Part of the fallout of the Ryan Hanigan injury was that Devin Mesoraco was called up to AA Carolina. He hit his first homer for the Mudcats today. Mesoraco is a former first round pick who hasn't hit at all until this year. This year though, he was destroying Carolina league pitching, with his 1.035 OPS leading the league. He'd have to be considered the most pleasant surprise in the Reds system this season.
