Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets have traded Marlon Byrd and John Buck to the Pirates.

Both players are fine fits for Pittsburgh, as Byrd provides some much-needed outfield help while Buck will back up Russell Martin now that Michael McKenry (knee) is out for the rest of the season. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports hears that the Mets will receive a minor leaguer and a player to be named later in return.

Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip impingement.

After seven weeks of trying to keep Mesoraco active despite the hip injury, the Reds have finally given in and thrown him on the disabled list. He hadn't made a start behind the plate since April 11 and when he tried to squat last week, he felt renewed discomfort in his hip. Mesoraco is now considering season-ending surgery.
