Brandon Moss hits first home run
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss hit his first home run of the year Sunday against the Mariners.

Moss didn't wait long to make an impact against Erasmo Ramirez. After striking out in the first inning, Moss stepped up to the plate with two men on in the third. On the fourth pitch of the at-bat, Moss clobbered a fastball out to center field for the three-run shot. 

He finished the game 1 for 4, with one run scored and three RBI.

Brandon Moss to take a seat Thursday against Mariners
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Bob Melvin has given left-handed hitting Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss the day off Thursday against Seattle rookie southpaw Roenis Elias. Alberto Callaspo will play that position instead.

Moss is off to a strong start with four hits in 11 at-bats. But his batting average and power numbers have traditionally suffered against left-handed pitching. The differences were particularly pronounced last season, when he batted just .200 against lefties.

Brandon Moss working on bunting
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss is working on his bunting, according to the Bay Area News Group.

Moss wanted to try bunting last season, but admitted that he didn't know how. The team told him to work on it during spring training. Moss is trying to be better prepared for the shift. If he can lay the occasional bunt down the third base line, teams may be more hesitant to shift him. Though he's working on bunting during camp, Moss admitted things are different during games. "It's different against live pitching,'' Moss said. "Batting practice, you know what's coming. But when pitchers are trying to get you out, that's when you have to get it done."

Moss hit .256/.337/.522 in 446 at-bats.

Brandon Moss could be benched against lefties in 2014
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Brandon Moss hit a career-high 30 home runs in 2013 but is not destined for every-day action at first base for the Athletics, according to CSNCalifornia.com. Bob Melvin will seek to find a right-handed bat to play against southpaws.

"It's based on the way the roster is made up, but I think, to an extent, he'll get some days off against left-handed pitching," Melvin said about Moss. "There are times that he's swung the bat well against left-handed pitching and we'll take that into consideration. But we're always trying to run the best lineup out there on a particular day."

One possibility is switch-hitter Alberto Callaspo, who could make a move to that position.

Moss batted .268 against right-handed pitching last season but just .200 with four home runs against lefties.
