The final goal of Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco's rehab assignment at Double-A Pensacola was achieved on Tuesday night. Mesoraco successfully caught nine innings in back-to-back games.

Following his day off on Wednesday, the Reds could make a decision on whether or not Mesoraco should be activated from the disabled list. He has been working his way back from 2016 surgeries on his right hip and left shoulder.

"He came out of it just fine," Reds manager Bryan Price said of the back-to-back games. "This is kind of the point in time where we'll re-assess what he needs for any type of finishing touches or polish before he's activated.

"I'd like to know how he feels today in the aftermath. If he feels pretty beat up, there might be some more reason to get him a little bit more activity there just to increase his stamina and durability to make sure he's more comfortable at the plate and behind the plate."

In eight games for Pensacola, Mesoraco is batting .143 (4-for-28) with one home run and three RBIs.

"The numbers would suggest [not enough at-bats], but I think you have to assess the quality of the at-bat, not just simply look at the batting average," Price said. "It's how he is seeing the ball and how his strike-zone command is and how his approach is. We'll take into account the opinion of [Pensacola manager] Pat Kelly and his staff as well as Devin's to make sure everyone is satisfied with how he's feeling both defensively and offensively."
