FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: NO COMPETITION TO SEE IF DEVIN MESORACO CAN BE SALVAGED

Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price met with reporters on Monday to discuss to state of his rebuilding club and soon he got around to catcher Devin Mesoraco who has been in a perpetual state of injury and rehabilitation over the last two years.  With a grand total of just 39 games played in 2015 and 2016 combined, Mesoraco has become just about a completely forgotten man in fantasy baseball terms and understandably so.  Keep in mind this is the same guy who posted a huge breakout year in 2014 when Mesoraco slammed 25 home runs and batted .273 in showcasing himself as a new star at the position.  Alas very serious hip and shoulder injuries resulted in surgeries and so now we are at the point where Price said Mesoraco will only play "50-60 percent" of the time at least early on  in the season.  So in terms of fantasy baseball, no one will be fighting you to draft Mesoraco this spring.  Now while entertaining the idea of drafting Mesoraco seems foolish, at catcher we always have to be on the lookout for value given how shallow the position is.  And also keep in mind Mesoraco is still just 28 and in his prime.  So while we wouldn't draft Mesoraco as anything but a backup, a last round hedge pick would not be a terrible idea.
