Both Leagues end on September 6th. So, Mesoraco can have more playing time at Carolina. Plus, he's been there for far too short a time.
AA is the best place for a Catcher to learn his craft. Mesoraco's fundamentals behind the plate are going to be finalized where he's at right now.
I agree leave him there for now and maybe even to start next season. I think he's finally in a comfortable place offensively allowing for him to concentrate on the finer points of catching for awhile.
