|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/20/15) The Reds recalled RHP Dylan Axelrod from Triple-A Louisville. Axelrod was 6-6 with a 4.05 ERA with Louisville, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Axelrod will replace Manny Parra, who the Reds placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left elbow. The team currently has no timetable for Parra's return.

Reds' Devin Mesoraco having hip surgery on June 29
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/20/15) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco will have hip surgery in New York on June 29, per the Cincinnati Inquirer.
Mesoraco has been battling the injury all season and got shut down on his most recent minor league rehab assignment.
The surgery appears to be season ending. Mesoraco said he'd be able to do his offseason work on schedule.
"It's disappointing," Mesoraco said, per MLB.com. "I've been trying so long to get it better and get it to the point where I can play, that at this point there's just nothing else that we can do. I feel good about getting it done and moving on to next season."
Triple-A manager says Reds C Devin Mesoraco is clearly still injured
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/15/15) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco played three games with Triple-A Louisville during a rehab assignment but was recently pulled after his injured hip continued to bother him.
Louisville manager Delino DeShields is saying Mesoraco still has a long way to go to recover from the lingering hip issues, per Cincinnati.com.
"He's not going to be the player they want him to be with a bad hip," DeShields told the Courier-Journal Sunday. "I don't care where you put him. … The main thing for him, right now, is to get healthy. It's obvious, to me, that he's injured, and he's not going to get better. It was even hurting him on his swings the other night in Columbus. I just want to see him get healthy, if it's surgery or whatever it is."
Reds' Mesoraco taken off rehab assignment, back to rehabbing hip
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/12/15) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco has been taken off his rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville after suffering a setback with his hip injury Wednesday, manager Bryan Price said Friday, per MLB.com.
Mesoraco will return to Cincinnati for rehab work and will be reassessed after the team's road trip. Mesoraco, who hasn't caught since April 12, is trying to make the transition to the outfield.
"We thought he could transition back to the outfield and it hasn't gone as well as we had hoped from a physical standpoint," Price said.
|2014 summary: Oblique and hamstring injuries sidelined Devin Mesoraco for much of the first quarter of the season, but that only delayed what turned out to be a major breakout. After two seasons in which Mesoraco lacked the playing time and power that his minor league numbers portended, he got the chance to be the Reds' true No. 1 catcher, and he provided more than enough thump to justify his steady inclusion in the lineup. Mesoraco mashed 25 home runs and drove in 80 runs while batting a career-high .273. Mesoraco's power surge coincidence with his ground ball rate falling from 46 to 36 percent.|
Playing time status: With better health, Mesoraco could exceed 120 starts. That would place him among the top catchers in terms of playing time.
2015 outlook: Mesoraco doesn't quite belong in the same class with catching elites Buster Posey and Jonathan Lucroy, but he is arguably the first catcher who should be drafted once those two are off the board. Between his now-proven power and the likely increase in playing time to come, Mesoraco is a bona fide early-rounder now.
