Multi-year deal for Mesoraco?
MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that the Reds and catcher Devin Mesoraco are nearing an agreement on a multi-year contract extension that would avoid arbitration.
Mesoraco is first-year arbitration eligible and filed for $3.6 million while the Reds offered $2.45 million. He made $525,000 last season.
“My agent came back to me a couple of times. It’s more in his hands,” Mesoraco told me during Reds Caravan last week.
Mesoraco is open to a multi-year contract and it was something general manager Walt Jocketty said had been discussed on the day salary figures were exchanged.
“Definitely, no doubt,” Mesoraco said of his desire for a multi-year deal. “I definitely enjoy it here. It’s a perfect city for me. Team-wise, I feel as comfortable as I could possibly feel.”
