Devin Mesoraco is not in the Reds' lineup Friday for the second straight game.

Sep 9 - 11:07 PM

Devin Mesoraco finished 4-for-4 with a sacrifice fly, a two-run double, and a solo home run, but the Reds lost to the Orioles on Thursday.

It's Mesoraco's second four-hit game of the season, and his fifth in which he has driven in four or more runs. The Reds were behind the eight-ball early, surrendering six runs in the first inning to the O's, but Mesoraco helped them rally back to tie it 7-7 in the seventh.

Devin Mesoraco's slump continued in a loss to the Braves on Thursday with an 0-for-3 performance.

Mesoraco has now logged just one hit (a double) in his last 27 plate appearances dating back to August 13. The catcher has seemingly been on fire all season, but he is proving that he is human. Nevertheless, Mesoraco still maintains an astounding .281/.353/.548 slash line with 20 home runs and 63 RBI in 340 plate appearances this season.
Aug 21 - 10:48 PM

Devin Mesoraco went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI single, but it wasn't enough as the Reds fell to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Mesoraco's three hits accounted for half of the Reds' total on the night, as they found it difficult to get anything going against Joe Kelly and the Red Sox bullpen. The catcher has been unconscionably productive at the plate, as Tuesday's effort sends his slash line up to .300/.371/.586 with 20 home runs and 62 RBI. If Mesoraco hadn't missed time due to injuries, he would likely be in the NL MVP conversation.

Devin Mesoraco launched a two-run homer before adding a grand slam in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Mesoraco's first blast came in the first inning and was a no-doubter. The second ball he hit over the boards didn't go nearly as far, but it accounted for four runs in the fifth inning. The young catcher now has three grand slams during his breakout season and 20 dingers overall to go along with 61 RBI over 79 games.
