The short and disappointing 2015 season for Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco has finally come to an end.

No more being used as a DH during Interleague games, no more late-inning pinch-hitting duty or even an experiment as a leftfielder.

The decision has been made to undergo season-ending hip surgery in New York on June 29 to repair a left hip impingement.

Performing the surgery will be Dr. Bryan Kelly who says that it will take four to six months of rehabilitation for the Reds’ starting backstop.

He should be able to resume catching and be ready for the start of the 2016 season.

Mesoraco says that the problem with his hip is that he has bones rubbing together and it effected his range of motion when playing catcher and has caused other problems.

The 27-year-old, who has been with the Reds since 2011, has not caught a game since April 12. He was placed on the DL May 25.

A native of Pennsylvania, Mesoraco ends the season with only 45 at bats in 23 games.

He was a 2014 National League All-Star.

Rumor has it that Major League Baseball will use a seventh umpire during this postseason

According to several media outlets, Major League Baseball will be using a seventh umpire in the League Championship Series and World Series.

The extra umpire will rotate between the field and replay booth.

The seventh umpire will work home plate in Game 1, go to right field in the 2nd game and then work in the replay booth in New York for the rest of the series.

Another umpire will work the replay booth the first two games and go down on the field the remaining games of the series.

The proposed changes will go into effect for the best-of-seven series this postseason.

The National Football League usually has its annual draft in New York City.

But the league is currently inviting cities to put up bids to see who is interested in hosting the event.

This week, the NFL invited Chicago, Los Angeles and New York to make their presentations to host, but no one emerged as the front-runner.

It has been reported that more than a dozen cities have shown interest in being a host in 2015. They include: Boston, Canton, Cleveland, Green Bay, Houston, Nashville, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The NFL says it’ll chose a site sometime this summer.

Crew dominates Toronto FC, 2-0 to win Trillium Cup; Higuain scores twice again to put team back in playoff hunt

A few weeks ago, the Columbus Crew were 10 points out of playoff contention and the fans wanted the management to fire head coach Robert Warzycha.

Now after a couple of shutout victories over New York and Toronto FC, the fans are happy again and the team is back in the playoff hunt.

The reason for the turnaround is the play of Federico Higuain, who the past two seasons is the new Guillermo Barros Schelotto.

Higuain can score from anywhere on the field if his teammates give him the ball. Teams have to account for his whereabouts at all time. Playing with the Crew’s other scoring threat Dominic Oduro, the field opens up for goals to be scored.

Higuain, the 28-year-old Argentinian as the team’s captain has taken over the last few games by scoring four goals and has given Crew fans a hope for the playoffs.

The Crew with 29 points, trail only New England and Chicago for the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.

Saturday’s win allowed the Crew to win their fifth Trillium Cup in six years in the rivalry with Toronto FC.

The triumph also allowed Warzycha to tie his former coach, Tom Fitzgerald (1996-2001) at 70 wins as a Crew head coach. The 70th win makes Warzycha one of only 14 MLS coaches to achieve the plateau and four are active: Sigi Schmid (Seattle), Jason Kreis (Real Salt Lake), Bruce Arena (LA Galaxy) and Dominic Kinnear (Houston).
