Reds | Devin Mesoraco out for season

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 13:49:23 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) will have season-ending hip surgery June 29. He said he'll be able to do his normal offseason work on time.

Fantasy Tip: Brayan Pena ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will continue to see the majority of the work behind the plate, but he has a very low ceiling on FantasyScore.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco leaning towards surgery

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 23:27:30 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is close to opting for season-ending surgery on his hip. "I wanted to continue to get to the point where this is my only option, this is the only thing I can do. I'm definitely pretty close to that now," Mesoraco said. "We've done eight to 10 different things to try to make it feel better, but every time we try something, it continues to get (aggravated) in there. I think I wanted to get to the point where I was 100 percent comfortable. That's why we continued to try, continued to do stuff. We haven't messed anything up from the timetable-wise for next season. It was worth it in my mind to get that 100 percent, that hey, we tried everything."

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco was one of the top-rated catchers entering the season and laid a giant egg for traditional leaguers. If you can hold him on your DL, do so until he's officially done.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco's rehab assingment on hold

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 12:08:03 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) returned to Cincinnati to do rehab work, after he left a game with Class AAA Louisville Wednesday, June 10. Manager Bryan Price said Mesoraco is still sore, and he'll be re-assessed when the Reds return from their road trip Wednesday, June 17. "We thought we could transition to outfield," Price said. "But it hasn't gone as well as we had hoped."

Fantasy Tip: At this point, seasonal owners should be thrilled with any offensive production from Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) this, as it appears he is likely headed for surgery. It isn't out of the question to move on if you can utilize his roster spot more effectively. He already couldn't catch, and now he is struggling to play the outfield.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco begins rehab stint

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 05:42:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) went hitless in his first game of a rehab assignment at Class AAA Louisville Monday, June 8.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) would salvage at least some of the value that made him one of the top catchers taken in traditional drafts with a successful return. He'll be a daily option on FantasyScore at that price.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco to play OF in rehab games

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 16:24:48 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) will be working in the outfield with first base coach Billy Hatcher during the team's homestand and will play in left field during rehab games with Class AAA Louisville after the team goes on the road. Mesoraco could be an option in left field for the Reds if he does not have any problems during the rehab assignment. Mesoraco has been told he can't do any more damage to his hip if he plays in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has not seen regular playing time since the start of the season but could help out if he is able to play in left field. Owners on FantasyScore should monitor the situation since he could be an option if he is able to play.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco will try the outfield

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 13:01:40 -0700

Cincinnati Red Sox C Devin Mesoraco (hip) will receive a look in the outfield as a means to him playing this season, according to manager Bryan Price. He can have surgery after the season, if needed, and continue playing this year. Price also noted the organization still anticipates Mesoraco catching in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is worth stashing in the majority of seasonal leagues, because he owns a high-end bat among the catcher player pool. However, there is no telling just what he'll return at this point, and any production should really just be considered a bonus. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will continue to receive the majority of starts behind the dish, and at his price, he is a huge bargain for FantasyScore players.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco to be bench player?

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:47:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is likely to be a bench player when he returns from the disabled list while dealing with a hip impingement, according to manager Bryan Price. It's unknown is Mesoraco will need surgery to fix his injury or if he'll be able to catch again.

Fantasy Tip: The bottom line is that 2015 will be a lost season for Mesoraco, and his owners who spent a high draft pick on him are really paying the price. At this point we hope you've moved on in shallow mixed formats. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who is hitting .308 (32-for-104), will continue to start behind the dish. It's hard to argue with his price as a value play at FantasyScore when he faces certain right-handed pitchers.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco placed on DL

Mon, 25 May 2015 09:37:47 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 25, because of a hip injury. The team also activated RP Manny Parra (neck, elbow) from the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been limited to pinch hit and designated hitter duties over the last several weeks because of the injury. It is not known when he will be able to catch again. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should continue to be the starting catcher for the Reds and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco suffers setback

Sat, 23 May 2015 12:30:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) tested his hip Friday, May 22, by doing 15 squats, giving signs and trying to get into a catching stance. However, things did not work out as well as planned. "It was very difficult," he said. "(Catching is) probably not something that's going to happen any time soon. It obviously caused some problems afterward. It doesn't make sense to do a whole lot more right now because it doesn't feel good."

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) could wind up undergoing season-ending surgery as a result of this latest setback, although no final decision will be made until the Reds return home from their road trip. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him because he hasn't even been able to serve as a designated hitter in the last two games.

Tue, 19 May 2015 18:48:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) squatted around 15 times behind the plate before the game Tuesday, May 19, and made around also made some light throws to second base. Mesoraco has not been the starting catcher since April 12 and has considered surgery if the injury does not improve with treatment and therapy.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has been limited to being a pinch hitter and a designated hitter for the last month and does not appear to be close to playing regularly. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid using Mesoraco until he sees more playing time.
