Latest Update Indians-#Athletics reported discussing OF/1B Brandon Moss. Wed Dec, 03, 05:57 PM
Has a solid left-handed swing with good power, run-producing skills and sound fundamentals. Can play either corner outfield position, as well as first base. Draws plenty of walks.
Flaws: : Doesn't hit left-handed pitching with regularity in Major League Baseball. Must also reduce his strikeouts total to thrive at the highest level. Lacks consistency in all areas of the game.
No matter where Moss plays next season, he is going to be a solid contributor in the power department. He was much better in the first half of the 2014 season, but a lot of his regression in the second half can be attributed to injury. It seems as though the A's are on somewhat of a rebuilding plan so moving Moss at his highest value seems to make sense.Analyst: David Kerr
Moss finished this season hitting .234 with 70 runs, 25 home runs and 81 RBI over 147 games this season. As stated above it looks as if he will be ready to go for the start of spring training.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Moss' bad hip bothered him for the latter part of the season as evident by his .173 batting average after the All-Star break. Though he did break out and hit two home runs in a Wild Card Game loss, Moss has been dealing with uncomfortable pain for several months and will get it taken care of later this month. He should be ready for spring training barring any type of setback post-surgery.Analyst: David Kerr
Moss's two home runs seemed like they would be the difference for the A's, who blew four different leads in the game. He did everything in his power -- pun intended -- to advance his team to the ALDS, but unfortunately the Royals' small-ball was too much to handle for the A's batteries. Analyst: Spencer Silva
