MLB: Mesoraco to begin season on 15-day disabled list
CINCINNATI — Punxsutawney native Devin Mesoraco will start the 2014 season on the 15-day disabled list because of an injury to his oblique muscle.
The Cincinnati Reds announced the move Sunday, meaning the third-year catcher will be unavailable until Saturday, at the earliest. The move was made retroactive to March 21.
Mesoraco, 25, hit .238 in 103 games last season, with nine home runs and 42 RBIs.
