No setbacks for Indians' Brandon Moss
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Indians outfielder Brandon Moss has come almost all the way back from hip surgery last October.
"I was cautiously optimistic," Moss said, per MLB.com's Jordan Bastian. "To be honest, I was very surprised at how fast it started going. I didn't have any setbacks. It shocked me."
Moss was hoping to be ready by Opening Day, but he's already playing, causing manager Terry Francona to say that the team is "beyond pleased."
"He's the one asking to play the outfield," Francona added. "We keep saying, 'Do you want to DH?' 'No.' It's pretty obvious how hard he's worked, and I think it's really going to pay off for us."

|(3/15/15) The Indians continue to battle a stomach bug that's spreading through the locker room.
On Sunday, outfielder Michael Brantley and pitcher Cody Anderson were scratched after being laid up with flu-like symptoms.
Meanwhile, Brandon Moss, who missed the last two games with illness, returned to the Indians lineup on Sunday. Moss was fourth in the Indians' lineup, playing right field.
Stomach illness prevents Brandon Moss from playing Friday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) Indians outfielder Brandon Moss was scratched from the spring lineup Friday due to a stomach illness, per The Plain Dealer. Moss was slated to play in the outfield for the first time this spring coming off October hip surgery.
Moss is batting .500 (3 for 6) with one triple, two home runs, two RBI, two runs and two strikeouts in two spring games.
Indians' Brandon Moss homers in spring training debut
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) In his first game wearing an Indians uniform, Brandon Moss hit a leadoff home run in the seventh inning of Cleveland's 4-3 loss to the Mariners.
Moss was the Indians' designated hitter and went 1-for-3 for the afternoon.
"The fact that he's out here and looks so healthy is really exciting for us," Indians manager Terry Francona said, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Indians' Brandon Moss to make spring debut Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Indians outfielder Brandon Moss will make his Cactus League debut Monday, serving as the team's designated hitter, WTAM.com reports.
Moss was initially expected to be sidelined until mid-March while working his way back from offseason hip surgery, but manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that he was "streaking" through his rehab. Moss ran the bases at full speed Saturday, MLB.com reports.
"[He] ran a couple singles, first to thirds, doubles, second to home -- he did everything," Francona said. "I was actually amazed with how good he looked. He's going to do it again [Sunday]. We're going to take him out and make sure he slides on the mats."
Moss hit .234/.334/.438 with 25 home runs and 81 RBI in 500 at-bats last season.
|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.
