Reds' Devin Mesoraco: Will split catching duties
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mesoraco will split primary catching duties with Tucker Barnhart, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

The move is likely precautionary, as manager Bryan Price plans on not rushing Mesoraco into a heavy workload. "I don't think I would anticipate him playing more than 50-60 percent on the front end of the season," Price said. The 28-year-old catcher has played a total of 39 games over the last two seasons while dealing with a slew of injuries. Unless circumstances change, don't presume Mesoraco as an everyday player right away.

Reds' Devin Mesoraco: Expects no limitations in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mesoraco is expected to begin spring training without any limitations, Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports.

This is great news for Mesoraco and Cincinnati fans, as the catcher has played a combined 39 games over the past two years. In his last full season, which was 2014, the 28-year-old posted his best numbers to date, slashing .273/.359/.534 with 25 homers in 440 plate appearances while earning his only All-Star nomination.

Reds' Devin Mesoraco: Rehab progress report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mesoraco (hip, shoulder) will begin catching drills in mid-to-late January.

The Reds fully expect Mesoraco to spend the season behind the plate, rather than moving him to a corner outfield spot. However, it wouldn't be a surprise if he carried less of a workload than was expected prior to his injuries, given both his injury history and the development of Tucker Barnhart. This is all offseason speculation of course - let's see how he does with actual catching activity before locking in any estimate of playing time.

Reds' Devin Mesoraco: Activated from disabled list Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mesoraco (hip, shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Thursday.

Mesoraco's 2016 season was one to forget, as he went 7-for-50 (.140) over 16 games before missing the remainder of the year with injuries. However, he'll have another chance to play at catcher this coming season and try to display the promise he did in 2014, when he hit .273/.359/.534.

Reds' Devin Mesoraco: Expected to catch in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Reds plan to have Mesoraco (hip, shoulder) back behind the plate next season.

Following a breakout campaign in 2014, Mesoraco has combined to play in just 39 games over the past two seasons as he's required significant surgery on both his hip and left shoulder. He is expected to be ready to resume catching duties in mid-to-late January and Mesoraco is still just 28, but there are doubts about his ability to hold up to the rigors of catching duties. Tucker Barnhart took over for Mesoraco in 2016 and filled in capably behind the dish, but did little of note with the bat.
