The Cincinnati Reds placed catcher Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a strained left hamstring.

Mesoraco was injured during Friday's game against the Atlanta Braves.

The club recalled catcher Tucker Barnhart from Triple-A Louisville to take Mesoraco's spot on the 25-man roster.

Brayan Pena will start in place of Mesoraco while he is out.

Mesoraco, 25, has a batting line of .468/.509/.787 in 53 plate appearances this season.
