Insight: Moss hasn't started hitting the long ball yet (1 HR) but is batting .295 with 11 RBI this season. He didn't start on Monday as the A's gave Daric Barton a start, but should be ready to go Tuesday.
 
4/14/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss is getting a breather Monday against the Angels.

Hot9/28/2013 10:26:00 AM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss' lone hit Friday night was a three-run homer in the first inning off Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.
Insight: Hernandez didn't give up any more runs after that. Moss has crushed 11 homers and driven in 30 runs while hitting .316/.416/.758 over his last 32 games and now has 29 homers, 84 RBI and an .854 OPS on the season.
 
Hot8/29/2013 8:43:00 PM
Description: A's first baseman Brandon Moss bopped another homer Thursday in a loss to the Tigers.
Insight: It was the first baseman's seventh blast in his last ten contests. Moss still strikes out a lot (seven whiffs in his last five outings) but when he makes contact, he can really give that ball a ride. His 25 homers this year are a career-high.
 
Hot8/28/2013 10:44:00 PM
Description: Oakland first baseman Brandon Moss lit up the scoreboard Wednesday night against Detroit.
Insight: He finished the game with four hits, two homers and six RBI. Moss is in the midst of a giant power surge with six homers in his last nine contests. His batting average has risen by 14 points over that span (.238 to .252).
 
8/21/2013 7:57:00 PM
Description: With a solo home run Wednesday, Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss reached 20 homers for the second straight season.
Insight: It took him just 265 at-bats to hit 21 homers last season, but it has taken a little longer this year to reach 20. In 352 at-bats, Moss is hitting .241 with 56 RBI and a .782 OPS, down 172 points from 2012.
 
6/29/2013 9:43:00 AM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss is 1-for-10 with five strikeouts against Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright.
Insight: Moss has been hitting the long ball, with seven homers and a .885 OPS over the past four weeks, but this is an unfavorable matchup.
 
6/23/2013 10:09:00 PM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss had two hits, including a solo home run, in four at-bats Sunday at Seattle.
Insight: Moss batted .148 in 88 at-bats from May 1 to June 11, but he's hitting .286 with five homers over his last 49 at-bats. He has good power, but he puts up a lot of o-fers.
 
6/21/2013 2:05:00 PM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss is a subpar 1-for-9 with four strikeouts against Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma.
Insight: Moss has raised his average from to .241 with a solid two-week run in which he's batted .324 with four homers. This matchup, however, isn't a good one.
 
Hot6/19/2013 10:17:00 AM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss hit his 13th homer of the season Tuesday at Texas.
Insight: Moss has raised his average from .222 to .240 by going 10-for-28 (.357) over his last six games. He had four home runs, seven RBI and six runs in that span, but also struck out 10 times.
 
6/13/2013 9:55:00 AM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss clubbed two home runs and had three RBI Wednesday against New York.
Insight: Moss has four home runs and seven RBI over his last eight games (four starts), but he's batting just .145 (12-for-83) with 32 K over his last 32 games (21 starts).
 
6/6/2013 5:45:00 PM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss is not in the starting lineup Thursday against the White Sox.
Insight: Moss has homered in two of the last three games, but he's hitting .132 (10-for-76) with zero multi-hit efforts over his last 27 games (20 starts). Moss is hitting .186 against lefties this season, so he'll take a seat with Jose Quintana on the mound.
 
6/5/2013 10:47:00 AM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss is just 1-for-9 with four strikeouts against Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo.
Insight: Moss was a fantasy factor in April (.295, 4 HR, 19 RBI), but since then he's struggled batting .148 with four homers and nine RBI in 31 games. We expect Nate Freiman to get the start on Wednesday afternoon.
 
4/17/2013 5:23:00 PM
Description: Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss is expected to be activated from the paternity leave list on Thursday, according to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Moss left the team Tuesday for the birth of his child. He has two omers and 13 RBIs in 46 at-bats this year, but his .283 average will be unsustainable with his 26.9 percent strikeout rate.
 
Hot4/11/2013 9:45:00 AM
Description: Nobody has been able to stop Brandon Moss lately. The A's first baseman left the yard for the second night in a row Wednesday in Anaheim, finishing the night with three hits and five RBI.
Insight: Moss is 8-for-11 at the plate over his last three games with two homers and 10 RBI. The 29-year-old blasted a career-high 21 HR a season ago and he should have a chance to eclipse that total in 2013.
 
4/4/2013 8:32:00 PM
Description: Oakland first baseman Brandon Moss left Thursday's game early after his wife went into labor.
Insight: If Moss has to miss any time, it will likely just be for one game. He is 1-for-11 in his first four games this season.
 
4/3/2013 7:08:00 PM
Description: Oakland first baseman Brandon Moss will take a seat Wednesday versus the Mariners.
Insight: He's gotten off to a tough start, going hitless in his first seven at bats. His backup Nate Freiman doesn't have any major league experience so it's unlikely that Moss will be relegated to platoon status even if he struggles this year.
 
9/29/2012 10:18:00 PM
Description: First baseman Brandon Moss propelled Oakland to victory Saturday by delivering a walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning.
Insight: The clutch homer was part of a 3-for-5 day for Moss. As it stands now, Oakland leads the Angels by two and a half games for the final Wild Card spot. Assuming that the A's hold on, they'll likely face either the Yankees or the Orioles in a tiebreaker game to determine who will advance to the American League Divison Series.
 
7/4/2012 8:33:00 PM
Description: Athletics outfielder/first baseman Brandon Moss hasn't stopped hitting home runs since he joined Oakland a month ago. In 24 games, Moss has 10 round-trippers.
Insight: Moss has three homers in his last four games after he went yard Wednesday against the Red Sox. He also had three hits to raise his average to .282.
 
6/14/2012 6:34:00 PM
Description: Athletics outfielder/first baseman Brandon Moss went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a homer and three RBIs Thursday against Colorado.
Insight: Moss hit 15 homers in 51 games for Triple-A Sacramento before getting a callup last week, and he hasn't stopped since he joined Oakland. In his first eight games with the big league club, Moss has slugged five home runs, including four in the last three games at Colorado. Still, don't get too excited about Moss, as he had just 15 MLB homers in 249 games prior to this season. Plus, four of his big flies this year came at Coors Field.
