Reds | Devin Mesoraco 7-10 days away

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 08:34:50 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is seven to 10 days away from returning, according to general manager Walt Jocketty. "The hip is getting better," Jocketty said. "We hope to have him catching in the next two weeks."

Fantasy Tip: Mesy owners will need to be patient for a couple more weeks. Tucker Barnhart and Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) are filling in but warrant no fantasy consideration.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco still out

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 07:15:50 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Mesy ($4,900, 9.8% of your cap) hasn't had multiple at-bats for nearly three weeks now, which is frustrating for traditional leaguers. He last appeared April 24, which means a DL stint could only be backdated to that day. Avoid him on FantasyScore. Tucker Barnhart is in the lineup today but doesn't warrant consideration.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco still out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 11:11:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. C Brayan Pena is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco doesn't appear to be close to returning to action anytime soon, aside from maybe a pinch-hitting role. There's still a chance he lands on the DL, too. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a much better hitter against right-handers (.272 average, all five homers in 2014), making him a sneaky sleeper option against Lohse at FantasyScore tonight.

Reds | No progress for Devin Mesoraco

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:57:16 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) said he hasn't made much progress in his slow recovery from a hip impingement. "Nothing new," Mesoraco said. "It's getting a little better progressively, but not day-to-day." He hasn't caught in two weeks, and the Reds continue to avoid putting him on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) still doesn't appear close to playing, so hopefully you've already found a catching replacement for him in standard leagues. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) remains a low-priced catching option at FantasyScore. Only consider using him to save money when he's facing right-handed pitching.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco continues to sit

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:37:23 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, April 27. C Brayan Pena is starting at catcher and hitting eighth in the batting order against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a matchup play at FantasyScore against right-handed pitchers, although he should be considered a weaker catching option today while facing the improving Nelson.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco still out of lineup

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 06:46:03 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago Cubs Sunday, April 26. C Brayan Pena will be the starting catcher and bat eighth for the Reds Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) hasn't started in 15 days, but he has been able to make a few pinch-hit appearances. Continue to avoid him in all formats until he returns and proves his health. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Sunday.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco still sidelined

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 07:34:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 25. C Brayan Pena will be the starting catcher for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been limited to pinch hitting the last few games and is still not ready to play in a game. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has filled in well at catcher and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore since he has five hits in his last four games.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco to catch bullpens

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 16:01:02 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) hasn't even tried to catch yet while dealing with a hip impingement, but he plans to do some bullpen sessions in the next couple of days. He hasn't played since April 12 when he received a cortisone shot.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is particularly close to returning to the starting lineup if he can't catch. You'll have to remain patient in standard leagues while scrounging the waiver wire for a capable replacement, if you haven't already done so. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should only be considered at FantasyScore as a low-end catching flyer against righties.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco available to pinch hit

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:53:26 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) said he's unsure how he initially hurt his hip, and he said it started hurting 10 days ago. His hip doesn't bother him when he swings, but only when he squats behind the plate. Mesoraco continues to receive treatment and is available to pinch hit.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900) is really frustrating his fantasy owners. He pinch hit Tuesday, and it wasn't believed that he'd need to go on the DL. However, if he doesn't return to the starting lineup soon, the Reds may have no choice. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is strictly a matchup play against right-handed pitchers at FantasyScore.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco remains out Friday

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 09:52:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, April 24. C Brayan Pena continues to start behind the plate, and he's hitting seventh in the batting order against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) came in for a pinch hit in Tuesday's game, so he's unlikely to land on the DL, but it's unknown when he'll return to the starting lineup. Avoid him for now on FantasyScore. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a switch hitter that fares much better against right-handed pitchers. He hit just .184 (14-for-76) against southpaws in 2014. Look to avoid him in daily games tonight.
