C Brayan Pena remains in Reds starting lineup
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Brayan Pena continues to play behind the plate for the Reds as No. 1 catcher Devin Mesoraco deals with a hip impingement that has kept him from starting since April 12. Pena will start for the Reds on Monday against the Brewers and hit eighth.

Most of the Reds have limited experience against Milwaukee starter Jimmy Nelson, but Pena is one of the few with multiple hits against the pitcher, going 2-for-6 against him. Billy Hamilton is the only other Reds starter with more than one hit against Nelson, with a 2-for-5 mark.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco and right fielder Jay Bruce are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

Mesoraco has seen just two plate appearances as a pinch-hitter in the last two weeks as he continues to deal with left hip impingement. Brayan Pena gets the call behind the plate and will bat eighth.

Bruce has started each of the team's first 17 games in right field but will get his first break of the season Sunday. With Bruce on the bench, first baseman Joey Votto is the only player on the team to have started every gamethis season. Brennan Boesch will man right field and bat fifth in the team's matchup against righty Jake Arrieta.

The Reds are home underdogs (+105) Sunday.

Reds C Devin Mesoraco sits out again on Wednesday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco was held out of the starting lineup Tuesday night against Milwaukee, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Mesoraco has been out of the starting lineup since April 12 because of a left hip impingement, but made a pinch-hit appearance on Tuesday against Milwaukee. He told reporters on Tuesday that his playing status moving forward would be up to the team's medical staff.

"Hitting's not like riding a bike, but it's not like you have to re-learn how to swing a bat," Reds manager Bryan Price said to MLB.com. "It's timing more than anything, and it's impossible to simulate what it's like to face Major League pitching when you're not playing. I was impressed by the at-bat for sure. He was on time, and I'm sure he'd love to be in there.

Brayan Pena will bat seventh in his place on Wednesday.
