Reds to reveal NLDS roster on Saturday
SAN FRANCISCO -- The Reds and Giants don't have to submit their National League Division Series rosters until Saturday prior to Game 1 -- set to be played at 9:30 p.m. ET on TBS. Cincinnati wasn't prepared to reveal its choices on Friday.

"We're not going to talk about it until [Saturday]," Reds manager Dusty Baker said.

The Reds brought 28 players to San Francisco -- 15 position players and 13 pitchers -- and will have to make three cuts. Catcher Devin Mesoraco is one of the players on the bubble, and his chances hinge on whether the club decides to carry three catchers in the NLDS.

"I'm here and happy to be a part of this, for whatever they've got planned," Mesoraco said.

Mesoraco, the Reds' top prospect entering the season, struggled in a backup role and batted .212 with five home runs in 54 games. He was demoted to Triple-A Louisville on Aug. 23 and has had only three at-bats since returning as a September callup -- and none since Sept. 10.

"I've been working hard to keep my swing together," Mesoraco said. "Whatever happens, I'll be fine either way."
