Mesoraco's suspension reduced to 2 games

The Cincinnati Reds announced Tuesday that Devin Mesoraco's original three-game suspension has been reduced to two games.

The infraction occurred in the third inning of a July 30 loss to the San Diego Padres, when Mesoraco made contact with umpire Chad Fairchild while arguing a pitch call.

The 24-year-old catcher, who made his major league debut in 2011, is batting .210 with five homers and 14 RBI in 52 games with the Reds this season.

In addition, the Reds recalled catcher Dioner Navarro from Triple-A Louisville and optioned pitcher Logan Ondrusek to Louisville.
