Reds | Devin Mesoraco still sidelined

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 07:34:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 25. C Brayan Pena will be the starting catcher for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been limited to pinch hitting the last few games and is still not ready to play in a game. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has filled in well at catcher and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore since he has five hits in his last four games.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco to catch bullpens

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 16:01:02 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) hasn't even tried to catch yet while dealing with a hip impingement, but he plans to do some bullpen sessions in the next couple of days. He hasn't played since April 12 when he received a cortisone shot.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is particularly close to returning to the starting lineup if he can't catch. You'll have to remain patient in standard leagues while scrounging the waiver wire for a capable replacement, if you haven't already done so. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should only be considered at FantasyScore as a low-end catching flyer against righties.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco available to pinch hit

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:53:26 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) said he's unsure how he initially hurt his hip, and he said it started hurting 10 days ago. His hip doesn't bother him when he swings, but only when he squats behind the plate. Mesoraco continues to receive treatment and is available to pinch hit.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900) is really frustrating his fantasy owners. He pinch hit Tuesday, and it wasn't believed that he'd need to go on the DL. However, if he doesn't return to the starting lineup soon, the Reds may have no choice. Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is strictly a matchup play against right-handed pitchers at FantasyScore.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco remains out Friday

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 09:52:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, April 24. C Brayan Pena continues to start behind the plate, and he's hitting seventh in the batting order against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) came in for a pinch hit in Tuesday's game, so he's unlikely to land on the DL, but it's unknown when he'll return to the starting lineup. Avoid him for now on FantasyScore. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a switch hitter that fares much better against right-handed pitchers. He hit just .184 (14-for-76) against southpaws in 2014. Look to avoid him in daily games tonight.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco still out Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:50:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the lineup Thursday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of your cap) walked as a pinch-hitter last night, so a DL stint is likely out of the question because they can't backdate it to last week. Avoid him on FantasyScore until he returns to the lineup.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco still out

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 12:59:33 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. C Brayan Pena will be the starting catcher for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) was able to pinch hit in the last game, so it looks like he is making progress. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .296 so far this season and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 17:38:03 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900; 9.8% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return to the starting lineup and prove his health. Just be careful and donít ask Bryan Price where Mesoraco is or when heíll be available.

Reds | Brayan Pena starting at catcher again

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:55:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Brayan Pena will make another start at catcher Tuesday, April 21, against the Milwaukee Brewers, while C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains sidelined. Pena is hitting seventh in the order, behind OF Marlon Byrd and ahead of SS Zack Cozart.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a switch-hitter, going up against right-handed SP Mike Fiers of the Brewers. Pena has hit 25 points higher against righties for his career, and he'll be a GPP option, at the minimum cost on FantasyScore.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco rejoining team

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 10:10:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is expected to return to the team Tuesday, April 21, after being away from the team for an undisclosed family issue. He hasn't played since April 12 due to a left hip impingement.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is unlikely to return to action Tuesday, though. Expect Brayan Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) to continue the catching duties with Mesoraco out. Pena, however, is a weak catching option at FantasyScore.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco remains out

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 11:59:30 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, April 20. C Brayan Pena is starting behind the dish and hitting sixth in the batting order against Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta.

Fantasy Tip: It's believed that Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will be able to avoid the disabled list, but it's unclear when he'll return to action. The switch-hitting Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has five hits in his first 27 at-bats this season, and he'll be a weak catching option at FantasyScore while Mesoraco is sidelined.
