RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Mesoraco ended up hitting .212/.288/.352 and was left off the playoff roster to cap off a disappointing season. Meanwhile, Yasmani Grandal, the catcher traded to the Padres instead of Mesoraco, had a pretty good season (though he was suspended for 50 games in November for testing positive for Testosterone). All is not lost with Mesoraco - his professional career began slowly, and many catching prospects struggle initially with the bat. Still, it wouldn't be a surprise if Mesoraco was the backup to Ryan Hanigan again in 2013 or even started the year in the minors to regain his confidence at the plate.

2012

Because the Reds had both Ryan Hanigan and Ramon Hernandez on a team expected to contend for the playoffs, Mesoraco had to spend the bulk of the season at Triple-A Louisville, not getting the call until rosters expanded in September. Hernandez is now in Colorado, so the deck has been partially cleared for Mesoraco. Look for Hanigan to get the bulk of the starts early on, thanks to his defensive prowess. His bat appears to be ready now - it's just a matter of manager Dusty Baker getting comfortable with his ability to call a game behind the plate. That focus on defense early on might hurt Mesoraco's production out of the gate.

2011

After scuffling at the plate in his first two-and-a-half seasons as a professional, Mesoraco exploded in 2010, hitting a combined .302/.377/.587 at three levels before slowing down a bit in the Arizona Fall League. While the offensive development was promising, Mesoraco's receiving skills behind the plate still need improving. The Reds re-signed Ramon Hernandez for another season, so look for Mesoraco to spend most of the year at Triple-A Louisville. He'll have to produce once he reaches the majors, with the Reds drafting another catcher in Yasmani Grandal in 2010.

2008

Catchers often take a long-time to develop, particularly 19-year-olds fresh out of high school that didn't face elite competition already, so don't be too disappointed by Mesoraco's Rookie League numbers. The Reds' first-round pick in the 2007 draft rose rapidly up the charts in the months before the draft. Given the dearth of catching prospects in their system, they'll be tempted to promote him quickly, but he's going to take awhile to get there. If you're looking for a catcher from this past draft class for your minor league system, you're better off going after Baltimore's Matt Wieters or Toronto's J.P. Arencibia.
