Reds awaiting result of Mesoraco's appeal
PHILADELPHIA -- As of Monday afternoon, there was no word on an appeal for Reds rookie catcher Devin Mesoraco's three-game suspension. Mesoraco was disciplined for making contact while arguing with an umpire and being ejected on July 30 against the Padres -- the same game during which he suffered a concussion.

"We're awaiting," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "We've got some tentative word, but I have to wait to hear from Walt [Jocketty] on what it is exactly."

Jocketty, Cincinnati's general manager, is not traveling with the club this week. Mesoraco started behind the plate while Mike Leake pitched Monday against the Phillies.

If the suspension is upheld before rosters are expanded on Sept. 1, there would be ramifications. The Reds would have to make a move to bring in a catcher while still playing with 24 men.
