Devin Mesoraco is weighing playing through the labrum tear in his left shoulder.
Mesoraco tried to do the same thing last year with a torn labrum in his hip before eventually undergoing surgery. He could do further damage with the shoulder by playing and the Reds aren't expected to contend, so it might be best for him to just go ahead and have the procedure now. "I’m going to definitely have to get surgery at some point," said Mesoraco. May 2 - 11:20 PM

Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 28, with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Brutal news for Mesoraco, who was hoping to rebound after being limited to 23 games last season due to a torn labrum in his hip. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined or if surgery will be required, but he'll obviously be facing a lengthy absence. Tucker Barnhart will likely handle the bulk of the catching duties for now.
