High energy player with great, natural leadership skills. Mesoraco is an amazing natural athlete that was well known entering the year, but wasn't thought of as anything near a first-round pick. He had Tommy John surgery the fall of his junior year which led to a so-so year serving as his team's DH. Now fully healthy, he exploded this spring, with a huge season at the plate while showing off his big arm from behind it. He has above average tools across the board, and runs extremely well for a catcher. He has exciting power potential, and hits the ball to the gaps. He is athletic enough that he may be able to handle a move to second base a la Craig Biggio, but his arm is such a dynamic tool that it may be wasted there. He has committed to Virginia, where he was at first thought to be somewhat of a difficult sign, but now that he's a lock for the first round college won't be an option.
