NEW YORK -- Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco, on the disabled list with a strained left oblique, began his rehab assignment on Thursday with Double-A Pensacola while catching pitcher Mat Latos.

Mesoraco had three plate appearances with two walks, a sacrifice fly and an RBI.

"He came out of it in good shape. That's a good thing," Reds manager Bryan Price said on Friday. "We're going to incrementally add a couple of innings to each of his outings today and tomorrow."

If Mesoraco has no issues this weekend, he will likely be activated before the start of the next series at St. Louis.
