Brandon Moss hit a three-run home run but it wasn't enough for the Indians in a loss to the Royals on Tuesday.
Moss swatted a Brandon Finnegan offering to right-center in the sixth inning, putting the Indians on top 5-3 at the time. The Indians' bullpen, however, proved leaky and the home run went for naught. Moss had a .554 OPS on April 21, but a solid week at the dish has raised it to .844. Along with that, he's hit four homers and knocked in 14 runs. Apr 28 - 9:51 PM

Brandon Moss blasted a pair of homers and drove home seven runs on Friday, powering the Indians in a 13-1 thrashing of the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.

Moss got the scoring started with a two-run double off Shane Greene in the first inning. He then clubbed a three-run shot off Alex Wilson in the fifth and for good measure added a two-run bomb off Al Albuquerque in the ninth. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .214/.327/.524 with three long balls and nine RBI on the season.
Apr 24 - 10:26 PM

Brandon Moss launched a solo homer and drew a walk Friday against the Twins.

It was his first home run of the season. Moss came into Friday's action with just two hits in his first 20 at-bats. He's capable of posting big power numbers when healthy, so perhaps this will get him going.
Apr 18 - 12:55 AM

Brandon Moss is not in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

He's on the bench against left-hander John Danks, with Jerry Sands handling right field and Ryan Raburn filling the designated hitter spot. Michael Brantley (back), as expected, is also out again, as Mike Aviles is in left field.
Apr 15 - 10:01 AM

Brandon Moss hit his fifth spring home run on Saturday, finishing 1-for-3 against the Brewers.

Moss tied the game at three apiece with a fifth-inning two-run home run against Jimmy Nelson. The Indians brought him in to provide some much-needed power and he's done exactly that this spring. He finishes Cactus League play with a .261 average (12-for-46) with five home runs and 10 RBI.
Apr 4 - 6:16 PM

Brandon Moss swatted his fourth home run of the Cactus League season, powering the Indians to an 8-6 victory over the Mariners on Tuesday.

His two-run blast put an exclamation point on a four-run uprising in the first inning against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez. He would later add an RBI single, finishing the day 2-for-3 with three RBI plus a walk. He's enjoying a solid spring in his first season as an Indian, batting .297 (11-for-34) with four homers and eight RBI.
Mar 31 - 10:17 PM

Brandon Moss (illness) is back in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Moss missed a couple days of action with the flu. He hasn't had any issues with his surgically-repaired hip and remains in line to be ready for Opening Day.
Mar 15 - 11:09 AM

Brandon Moss has been scratched from Friday's lineup due to a stomach bug.

The big news here is that Moss had been slated to play right field for the first time this spring after being limited to designated hitter duties the past few days. He'll be over the stomach issue soon and is on track to be ready to roll on Opening Day.
Mar 13 - 12:49 PM

Brandon Moss tripled and hit a solo home run in three at-bats as the Indians fell to the Athletics on Wednesday.

Moss homered in his debut on Monday and continued to hit the ball hard with two more extra-base hits Wednesday. His fourth inning solo homer brought the Indians to within one run. Having hit 76 home runs over the last three seasons, Moss should continue to bring the wood in 2015 with his new team.
Mar 11 - 7:26 PM

Brandon Moss homered in his Cactus League debut Monday versus the Mariners.

Moss finished 1-for-3 on the afternoon, taking Lucas Luetge out to right-center to tie the game up at 3-3 in the seventh inning. Moss is a bit late starting his spring due to offseason hip surgery, but barring any setbacks, he should be good to go by Opening Day. Having hit 25-plus home runs with 80-plus RBI in each of the last two seasons, he should add considerable pop to the Indians' lineup.
Mar 9 - 6:40 PM

Brandon Moss (hip) will make his Cactus League debut on Monday.

Moss has recovered quicker than expected from offseason hip surgery and is now ready for game action. He'll serve as the designated hitter on Monday but should be allowed to play the field before long. Moss obviously has plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day as long as he can avoid setbacks.
Mar 8 - 11:52 AM

Indians manager Terry Francona said that Brandon Moss (hip) has been "streaking" through his rehab.

Moss had hip surgery in October, so it sounds like he is making good progress. He ran the bases on Monday. Francona wouldn't say whether or not to expect Moss to be ready for Opening Day, but he should at least find himself in the spring lineup by mid-March.
Mar 3 - 11:58 AM

Brandon Moss (hip) took batting practice on the field Wednesday for the first time this spring.

Moss is currently rehabbing from October hip surgery. Indians manager Terry Francona said earlier this week that he's not ready to commit to him being ready for Opening Day, but the expectation is that he could be cleared for game action by mid-March. If so, he shouldn't need many at-bats to be tuned up.
Feb 25 - 3:33 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona on Monday wouldn't commit to Brandon Moss (hip) being ready for Opening Day.

Moss is currently working on building up his running program as he rehabs his way back from hip surgery. He's expected to be cleared for game action by mid-March, which should give him enough time to be ready for Opening Day as long as he doesn't have any setbacks. However, his manager obviously isn't ready to commit his name to the Opening Day lineup just yet.
