5:19 pm Jul. 19, 2017

CINCINNATI — Devin Mesoraco was on the disabled list the minimum 10 days and that’s a huge plus for the Cincinnati Reds catcher. Usually he spends enough time on the DL to claim squatter’s rights.

But after playing two rehab games at Class AAA Louisville to prove his shoulder is OK, Mesoraco was activated before Tuesday’s game. He wasn’t in the lineup but probably makes his playing return Thursday afternoon.
