Mesoraco underwent surgery to repair a labrum in his right hip Monday. Dr. Bryan Kelly performed the surgery and the Reds expect that Mesoraco will begin catching drills sometime in mid-to-late January. The 28-year-old will end the season with a career low .140/.218/.160 line and since hitting .273/.359/.534 with 25 home runs and 80 RBI in 2014, Mesoraco has only played in 39 games over two seasons and failed to hit a home run while recording just three RBI over that stretch. He will now focus on his recovery and prepare for the 2017 season.
Mesoraco (shoulder) underwent surgery Tuesday and manager Bryan Price said that the damage was worse than initially thought, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. He's expected to miss six months. This is disheartening news for the promising young catcher as Tuesday's announcement from Price suggests that Mesoraco will have his season cut short for a second straight year. Mesoraco had surgery Tuesday to repair the torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, and Price told reporters that his timetable to return has been pushed back to a six-month window, which would end his season if he follows on that timeline. Tucker Barnhart and Jordan Pacheco figure to handle most of the catching duties for the remainder of the season with Mesoraco sidelined.
Mesoraco (shoulder) was on Saturday. Mesoraco will undergo shoulder surgery next week to repair a torn labrum, and it's possible he could miss the remainder of the season. With the recovery process expected to span roughly four months, at the minimum, the Reds will shift Mesoraco to the 60-day DL to free up a 40-man roster spot.
Mesoraco (shoulder) will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder and could miss the rest of the season. This does not bode well for Mesoraco, as was told that the recovery process for this surgery takes at least four months, meaning that his season could be over depending on how long his recovery takes. That being said, there's a small chance that he could return in mid- to late-September if he recovers very quickly, but the Reds will probably err on the side of caution so that he can be healthy for 2017 rather than rush him back to action and cause further damage. This is really unfortunate for the 27-year-old and the Reds, but they'll have to keep chugging along using Tucker Barnhart as their primary catcher.
The Reds have placed Mesoraco (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 28. Handed a diagnosis of a torn labrum in his left shoulder, Mesoraco is almost certainly poised to miss more than the 15-day minimum. As he embarks upon his recovery process, Tucker Barnhart will man the backstop most days, while Jordan Pacheco and call-up Ramon Cabrera provide depth options.
