|Devin Mesoraco produces third career multi-HR game |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/10/14) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco totaled his third career multi-homer game Sunday, powering the Reds to a 7-2 win over the Marlins.
Mesoraco put Cincinnati up 2-1 with a two-run homer off Brad Hand in the first inning. He then crushed a grand slam in the fifth inning with two outs, chasing Hand from the game. It was his fourth career grand slam.
Mesoraco reached 20 home runs for the first time in a season with his two-homer performance. He came into Sunday's game mired in a 7-for-29 slump in August.

|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.
