Still waiting on those roster cuts that we expected yesterday. Sure, Corky Miller and Carlos Fisher were sent out (I know that comes as a big shock to you), but the Reds still have a ton of decisions to make…and by “a ton,” I mean that there are still 38 guys in big league camp, so 13 of them have to go. We’re expecting all or most of those cuts to be made today, at some point.
While you’re waiting, take a look at this profile of 2007’s first round draft pick Devin Mesoraco:
Mesoraco has fallen down prospect lists, but to the people who have seen him every day this spring, Mesoraco’s strides have been huge.
“This year one of the biggest transitions I’ve seen in this camp and any camp is the improvements he’s made defensively. Mike Stefanski and Pat Kelly get a ton of credit, but Mesoraco gets all the credit because he’s made the adjustments and he works hard,” said Louisville manager Rick Sweet, a former big league catcher.
If you listened to our interview with Devin, you are probably cheering particularly hard for him, because he seems like a great kid.
