Devin Mesoraco will have surgery on his hip in New York on June 29 by Dr. Bryan Kelly.
The hip has limited Mesoraco to pinch hitting and designated hitting roles. He tried to learn the leftfield position but the pain became too much and surgery was planned.
With the hip impingement, both he and the team were hoping that he could contribute without squatting into the catcher's position by pinch hitting or as the designated hitter in American League parks.
"I don't regret not having it earlier and trying to play. The only thing I would have done differently was not trying to catch in Kansas City when I could help at DH," Mesoraco said. "I was feeling good and was anxious to try it"
His experiment in leftfield at Louisville was scrapped when pain became too much.

"The time to do it is now," Mesoraco said. "I will be able to do my normal off season workouts in early November, like I always do."
