Mesorace (neck) returns to the starting lineup Friday in Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Mesoraco has been out since Sept. 3 with neck discomfort. The Mets are carrying four catchers at the moment, so it's unclear how much playing time he'll receive over the final nine games of the season.

Manager Mickey Callaway said Mesoraco (neck) will start Friday against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mesoraco hasn't played since Sept. 3 due to neck discomfort. Prior to suffering the injury, the backstop hit .213/.295/.374 with 10 homers through 80 games with the Reds and Mets. He'll look to finish the season on a high note now that he's back to full health.

Mesoraco will miss at least one more week after receiving an epidural injection for his neck discomfort Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mesoraco has been battling the neck issue since late August. Previous reports suggested that the epidural could lead to him being shut down for the season, though now it appears that he still has a chance to return. The Mets have little reason to risk injury in a lost season, however, and with two other catchers on their expanded roster, they could well choose to shut him down.

Mesoraco may require an epidural injection due to neck discomfort, which could sidelined him for the rest of the season, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mesoraco exited Monday's contest against the Dodgers due to neck and back stiffness and would've been placed on the disabled list if not for the expansion of rosters this month, rendering that transaction useless. Since Aug. 23, he's been nursing a bulging disc issue in his neck, which forced him to miss about a week of action. The catcher will meet with doctors Thursday to determine whether he will require the injection. Either way, don't expect to see him play again for an extended period of time until he is no longer dealing with any discomfort.

Mesoraco could miss several days with a sore neck and back, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Mickey Callaway said that Mesoraco would "absolutely" be placed on the 10-day disabled list at a different time of the year, though the extended rosters mean that the team doesn't have to go that route and can still carry two other catchers. Kevin Plawecki and Tomas Nido will handle catching duties while Mesoraco remains unable to play.

Mesoraco was diagnosed with a neck sprain and will require a few days off to recover, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mesoraco added that he doesn't expect to go on the DL, but that may become an option if he's still dealing with discomfort by the end of the weekend. Prior to Friday's game, the Mets recalled Tomas Nido from the minors in order to serve as Kevin Plawecki's backup while Mesoraco is sidelined.

Mesoraco is still considered day-to-day as he is evaluated for neck stiffness, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mesoraco was speculated to be placed on the disabled list earlier Friday, but the Mets instead optioned Dominic Smith and Jack Reinheimer to the minors to create roster space. Mesoraco was set to undergo an MRI after exiting Thursday's game, Ehalt reports, although the results are not yet known.
