Mesoraco, 26, had a breakout season in 2014. In his second season as the Reds' primary catcher, Mesoraco recorded career highs in all major offensive categories and was named to his first career All-Star team. He batted .273 with 25 home runs, 80 RBI and a .534 slugging percentage. He also improved defensively, according to advanced fielding statistics.
"This is only organization I've known," Mesoraco said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. "It's always been a pleasure to be part of the organization. There was definitely something I was very excited to go forward with."
