Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right hip, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Mesoraco was already out for the season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder back in May. The backstop also had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip last year.
Just more bad luck for Mesoraco, who turned 28 years old last month. He hasn’t been able to complete a full, healthy season since coming into the league in 2011. He broke out in 2014, batting .273/.359/.534 with 25 home runs and 80 RBI in 440 plate appearances, but stepped to the plate only 51 times last year and 55 times this year before being sidelined.
