MLB Team Report - Cincinnati Reds - INSIDE PITCH Devin Mesoarco is the hottest hitter in baseball but the catcher won't be moving up in the Reds' batting order. At least, not yet. Mesoraco has a hit in all 10 games this season and has a .541 batting average. The hitting streak is his career high and the longest to start a season by a Reds player since Hall of Famer Barry Larkin hit in 12 in a row in 1995.

SS Nick Franklin started Sunday against the Marlins. Several teams, including the New York Mets, have tried to trade for Franklin, a 23-year-old switch-hitter who is considered to have a bright future. He hit 12 homers and had 45 RBIs last season after taking over at 2B in May. But he lost his job when the Mariners signed 2B Robinson Cano to a $240-million contract. Franklin started this season at Triple A, where he tore it up, hitting .395 with four homers and 13 RBIs in 11 games. The Mariners promoted him to the majors on April 16, and he tripled on the first pitch he saw.
