Pitt Baseball Promotes Volunteer Assistant Devin Mesoraco to Assistant Coach



Pitt Baseball

Pitt baseball promoted volunteer assistant coach Devin Mesoraco to assistant coach on Monday, which Mesoraco confirmed himself on Twitter.

Mesoraco joined the Panthers in July 2020 as a volunteer assistant coach. He has spent the past three seasons, 2021-23 in that position and will now serve as a full-time assistant coach working with the catchers.

Prior to Pitt, Mesoraco played eight seasons in the MLB as a catcher, including seven and a half with the Cincinnati Reds from 2010-18 and half a season with the New York Mets in 2018. His best season came in 2014, as he made the National League All-Star team and hit 25 home runs, the most of any catcher in the MLB.

Mesoraco is the second assistant coach that head coach Mike Bell has hired in the past few days. FGCU assistant coach Brandon Romans joined the program on Friday and has experience with recruiting, as hitting coach and with various position players.

Mesoraco and Romans replace two Pitt baseball assistants that left this summer. Assistant coach Joe Mercadante took the head coaching job at North Florida and assistant coach/recruiting coordinator Ty Megahee accepted a similar job at ACC foe Florida State.

Pitt has also been working throughout the offseason to bring in new transfers, with two new pitchers coming in last week from Columbia and another with WPIAL ties.
