Mesoraco and Phillips paying off Big Dividends!

Dallas Morning News...................

At the start of the 2015 season, a major hole for the Spurs was at catcher.  It seems for now they landed their man Devin Mesoraco, who was brought over in a trade with LVI.  Mesoraco who is hitting .300 with 16 2B, 16 HR and 44 RBI, and is tied with Andrew McCutchen with a team leading 16 HR's.  His production is very impressive since he only has 240 at-bats, which is 100 less than McCutchen.  The Spurs have to make sure they don't over use Mesoraco because of hip problems which everyone knows is one of the biggest obstacles a catcher has!
The Spurs are very pleased with the play of veteran 2B-man Brandon Phillips who is hitting .318 with 9 2B and 8 HR's and hasn't committed an error this season.  He is also battling the injury bug.  DFW currently has a slim lead over powerful Division opponent SPL.  If they hope to keep ahead of the Pilots, Mesoraco and Phillips must find a way to stay healthy and on the field!
