Reds | Devin Mesoraco to miss at least four months

Fri, 06 May 2016 18:13:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (shoulder) is expected to need a minimum of four months to recover from surgery to repair the torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: This procedure will essentially end Mesoraco's season, so he should be dropped in all seasonal leagues. The 27-year-old hit .140 with one RBI in 50 at-bats in 2016 and has played in just 39 games over the past two years. Tucker Barnhart will serve as Cincinnati's No. 1 catcher and he makes a viable option in NL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher fantasy formats.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco will undergo surgery

Fri, 06 May 2016 12:22:16 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (shoulder) will undergo left shoulder surgery to repair his torn labrum Tuesday, May 10.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco should be replaced in all seasonal leagues, and even in keeper/dynasty formats, you'll really want to consider how much benefit there is to stashing the backstop. It likely isn't worth it. Tucker Barnhart will take care of catching duties most nights, and he is a viable deep mixed, two-catcher and NL-only option with a respectable .278 batting average to start the season through 59 plate appearances.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco weighing options

Mon, 02 May 2016 21:46:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (shoulder) is weighing his options, including playing through a torn labrum. "I'm going to definitely have to get surgery at some point," Mesoraco said Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Mesoraco will be able to return anytime soon, but he should be reserved until he can officially return and prove his health in at least a handful of games without any setbacks.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco to DL with torn labrum

Mon, 02 May 2016 15:39:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list with a torn labrum in his left shoulder Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco can be replaced in all seasonal leagues, and while the good news is it isn't his throwing shoulder, the backstop is set to miss another season of action. Tucker Barnhart is a viable add in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL-only leagues given the abundance of at-bats he'll receive, especially since he is 13-for-43 to start the season. Still, he is a low-end backstop in all fantasy formats.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco not in lineup

Mon, 02 May 2016 11:40:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco remains out of the starting lineup Monday, May 2. C Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate and batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco is hitting .140/.218/.160 with one RBI in 50 at-bats and hasn't started since last Wednesday. It's time to start looking for other catching options in mixed leagues. Barnhart, on the other hand, is hitting .302 (13-for-43). However, he has only four career home runs and is nothing more than a low-end second catcher in two-catcher formats.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart remains in lineup Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 08:22:27 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is in the starting lineup for the third consecutive day in place of C Devin Mesoraco Sunday, May 1, versus Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart is batting .308 with three doubles and four RBI through 39 at-bats and should be viewed as a value play in daily fantasy games. On the other hand, Mesoraco has played just twice in the past week and is batting .140 with one RBI through 50 at-bats. He should be avoided in all fantasy formats for now.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco remains out of lineup

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 12:25:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Saturday, April 30. C Tucker Barnhart is starting behind the plate and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco is not believed to be injured but he is off to another poor start offensively this year, batting .140 with one RBI in 50 at-bats. On the other hand, Barnhart is hitting .333 with four RBI and 36 at-bats and is worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy contests.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco sitting vs. Pirates

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:16:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. C Tucker Barnhart is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco is just 7-for-50 to start the season with a single extra-base hit and only one RBI. It isn't out of the question to replace him in shallow leagues given the poor production. There is plenty of upside, though. Mesoraco hit 25 home runs with a .273/.359/.534 slash line in 2014, after all. Barnhart is off to a strong start (11-for-32) and makes for a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Friday.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco, Zack Cosart resting

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:14:09 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco and SS Zack Cozart are out of the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Sunday, April 24. C Tucker Barnhart will start behind the plate and bat seventh, while INF Ivan De Jesus will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart is 8-for-24 this season and is a solid option for daily fantasy owners looking for an inexpensive backstop. De Jesus has just one hit in 18 at-bats and should be avoided in all formats this afternoon.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart has a 3-for-3 game, which accounts for half of his hits and skews his batting average up to .316 on the year. We need to see more before streaming him against Chad Bettis today.
