Reds correspondent John Fay checks in with news that the Reds have signed their top pick, Punxsutawney (Pa.) High catcher Devin Mesoraco. No details on the contract have been released, but Mesoraco will report to Sarasota tomorrow and is expected to play on the team’s Gulf Coast League affiliate.
“We had a lot of predraft discussions,” scouting director Chris Buckley told Fay. “But he didn’t graduate high school until Friday. So he wasn’t eligible to sign until then.”
Mesoraco’s Punxsutawney High team ended up winning a state title.
