Devin Mesoraco (C, NYM) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two Catcher Leagues

OWNED IN: 19% of leagues

ANALYSIS: New York Mets catcher Devin Mesoraco has found new life since being traded from the Reds. The new-ish Mets catcher has seen his ownership rise 20 percentage points in the last week and a half.

Despite his continued hot hitting (5 HR, 11 RBI, 11 R in the last 30 days), he is set to split time with Kevin Plawecki, who recently returned from a stint on the DL. A 25-home run hitter in 2014, Mesoraco has a 30% hard hit rate for the second time of his career (38.7% in 2014 and 31.6% this season). He is also going to opposite field more this season, as his 21.5% rate is his best since 2012 (23.5%).

Mesoraco has his highest value in two catcher formats, but he has some value in deeper formats as well. Fantasy owners would like to see him get more consistent playing time, but he does appear to be the best hitting catcher for the Mets.
