Player Notes
Devin Mesoraco (hip) is hoping to be able to catch a bullpen session within the next few days.

Advice: That should mean we can effectively rule him out for a return to the lineup this weekend. Mesoraco has been limited to just one pinch-hitting appearance over the last 12 days while battling a left hip impingement. Brayan Pena is behind the dish again Friday.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) drew a walk and scored a run as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Advice: Mesoraco isn't ready to catch yet, but hitting and running doesn't appear to be an issue. The fact that the Reds are willing to use him in a pinch-hitting role suggests that they're unconcerned about a potential disabled list stint. Expect Mesoraco back in the lineup before long.

Wed, Apr 22 Rotoworld
Devin Mesoraco (hip) can pinch-hit Tuesday.

Advice: Mesoraco hasn't started a game since April 11 due to a left hip impingement and his status for the rest of the week remains a mystery. He left the Reds on Sunday night in St. Louis to tend to a family issue, but the star catcher has rejoined the team Tuesday in Milwaukee. Brayan Pena is again behind the plate.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) is not yet cleared to catch but is available to pinch-hit Friday.

Advice: Mesoraco also revealed that his official diagnosis is a left hip impingement. The catcher remains hopeful of avoiding the disabled list, but it doesn't appear to be a given. Brayan Pena will be the primary catcher for the Reds in the meantime, with Taylor Barnhart serving as the backup.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) is expected to return to the lineup at some point this weekend.

Advice: It's unlikely to be Friday, as the Reds just swapped out Kyle Skipworth for Tucker Barnhart at catcher prior to the game. Mesoraco is apparently feeling better, though, and looks to be back in action at some point versus the Cardinals. He's dealing with inflammation in his left hip.

John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the Reds hope to have Devin Mesoraco (hip) back "in a week or less."

Advice: An MRI on Mesoraco's left hip showed no structural damage, but he remained back in Cincinnati to undergo treatment rather than join the club on the road in Chicago. "He still has some soreness, so he's continued to do some rehab stuff in Cincinnati," manager Bryan Price said. "It's a day-by-day thing and we hope to have him back soon." The earliest Mesoraco could play again appears to be this weekend in St. Louis, and that looks to be far from a given. However, the Reds appear willing to play a man short for a few days so that they don't have to commit to losing the catcher for 15 days. Brayan Pena will be behind the plate for now.
