        Mets Re-Sign Devin Mesoraco


        by JEFF TODD

        The Mets have announced the re-signing of catcher Devin Mesoraco. He’ll receive a minor-league pact with an invitation to Spring Training.

        Mesoraco, 30, represents an important addition for the Mets. Wilson Ramos and Travis d’Arnaud presently sit atop the depth chart, but the latter (who has a non-guaranteed, $3,515,000 arbitration salary) remains a candidate to be traded or cut loose if the club sees an opportunity or prefers to save some cash.

        Returning to the Mets makes sense for Mesoraco, though it’s surely a disappointment to do so without a roster spot. He suited up for 66 games with the club last year after coming over from the Reds in exchange for Matt Harvey — a swap that came together after both players ran out of chances with their original organizations.

        Mesoraco turned things around at the plate upon landing in New York, though he didn’t sustain a hot start. Ultimately, he provided the Mets with 229 plate appearances of .222/.306/.409 hitting and swatted ten home runs. He turned in middling framing numbers and isn’t generally regarded as a standout defender, though Mesoraco did strike up a rapport with Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom.

          I like bringing him back. He was a solid backup last season and a good clubhouse guy. Odds are, he'll see a lot of time in Flushing with d'Arnaud banged up and Nido still developing.

            Yeah solid addition. He's a veteran and as good defensively as anyone else we have with some power. The deGrom connection makes it an even easier move. Those are the small additions that add a few wins to the season.

                Yeah it might be hard to lure him back from retirement. His work with deGrom was very good but you should see the people on Twitter saying the team should throw whatever money it takes to get him back. Solid part-time player but come on.

                  Last season Mesoraco was paid 13.1 M with the Mets picking up 7.3 M, after Mesoraco's 2014 season he was awarded a 4 yr, 28 M contract, this was his walk year. This season he was signed to a MiL contract at 100 K. That was probably hard to swallow after putting up his best numbers since and before his singular outlier season, although the numbers weren't note worthy.

                  Part of the picture is the 11.8 M the Mets have invested in the position plus the 600 K for Nido. Based upon his career other than 2014 (.216/.289/.355/.647), Mesoraco doesn't have the leverage he and his agent might believe. If a number like 2 M isn't enough...so be it.

                  Ten days ago Ramos was hitting .310-.758 OPS with 14 RBI in 66 PA, since he is hitting .143 - .342 with 4 RBI in 30 PA. He is in a slump...no different than Nimmo was or Conforto is in now. Play Nido and if circumstance advises, review again in July.

                    it will be interesting to see if Nido catches deGrom's or Thor's next starts...

                    so far, deGrom hasn't allowed a run while Nido has caught him...but has a 4.80 ERA when Ramos has caught him; and a 13.5 ERA when d'Arnaud caught him this season'

                    Thor had a 1.92 ERA in the 12 games that Nido has caught him in his career; a 5.62 ERA when Ramos has caught him this season; and a 8.1 ERA when d'Arnaud has caught him this season...bottom line with Thor is that he's been too focused on the runners this season, he needs to focus on the batter

                      Mesoraco had a 48 hour window where the Mets had to release him if any other team wanted to add him to their 25 man roster.

                      Nobody did.

                      You ain't that good anymore dude.

                        Rene Rivera is at AAA right now. Like Mesoraco, he would have to be added to the 40 man roster.

                        I would take Rivera over Meso in a heartbeat.
