Player Notes
According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Devin Mesoraco still hasn't tried squatting and is trying to avoid surgery for his left hip impingement.

Advice: Mesoraco hasn't started a game since April 11 due to the hip impingement, yet the Reds have opted against placing him on the disabled list. He will be able to DH during the Reds' upcoming weekend series against the White Sox, so a decision on a potential surgery will presumably be held off until then. Mesoraco would be out for four months if he does ultimately have to go under the knife.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) was retired as a pinch-hitter in the Reds' loss to the Braves on Sunday.

Advice: Mesoraco hasn't started a game since April 11 due to a left hip impingement, but the Reds have refused to place him on the disabled list and are instead using him as a bench bat. He is 0-for-4 with a walk and two strikeouts in that role since April 12. It's a very odd situation, though Mesoraco can at least draw some starts at DH next weekend when the Reds visit the White Sox in Chicago. It's not clear when he might be able to return to catcher.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) may DH when the Reds visit the White Sox next weekend.

Advice: Mesoraco hasn't played the field in almost a month but continues to pinch-hit. With eight games in American League parks this month, Mesoraco will have a chance to see semi-regular at-bats while his hip heals up. Mesoraco said it will be at least another week before he's able to catch again.

Devin Mesoraco remains out of the Reds starting lineup on Saturday.

Advice: Mesoraco once again appeared as a pinch hitter in Friday's contest but is unable to work behind the plate. He hasn't started a game since April 11 due to his hip impingement, but the Reds have opted to play with a short bench and not place him on the disabled list.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) is out of the Reds' lineup again for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Advice: Mesoraco is still on the active roster despite the fact that he hasn't started a game since April 11 due to a lingering hip impingement. Of course, he had a pinch-hit appearance on April 26, so putting him on the DL now might not do them much good. He remains day-to-day.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) is out of the Reds' starting lineup again on Monday.

Advice: Mesoraco drew a walk as a pinch-hitter on Sunday, but he still isn't able to catch due to a lingering left hip impingement. The 26-year-old slugger has logged just three at-bats since April 12, yet the Reds have refused to place him on the disabled list. Brayan Pena is starting behind the plate on Monday night against the Brewers.
