Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured left foot.

An X-ray revealed that Devin Mesoraco suffered a small fracture in his fifth metatarsal on his left foot as a result of a hit by pitch Monday.

Mesoraco initially stayed in the game after being hit by a Jose Quintana pitch, but the foot flared up on him and he was removed for a pinch-runner. He's headed back to Cincinnati for an MRI to see how much time he might miss, but a trip to the disabled list is certainly coming regardless.

He believed Adam Duvall was hit by a pitch but instead it was called a foul ball for strike three.

Mesoraco went 0-for-3 with a walk before exiting.

Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left shoulder.

This is the same shoulder which he has previously had surgery on, but reports at this juncture indicate that this is not related to the surgery. Mesoraco was hitting .234/.333/.459 with six homers and 14 RBI prior to going down injured. There is no current timetable for his return. With the catcher ailing on the health front, Tucker Barnhart figures to see the majority of at-bats behind the plate moving forward in the short term.
Jul 5 - 4:05 PM

Devin Mesoraco hit his sixth homer Friday to give the Reds their only run off Alex Wood.

Mesoraco has been better than hoped since coming off the DL at the end of April, hitting .235/.344/.502 in 81 at-bats. He's still not playing regularly and that's probably not going to change, but he's a top-12 fantasy catcher anyway.

Devin Mesoraco belted a three-run home run in four at-bats on Saturday against the Dodgers.

Mesoraco has managed just three hits over his past 30 at-bats (.100), but at least each of the hits have been good for extra bases. His average has tumbled dramatically due to his ice-cold stretch at the plate, going from .317 on May 21 to his current .225.

Devin Mesoraco delivered a walk-off solo homer in Friday’s 3-2 win over the Braves.

Mesoraco didn’t start the game, but he came on to catch in the top of the 10th inning and took Jose Ramirez deep to begin the bottom of the frame. The Reds have been careful about his workload after his injury issues over the past couple of seasons, but he has produced a .797 OPS with three homers through 22 games. He remains a name to watch in fantasy leagues.
Jun 2 - 10:42 PM

Devin Mesoraco went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Rockies on Saturday.

Mesoraco connected for a solo shot off reliever Chad Qualls in the sixth inning. The dinger was the second of the year for the 28-year-old, and his first since May 3. It appears health will always be a concern as it relates to Mesoraco, but he's still one of the best-hitting catchers in the league when on the field, batting .289/.400/.474 in 15 games this season.
