Reds place Mesoraco on 15-day DL; Cueto examined

CINCINNATI -- The Reds put catcher Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a sore left hip that limited him to pinch hitting and filling in as an interleague DH for the past six weeks.

Is now the time for the Reds to call up Jon Moscot?

Fantasy Roundup: Iglesias’ Stellar Start

Last afternoon my buddy @fantasybbhero told me to use Raisel Iglesias in DFS (daily fantasy sports) and I honestly overlooked his advice.

Before signing he was used primarily as a three inning reliever, but...
