Finding comfort level has been key for Devin Mesoraco
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco entered play Wednesday vs. Pittsburgh leading the team in doubles (three) and RBI (nine) despite missing the first week of the season due to an oblique strain. He also entered Wednesday batting .500 (11 for 22) with three home runs.

"He's just kept it going really nicely," Reds manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "I think the fact that he knows he's our No. 1 guy, there's a lot more responsibility there for him. He knows he's going to play. If he goes 0 for 4, he'll be back in there the next day. That certainly lends to some confidence."

Mesoraco seemed to agree with his manager's assessment.

"It's just an overall comfort level that's the biggest thing," Mesoraco said Wednesday. "I'm comfortable with being the everyday guy. I'm comfortable with Bryan as the manager. I'm comfortable with being in the clubhouse and being around the guys. That's been the biggest thing."

Fantasy Analysis | 1397597933
Devin Mesoraco proving his worth
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Devin Mesoraco has been off the DL all of six games and has already hit three home runs. He also has three doubles, going 8 for 17 overall.

Boy, Dusty Baker really blew it on that one, didn't he?

I say that because I feel like we should already be well acquainted with this version of Mesoraco. He was the big catcher prospect two years ago, ranking 16th among all prospects according to Baseball America, but Baker chose to leave him on the bench, preferring Ryan Hanigan's defense.

But Baker is gone now. So is Hanigan, for that matter, which means Mesoraco finally has a chance to apply his potential. And the early returns are breathtaking.

It's early, yes, and if he goes hitless in his next 10 at-bats, this post will seem horribly misguided, but seeing how quickly he's taken to an everyday role and knowing his potential, I don't think it's too far-fetched to think he could be a must-start catcher by season's end.

I've already bumped him up to 15th in my catcher rankings, and the margin between him and the four ahead of him is thin.

Devin Mesoraco gets rest day Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.

Mesoraco has caught every inning of three straight games in a four-day span since returning from an oblique injury, so he'll get a day of rest Saturday, with Brayan Pena catching and batting seventh. Mesoraco has performed well since returning from the disabled list, going 5 for 11 with three doubles, one home run and two RBI.
