|Devin Mesoraco continues to produce at the plate |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/6/14) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco collected three hits -- all singles -- and one RBI in four at-bats Sunday against the Brewers. Mesoraco struck out in his only at-bat that didn't produce a single.
Mesoraco is batting .368 (21 for 57) over his last 16 games. He has five doubles, six home runs, 14 runs and 15 RBI in that span.
|Devin Mesoraco getting day off against Brewers |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/5/14) Reds starting catcher Devin Mesoraco will not be the Reds starting catcher Saturday against Milwaukee. He is "catching" a break as Brayan Pena will do the squatting behind the plate instead.
Mesoraco has been quite productive this season with a .313/.378/.642 stat line and 15 home runs in just 176 at-bats.
|Devin Mesoraco slugs 15th home run Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/2/14) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 8-2 win over the Padres Tuesday.
Mesoraco hadn't homered in five games after going on a power tear a week ago, but racking up hits hasn't been a problem for the catcher. After smacking a ninth-inning blast Tuesday, Mesoraco has hit .314/.380/.645 with 15 home runs and 41 RBI in 172 at-bats.
|Whether he knows it or not, the firing of Dusty Baker this offseason was welcome news for Devin Mesoraco, who went from top prospect to bench fodder in three years under the notoriously veteran-loving manager. New manager Bryan Price is sure to give him a better chance to play every day, if for no other reason than because light-hitting veteran Ryan Hanigan is now in Tampa Bay. Granted, Mesoraco hasn't exactly torn the cover off the ball in the few opportunities he's gotten, but catchers are typically slower to develop, especially when they're not getting regular opportunities. When Mesoraco had a chance to play regularly during a month-long stretch Hanigan missed because of a sore wrist, he hit .286 with four homers and an .820 OPS in 70 at-bats, and he's always performed well in spring training. Like Miguel Montero in 2009, Mesoraco has a chance for a delayed breakout in 2014 if he gets the playing time, making him a worthy late-rounder in leagues that require the use of two catchers.
