(7/13/14) Athletics first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss made it to 20 home runs before the All-Star break after clubbing his 20th home run Saturday at Seattle. Moss spoiled Hisashi Iwakuma's bid for a complete-game shutout when he hit a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning.
The All-Star slugger is batting .273 (9 for 33) with two home runs, three doubles, five RBI, five runs and two walks in nine July games.

(7/8/14) Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss is absent from the lineup Tuesday for the game against San Francisco. He had returned to the lineup Monday night after missing two games with an ankle ailment.
Moss, who is hitless in his last seven at-bats, is on pace to rack up about 120 RBI this season.

(7/7/14) Athletics outfielder Brandon Moss is back in the lineup Monday, batting fourth and filling the DH role for his game against the Giants.
Moss missed Saturday and Sunday while dealing with an ankle injury, but after an MRI came back clean Sunday, he appears ready to contribute as a hitter. He owns a .272/.359/.530 line with 19 home runs and 62 RBI in 298 at-bats.
|MRI comes back clean for Brandon Moss |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/6/14) Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss underwent an MRI, which came back negative with no structural damage to his ankle, MLB.com reports Sunday.
Moss suffered the injury Friday and was out of the lineup Saturday and Sunday. He is hitting .272 with 19 homers and 62 RBI this season.
|After breaking through as a platoon player with a .291 batting average, 21 home runs and .954 OPS in 2012, Brandon Moss became an integral part of the Athletics lineup in 2013, setting career highs with 30 home runs and 87 RBI. He got in a hole early with a .153 batting average in May and went into the All-Star break batting just .228, but over the final two months, he was a terror, batting .294 with 13 home runs, a .671 slugging percentage and a 1.046 OPS. He still sat against the majority of left-handed pitchers -- and for good reason. He hit .200 with a .649 OPS against them compared to .268 with a .904 OPS against righties. But even when he didn't start, the Atheltics made sure to work him into the lineup in the later innings. As a platoon player with consistency issues, Moss is most useful as a cheap source of power later in Rotisserie drafts, but he might actually be undervalued in that role. He was one of just 14 players to hit at least 30 homers last year, after all. At first base, he may not measure up, but with dual eligibility in the outfield, he's draftable in all formats.
