15-day DL; Cueto examined

CINCINNATI -- The Reds put catcher Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a sore left hip that limited him to pinch hitting and filling in as an interleague DH for the past six weeks. They'd been hoping that Mesoraco -- an All-Star last season -- could get better without going on the DL. The hip bothered him when he went through catching drills over the weekend, prompting...

Surgery a real possibility for Mesoraco

  Devin Mesoraco hasn't caught in a month, but is hopeful that he may be able to catch soon. “I guess I'm optimistic I will be able to catch in a relatively close amount of time,” Mesoraco told Reds.com. “I haven't done any catching drills for 30-some days. At some point I'll probably have to get some practice, get back there and get some work in. But I think at this point...

Revisiting How Devin Mesoraco Got Good

The Reds have officially given four years and at least $28 million to Devin Mesoraco. The contract buys out what would’ve been Mesoraco’s first year of free agency, and this is a contract that would’ve looked a little weird to an observer a year ago. Through 2013, in the majors, Mesoraco owned a 70 wRC+, […]

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...

Mesoraco analyzes each Reds starting pitcher

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- For success, the relationship between catcher and pitcher needs to be on a special level, like husband and wife without the bickering. The baseball cliche is, "We need to be on the same page," but with a catcher and pitcher it is more like being in the same paragraph or being in the same sentence. Every pitch thrown can be a success that leads to victory or a disaster...
