Player Notes
Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip impingement.

Advice: After seven weeks of trying to keep Mesoraco active despite the hip injury, the Reds have finally given in and thrown him on the disabled list. He hadn't made a start behind the plate since April 11 and when he tried to squat last week, he felt renewed discomfort in his hip. Mesoraco is now considering season-ending surgery.

Devin Mesoraco is expected to decide whether to undergo season-ending surgery on his left hip when the Reds return home from their road trip Monday.

Advice: Mesoraco experienced continued pain while attempting to squat on Friday and hasn't even been available to serve as a designated hitter the last two days. Being able to catch again this season looks like a long shot, so he could decide soon to go ahead and have the procedure. "I'm sure we'll have some type of meeting," he said. "I don't know what we're going to do. I don't expect to be catching in the near future. We'll talk when we get back to Cincinnati."

Devin Mesoraco (hip) suffered a setback in his recovery when he experienced continued pain while attempting to squat on Friday.

Advice: With this setback, he's unable to serve as the team's designated hitter over the weekend in Cleveland, but could still be available as a pinch hitter. It still looks as though the Reds will let him fight through the injury and avoid a trip to the disabled list.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) went 2-for-2 with a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

Advice: Serving as the designated hitter because he's still not ready to catch, Mesoraco showed that his timing is coming around at the dish. What that means when the team returns to a National League is still unclear, but the team obviously thinks he'll be alright without a disabled list stint.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) got into a squat position about 15 times and tossed about 15 balls to second base on Tuesday.

Advice: Mesoraco was only throwing at around 20 percent effort, but it's still a nice first step. He'll repeat the step on Wednesday and then could catch a bullpen session over the weekend. "At least I know I can get into squat position, which I hadn't done for 30-something days," Mesoraco said. "It's good. Definitely baby steps. We're not going to go crazy because those muscles haven't been used. It's going to be a slow process." Mesoraco hasn't caught since April 12 due to a left hip impingement.

Devin Mesoraco is at DH for the Reds on Tuesday.

Advice: Mesoraco will finally get another start with the Reds playing a two-game set in an American League park (the Royals' Kauffman stadium). He hasn't caught since April 12 and is still unable to squat due to a left hip impingement. It's a frustrating situation for fantasy owners.
