Latest Update Brandon Moss is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Friday. Fri Aug, 15, 02:36 PM
Has a solid left-handed swing with decent power and sound fundamentals. Can play either corner outfield position, as well as first base.
Flaws: : Needs to prove he can hit left-handed pitching with regularity in order to play an increased role in the bigs. Must reduce his strikeout total.
With lefty Alex Wood on the mound for the Braves, Moss, who usually sits against southpaws, will ride the pine until the A's need a left-handed bat off the bench. Nate Frieman will handle the work at first base with Jonny Gomes out in left field.Analyst: Howard Bender
With the Royals starting lefty Jason Vargas Moss will sit. Moss surprisingly is hitting .282 against lefties this season which is a change from his .251 career number.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Moss has struggled as of late, but he really turned up the heat on Tuesday night. If he can string together a few good games, he could do major damage as evident by his 23 home runs and 76 RBIs this year.Analyst: David Kerr
Moss drove in his first two runs of August on Monday night, ending a nine-game stretch without contributing to the A's offensive attack. Despite his recent struggles, Moss remains on pace to reach 30 home runs for the second season in a row, while surpassing his career-high 87 RBI that was also set in 2013. Even with a .248 batting average, his power upside makes him a must-start in all fantasy formats the rest of the way.Analyst: Matthew Beck
