Player Notes
Reds manager Bryan Price said Wednesday that he wants Devin Mesoraco to catch 145 games in 2015.

Advice: Mesoraco made only 104 starts at catcher in 2014 yet still managed to slug 25 home runs. He'll have a much bigger workload this season, assuming good health. "Realistically, I see him as a Yadier Molina type guy who is going to catch 145 games a year," Price told Hal McCoy of the Dayton Daily News.

Reds signed C Devin Mesoraco to a four-year, $28 million contract extension.

Advice: Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors was first with the report. This deal buys out all three of Mesoraco's arbitration years along with his first year of free agency. He can test the market at age 30. Mesoraco posted an excellent .273/.359/.534 batting line with 25 home runs in 114 games last season for the Reds and is capable of even better in the years ahead. He should remain a fantasy stud for as long as he's in power-friendly Cincinnati.

According to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Reds have reached an extension with Devin Mesoraco.

Advice: Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca says it's a four-year deal and Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors puts the total guarnateed value at $28 million. Mesoraco was entering his first season of arbitration eligibility in 2015, so he'll have all of his arbitration years covered by this extension along with one year of free agency. Mesoraco, 26, posted the highest OPS (.893) of any major league catcher in 2014 while slugging 25 home runs in 114 games. He's obviously a hugely valuable real-life and fantasy baseball commodity.

Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors reports that the Reds are nearing a contract extension with Devin Mesoraco.

Advice: No word yet on the structure of the deal. Mesoraco is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and requested a salary of $3.6 million from the Reds after batting .273/.359/.534 with 25 home runs in 114 games last season. The 26-year-old catcher should again be a fantasy stud in 2015, and it sounds like he's going to be in power-friendly Cincinnati at least through the remainder of his arbitration eligibility.
