Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco took a foul top off the mask Saturday and has been diagnosed with what the team is calling a “minor” concussion (also known as a “minor” brain injury).

Mesoraco told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com that he “doesn’t feel too bad when he’s not doing anything.” Which is another way of saying he does feel bad when he is doing something, of course.

Mesoraco signed a four-year, $28 million deal with the Reds in January and manager Bryan Price quickly said he plans to ride the 26-year-old catcher into the ground this season by starting him 145 times behind the plate.
