Mesoraco trying to avoid surgery
It’s a frustrating time for Devin Mesoraco. He can’t catch yet or even test his injured left hip. The Reds haven’t put him on the DL yet and he’s been limited to pinch-hitting duty. He could DH this weekend in the White Sox series.
Mesoraco acknowledged Tuesday that the outcome to repair his left hip impingement could very well be surgery. He is trying to avoid that, however.
We’ve done a number of injections. … It’s not like last year when I did my oblique and we know what we can do to rehab it. … It’s something that down the line, hopefully, is probably going to have to get fixed. At this point, it’s not an option because of how much of the season we have left. At some point, it’s probably going to come into the picture.”
“It’s a four-month-type thing , the surgery. We’re trying to do everything we can to stop that from happening. We did the PRP, the cortisone, the lubricating injections. We’re trying to do the best we can to be able to finish the season before it’s something that I do have to look at getting fixed.”
