CINCINNATI (AP) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco had surgery on his right hip Monday, the latest major setback for the former All-Star.

Mesoraco already was on the disabled list following surgery May 10 for a significant tear in his left shoulder. His latest surgery will prevent him from catching again until January.

The 28-year-old catcher had surgery on his other hip last season, limiting him to 23 games. Reds manager Bryan Price said there's no indication the hip problems would become a chronic issue.

The former first-round draft pick had one of the best seasons by a Reds catcher in 2014, hitting 25 homers and driving in 80 runs. A few months later, he agreed to a four-year, $28 million through the 2018 season.
