Brandon Moss turning into RBI machine


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2014) Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss has transformed himself from an all-or-nothing power hitter into an RBI machine, reports the San Jose Mercury News. His 39 RBI rank second in the American League behind Jose Abreu's 42.

Hitting coach Chili Davis said Moss doesn't swing as hard as he used to, and the change has paid off.

"He's on a really torrid streak," Davis said. "(Monday) night he missed the ball and still hit it out of the park. That's the kind of power he has. The 80 percent thing works for him. He can see the ball, he can track it and he trusts his swing."

Moss said people have a misconception about his swing.

"I think people think I swing from my ass on every pitch," he said. "I'm not. I'm at 80 percent, because when I swing too hard, I can't pull the ball. My swing is too long and I stand too close to the plate for that.

"People who watch me play every day know that I'm not trying to hit a home run every single at-bat. There are times when I might try to do it. But for the most part, I'm just trying to get a good pitch to hit and get the ball in the air. If I do that, the extra-base hits take care of themselves."

Moss had a career-high 87 RBI last year and is on pace for 144 this season.
