Rays have inquired as part of a 3 team deal.
Personally, I would not sell low on Mez at this point, as I still think he could be the catcher of the future. However, if the Rays could send someone interesting (like a pitcher) to the Royals and we could net Wil Myers, I'd pack Devin's bags for him.Rays Still Seek Catcher

The Rays continue “poking around” for a catcher, Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reports (on Twitter). They asked at least one team about the possibility of working on a three-way trade that would send Devin Mesoraco from Cincinnati to Tampa Bay.
Mesoraco, 24, appeared in 54 games with the Reds this past season, posting a .212/.288/.352 batting line in 184 plate appearances. He entered the season as the 16th-best prospect in MLB, according to Baseball America. The Rays currently have Jose Molina, Jose Lobaton, Robinson Chirinos and Chris Gimenez as internal catching options.

Not sure there is equal value there, so there would likely have to be other parts involved, but it could be interesting. Maybe something like:
Royals trade: Wil Myers to CIN
Rays trade: James Shields to KC
Reds trade: Devin Mesoraco and Tony Cingrani (or Mike Leake) to TB
I'd guess the Reds would likely have to give more than that. Thoughts?
