Reds sign No. 1 draft pick
Catcher Devin Mesoraco, the Reds' No. 1 draft pick (15th overall), signed a contract Friday in Sarasota and begins his professional career with the Gulf Coast Rookie Reds.
"We are very pleased to reach an agreement with Devin and are looking forward to getting him on the field soon," GM Wayne Krivksy said.
Mesoraco, 18, hit .467 with four homers and 21 RBIs this spring for Punxsutawney (Pa.) High School.
Pitcher Kyle Lotzkar, a third-round sandwich pick, remains unsigned but visited the team here Friday. He is from nearby Delta, British Columbia.
