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.

Reds’ newest bullpen member is Nick Christiani; replaces Jonathan Broxton

Right-handed reliever Nick Christiani, who has pitched the last two seasons at Triple-A Louisville, was told late Thursday morning when Bats manager Jim Riggleman told him he was going to the major leagues to pitch for the Reds.

He was getting his first promotion after the Reds placed Jonathan Broxton on the disabled list with flexor mass strain in his right forearm.

Christiani was 6-5 with a 4.05 ERA, 15 walks and 48 strikeouts in 47 games this season for Louisville. Over his last 17 appearances, the 26-year-old had a 2.79 ERA. Of his 23 inherited runners, only three scored.

Christiani made his major league debut Friday night vs. the Milwaukee Brewers pitching 1 1/3 innings with 1 walk and 1 strikeout.

The National League Central Division race is a dogfight between the Reds and Cardinals.

But let’s not forget about the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Pirates reached 15 wins in the month of April for the first time since 1992 after their 9-0 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Pittsburgh rookie pitcher Jeff Locke allowed three hits in seven innings. His performance allowed the pirates to move into first place in the National League Central with a record of 15-10.

Locke, now 3-1, has pitched 13 scoreless innings in his last two starts.

Reds talking new contract with Broxton as closer; move would allow Chapman to start

There are rumors out of Cincinnati that the Reds have had substantial contract talks about retaining reliever Jonathan Broxton with a multiyear deal.

If the Reds can sign him, they’ll be able to move Aroldis Chapman to the starting rotation with Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Bronson Arroyo and Homer Bailey.

The Reds acquired Broxton from the Kansas City Royals in the July trading deadline. He was 3-3 with a 2.82 ERA and saved four games in six opportunities for the NL Central Division Championship team.

Broxton is also talking to other teams to find a good fit, but he is giving the Reds the first opportunity to sign him.

Reds turn on power to help Bailey win for first time vs. Brewers, 3-1


Coming into Friday’s matchup with the Milwaukee Brewers, Reds pitcher Homer Bailey had his ups-and-downs over the years and was 0-5 in 10 career games.

Homer Bailey

But that all changed as the tall Texan upped his record to 9-6 overall and has won four straight starts for the first time in his career.

Scott Rolen

Bailey tied a career-high with 10 strikeouts in hurling eight innings to beat the Brewers for the first time, 3-1 allowing Cincinnati to hold onto first-place in the National League Central Division.

Zack Cozart

The Reds moved to 13 games over .500 for the first time in 2012 as they won for the ninth time in 11 games and rode the home run bats of Zack Cozart, Jay Bruce and Scott Rolen.

With Cozart’s homer, that means there have been 73 consecutive games with a home run at Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park. It is the longest streak since Coors Field in Denver had 80 in a row from 2002 and 2003.

The Brewers starting pitcher Marco Estrada falls to 0-4 after pitching seven innings, giving up seven hits and allowing the three homers.

Reds’ closer Aroldis Chapman earned his 16th save in 20 chances. He hit 100 mph twice in 13 pitches and struck out two batters.
