Reds | Devin Mesoraco available to pinch hit

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:00:06 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) said he is not ready to catch but is available to pinch hit Friday, April 17. He has an impingement in his left hip and is trying to avoid a stint on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to avoid Mesoraco in all fantasy formats until he returns and plays a full game. It is somewhat concerning that he is attempting to play through an injury, however, it may also be a sign that his return is imminent. Continue to check back for updates on his return timeline. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has four singles over 13 at-bats this season spelling Mesoraco, and Pena should be viewed as a low-end fantasy option in all formats.

Reds | DL not ruled out for Devin Mesoraco

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:53:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remained in Cincinnati, missing his third straight game Wednesday, April 15, against the Chicago Cubs. Manager Bryan Price said Mesoraco would be re-evaluated Thursday, April 16, and did not rule out placing Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: With Mesoraco sidelined it is Brayan Pena ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) seeing a majority of the starts with Kyle Skipworth as the backup. Pena is hitting .308 and is a solid low-end FantasyScore play until Mesoraco can return.

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:12:54 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) likely will be the starting catcher until Mesoraco is able to return. He has picked up three hits in his last three games and could be a starting option on FantasyScore for owners looking to save some money at the position.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco out a week or less

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 07:42:39 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) could be out a week or less the team hopes. "We have to see how he comes through the treatment," manager Bryan Price said. "I think he was a bit better (Tuesday). Certainly Dr. (Tim Kremchek and (physical therapist) Christy (Sweeney) back in Cincinnati will have a lot more to say about it, but at least the initial report was it wasn't something that was going to necessitate a disabled-list deal."

Fantasy Tip: Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is filling in behind the plate, but he has little luster on FantasyScore. Mesoraco is a daily consideration upon his return.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco unlikely for DL

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 18:36:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) missed another game Tuesday, April 14, and manager Bryan Price said he is dealing with "a bit of soreness." Mesoraco continues to rehab in Cincinnati, and the team recalled C Kyle Skipworth from Double-A Pensacola to back up C Brayan Pena until Mesoraco is ready. However, Price reiterated that a stint on the 15-day disabled list is unlikely.

Fantasy Tip: The catcher might be sidelined until at least Friday for the start of the series against the St. Louis Cardinals. FantasyScore owners will want to forget about Mesoraco ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Until he returns it is the Brayan Pena ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) show behind the dish, and he is a solid low-priced option.

Reds | No Devin Mesoraco Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:11:17 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. C Brayan Pena is starting in his place and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is undergoing tests on his injured hip, and he may need to miss further contests. Stay tuned. The switch hitting Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit .272 with all five of him home runs against right-handed pitchers, so he could be considered a sleeper against Chicago Cubs starter Jake Arrieta tonight.

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 12:32:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not with the team. He stayed in Cincinnati to have a MRI on his hip.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Mesoraco in FantasyScore contests Monday, and until he returns to the lineup. Also, continue to check back for updates on the severity of Mesoraco's injury and a return timeline. Brayan Pena will see the majority of time behind the plate in Mesoraco's absence, but he is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Mesoraco from all your lineups Sunday. This will be Pena's ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) first game of the season, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier for daily contests.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($5,700, 11.4% of your cap) is one of the best options at the position on FantasyScore. He faces left-hander Francisco Liriano, whom he is 5-for-11 against, with two RBIs in his career.
