Reds | Devin Mesoraco still out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 11:11:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. C Brayan Pena is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco doesn't appear to be close to returning to action anytime soon, aside from maybe a pinch-hitting role. There's still a chance he lands on the DL, too. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a much better hitter against right-handers (.272 average, all five homers in 2014), making him a sneaky sleeper option against Lohse at FantasyScore tonight.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco continues to sit

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:37:23 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, April 27. C Brayan Pena is starting at catcher and hitting eighth in the batting order against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a matchup play at FantasyScore against right-handed pitchers, although he should be considered a weaker catching option today while facing the improving Nelson.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco still out of lineup

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 06:46:03 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago Cubs Sunday, April 26. C Brayan Pena will be the starting catcher and bat eighth for the Reds Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) hasn't started in 15 days, but he has been able to make a few pinch-hit appearances. Continue to avoid him in all formats until he returns and proves his health. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Sunday.

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 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

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.

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 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.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco remains out

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 08:07:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 18. C Brayan Pena will be the starting catcher for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is still not ready to play on a regular basis, so owners should avoid him for the time being. Pena ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only one hit in his last three starts and may not be the best option on FantasyScore.
