Mesoraco undergoes right hip surgery

Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco, out for the season since late April with a torn labrum in his left shoulder, had surgery Monday morning to repair the labrum in his right hip.

May 10, 2016 at 7:31 PM ET

Mesoraco's shoulder 'worse than expected'

It was already unlikely that Devin Mesoraco would be able to return to the Reds' lineup this season because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder. What the doctors discovered during Tuesday's surgery made that prognosis definite.
