(3/31/2015) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco missed Tuesday's game with a cramp in his left quadriceps suffered in a game over the weekend, but is hoping to play Wednesday, reports MLB.com.

"I'm optimistically thinking that he'll be ready to play tomorrow," manager Bryan Price said Tuesday morning. "[What I don't want to do with injured players] is to put them in there and find out they can't go, or shouldn't go."

Mesoraco is hitting .214 with two home runs and four RBI in 11 spring training games.

Reds' Devin Mesoraco, Billy Hamilton back in lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco (concussion) and center fielder Billy Hamilton (shoulder) are back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

Mesoraco suffered his concussion last weekend after getting hit in the mask by a foul ball but was able to progress through the week.

"To be honest, I don't think I need a lot of at-bats," said Mesoraco. "My swing is good, and I feel like my swing is pretty close to where it should be. I don't think I need any extra, but I'm more than happy to go out there and play as much as Bryan wants me in there."

Hamilton injured his shoulder nine days ago while running into an outfield wall.

The Reds do not have a date for Mesoraco to return to the lineup.

"It's a day-by-day thing," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "He'll have to graduate to catching in the bullpen and make sure everything is fine in that regard, pass all the testing protocols the trainers put him through and Dr. [Tim] Kremchek. Then we'll get him back in there."

"I would tend to rely on our medical people and what they think more so than coming to my own conclusion," manager Bryan Price said. "I'm certainly not happy. There's definitely a concern. But right now, I don't feel the sky's falling, and I haven't been given any information to suggest that there's a point of concern for long-term residual concerns."

Reds' Price 'realistically' targets Mesoraco to catch 145 games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price indicated catcher Devin Mesoraco could see a lot more time behind the plate in 2015, per the Dayton Daily News. He appeared in 114 games in 2014, starting 109 at catcher.

“I’ve been asked that question a lot about Mesoraco playing first base,” Price said. “How much would he play? Only if (Joey) Votto was injured. Realistically, I see him as a Yadier Moilina-type guy, who is going to catch 145 games a year, more so than I see him catching 110 a year and playing 20 or 30 at first base.

“It stood out more last year because I linked up Johnny Cueto with (Brayan) Pena catching. I anticipate Mesoraco catching a lot more games this year, especially if he stays healthy. We won’t pair Pena with Cueto as much. Devin did a real nice job with Johnny the times he caught him.”
