Indians' Brandon Moss 'puts on show' in first BP of the spring
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) Indians outfielder Brandon Moss took batting practice for the first time this spring, and slightly ahead of schedule. According to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com, he was "putting on a show" with plenty of towering shots to right field.
"I was just trying to find some quick twitch in there instead of letting my huge muscles take over," Moss said after the session.
Moss underwent surgery in October to repair the damage to his injured left hip. He fought through pain in the hip late last season after dealing with stiffness early in the year. He hit 234/.334/.438 with 25 home runs and 81 RBI in 500 at-bats last season.
Indians' Brandon Moss: 'I feel outstanding'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/24/15) Indians outfielder Brandon Moss is extremely optimistic about being ready by opening day and has looked and felt good in the early portion of spring workouts, MLB.com reports.
"I feel really good. I'm hitting all the marks," Moss said. "I'm ahead on a lot of what we're doing. I feel great. Obviously, they have a timetable and a frame in which they're trying to keep me to make sure everything goes as planned, but right now I feel outstanding. It's going much better than even I anticipated it going. It's looking really good right now."
Moss underwent surgery in October to repair the damage to his injured left hip. He fought through pain in the hip late last season after dealing with stiffness early in the year.
"I was surprised at how well I was doing early in the year to be honest," he said. "The hip was so bad. That's one of those things that happened the way it happened. It's over with. ... You move on and, shoot, I've got a great opportunity here with this team. You talk about a good core group of guys, this team has it, and it's a team that's been trending in the right direction. It's a great place to be, and I'm pumped."
Moss hit .234/.334/.438 with 25 home runs and 81 RBI in 500 at-bats last season.
Indians' Francona not committing to Brandon Moss for Opening Day
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Indians outfielder Brandon Moss is expected to be healthy enough to play games by mid-March after recovering from a hip injury. However, it remains to be seen whether Moss will be ready by Opening Day.
Manager Terry Francona is not ready to say whether that will happen or not, according to MLB.com.
Moss hit .234 with 25 home runs and 81 RBI in 500 plate appearances in 2014 for the Athletics.
Indians' Brandon Moss hoping to be cleared by mid-March
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Indians outfielder Brandon Moss is hoping to be cleared for games by mid-March, according to MLB.com.
Moss is coming off hip surgery, and is progressing through hitting and running drills. He has not experienced any setbacks, and is hoping to start more specific running drills in about 10 days. The club is hoping Moss will be cleared for hitting on the field in early March, and will be cleared for games by mid-March.
Moss hit .234/.334/.438 over 500 at-bats last year.
|2014 Summary: Brandon Moss slugged his way to his first All-Star appearance, banging 21 home runs and driving in 66 runs in the first half, while batting .268. In a matter of weeks, Moss went from must-start in Fantasy to highly sittable, as he had a grand total of eight extra-base hits over the months of August and September. Moss hit just .173 after the break, and rising strikeout and popup rates played a key role. Late in the season, Moss revealed he had been dealing with a hip injury, and he had surgery to repair a torn labrum in October. The Athletics traded Moss to the Indians for second base prospect Joe Wendle at the annual Winter Meetings.
Playing time status: Moss is expected to be behind his normal offseason preparation schedule, but there is a chance he could be ready to be in the Indians' lineup on opening day.
2015 Outlook: The move to Cleveland should be a good one for Moss' power production, as long as he is not hindered by the aftermath of his hip surgery. However, don't expect Moss to play more often against lefties, as his new skipper, Terry Francona, is about as likely to platoon his hitters as his old manager, Bob Melvin. Still, with the aid of park factors, Moss could rank as a top 15 first baseman and top 30 outfielder worth targeting in the middle rounds of standard mixed league drafts.
