The Mets have signed catcher Devin Mesoraco to a minor league contract that includes an invite to big league camp.
The 30-year-old was dealt to the Mets last season in exchange for Matt Harvey. He got off to a hot start but quickly faded, finishing the season with a .221/.308/.398 triple slash line. He'll serve as catching depth behind Wilson Ramos and Travis d'Arnaud.
Mesoraco went 3-for-3 with two doubles, an RBI and one walk in the Mets win over the Nationals.
After missing most of September, Mesoraco embarks on what could be his last week as a Met. He will be a free agent after this season so he has an incentive to finish the season strong.
Devin Mesoraco went 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Mets lost to the Braves 5-4.
The home run was Mesoraco’s first since July 3rd and just his second since June 18th. For the season, he is now hitting .226 with nine home runs, 28 RBI, and an on-base percentage of .299. At this time, Mesoraco does not have much fantasy value.
Mesoraco finished the night 1-for-3 with two runs scored, one RBI and one walk.
Mesoraco has been splitting catching duties with Kevin Plawecki. He's only hitting .227 with eight home runs for the year. There is speculation Mesoraco could be moved by the trade deadline, which could bump up his value slightly if he goes to a better hitting team.
Devin Mesoraco went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run on Tuesday but ended up leaving the game after being hit in the head on a backswing. He has already passed the concussion protocol, but the team will continue to monitor him this week, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports on Twitter.
Mesoraco has already passed the concussion tests but will likely miss at least a few days. More will be known today after he can be re-evaluated, but the fact that he has already been cleared for a concussion is a great sign. With an off day on Thursday, the earliest he could return would be Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays.
