Indians | Brandon Moss past his injury

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 14:35:17 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Brandon Moss (hip) is to the point where manager Terry Francona isn't even thinking about Moss' injury after a return from right hip surgery last October. "He's done a fantastic job of getting ready. That's probably been a non-issue, which is kind of amazing when you think about it," Francona said.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is an under-the-radar source of power in fantasy drafts, and he's also eligible at multiple positions, making him even more valuable. Moss has hit at least 21 home runs in each of the past three seasons. Don't overlook him as you reach the middle rounds of drafts as a reliable source of power.

Indians | Brandon Moss will see time at first

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:39:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF/DH Brandon Moss will make an appearance at first base before the end of spring training, according to manager Terry Francona. He has played the outfield and served as the designated hitter thus far.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) remains an excellent power target in the late middle rounds of drafts. He has averaged over 25 home runs per year over the past three seasons, including 30 in 2013, and last season's second-half slide can be chalked up to a hip injury he has recovered from. There should be huge profit potential, if Moss falls far enough on draft day. He is a worthy FantasyScore play when facing a favorable right-handed pitching matchup, too.

Indians | Brandon Moss feeling great

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 15:49:52 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Brandon Moss (hip) is feeling very good this spring after having surgery in October on his right hip. The Indians have been very pleased with Moss' progress this spring after trading for him this offseason. Moss projects to bat fifth in the team's lineup, and he hopes to play in back-to-back spring games soon. "Swinging and running and everything else, it feels pretty normal," Moss said. "I feel like it's a normal spring. It's just getting used to the workload now."

Fantasy Tip: Moss is a fantasy asset that most drafters often overlook. He's hit at least 21 home runs in each of the last three seasons at O.co Coliseum (a heavy pitcher's park), and now he's moving to a much better hitting environment. It's not often you have a chance to select such a stable commodity in the later rounds of drafts.

Sun, 08 Mar 2015 15:29:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Brandon Moss (hip) will make his Indians debut on Monday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Moss finally feels good enough to play and it will be interesting to see what he can do. Moss projects as a mid to late-round selection in most leagues, depending on how much power he ends up having in that park.

Indians | Brandon Moss closing in on playing?

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 12:39:04 -0800

Cleveland Indians 1B Brandon Moss (hip) could be slightly ahead of his mid-March timeline for game action, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: With power down across baseball, Moss carries additional value in fantasy leagues. He has averaged over 25 home runs per year over the past three seasons, including 30 in 2013. He'll likely slide lower in the middle rounds than he should during drafts due to his disastrous second half last season. However, his hip surgery hopefully took care of the main culprit. There should be huge profit potential, if Moss falls far enough on draft day.

Indians | Brandon Moss takes batting practice

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 12:33:25 -0800

Cleveland Indians 1B Brandon Moss (hip) participated in batting practice Wednesday, Feb. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Moss likely will take some time during spring training to prepare for the regular season. His eligibility at first base and as an outfielder should help his value, and he should be an option in the middle rounds of mixed leagues because of his power potential.

Indians | Brandon Moss is pain-free

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 18:22:56 -0800

Cleveland Indians OF Brandon Moss (hip) said Tuesday, Feb. 24, that he is feeling very good after offseason hip surgery. He has looked surprisingly good in running drills. He is extremely optimistic about his chances of being ready for opening day.

Fantasy Tip: Moss has a very good bat, and he posted 25 homers with 81 RBIs in 147 games as a member of the Oakland Athletics despite a nagging hip injury. He could be a cheap source of power for FantasyScore owners in 2015.

Indians | Brandon Moss ready by mid-March

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 07:04:06 -0800

Cleveland Indians 1B/OF Brandon Moss (hip) is expected to be cleared for spring training games by mid-March. Moss is completing a hitting and running progression, and he has cleared every hurdle thus far. He has built up to sprints and begun overhand-toss hitting activities. He'll begin position-specific running drills in the next seven to 10 days.

Fantasy Tip: Moss was a diamond in the rough during his big first half last season. One must wonder if he can repeat it, but he'll be a solid midrange corner infielder in traditional leagues.

Indians | Brandon Moss prominent offensive role?

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 17:37:14 -0800

Cleveland Indians 1B Brandon Moss is expected to bat in the heart of the Indians' order, according to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian. Moss is projected to hit fifth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Moss, who is also outfield-eligible, was acquired to add pop to the Indians' order. Hitting fifth in the order should provide ample run-production opportunities to Moss, who already is a regular starter at corner infield or in the outfield due to his power. The depth at first base and in the outfield make Moss equally valuable at either position.
