Moss is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Despite reaching base twice in each of the first two games of the series, Moss will head to the bench for the series finale. Mike Moustakas will take over at DH, opening up a spot for Cheslor Cuthbert to start at the hot corner.
Moss is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Athletics, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports. This will mark the fifth time in six games Moss has been relegated to the bench. Melky Cabrera will serve as designated hitter, opening up a spot for Jorge Bonifacio to start in right field. Moss is batting just .206 on the season, so manager Ned Yost may be looking to deploy Bonifacio more often moving forward.
Moss is not in the lineup Friday against the White Sox. Moss will stay on the bench for the fourth straight game as Mike Moustakas takes a day off from the field while sliding into the DH spot during the series opener. The team is coming off a two-game set in St. Louis, so Moss only saw action as a pinch hitter in both contests, but figures to earn a majority of the at-bats at the designated hitter position moving forward.
Moss is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. With no DH spot available in the National League park, Moss will retreat to the bench for a third straight contest. The 33-year-old is slashing just .208/.287/.428 in 80 games this season, and with the recent addition of Melky Cabrera, he could start to lose playing time to Jorge Bonifacio if he doesn't turn things around.
Moss is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. After sitting out Tuesday's contest, Moss will be relegated to the bench again Wednesday, this time as a result of no DH spot being available in the National League park. The recent addition of Melky Cabrera has made the most negative effect on Jorge Bonifacio's playing time thus far, but Moss could end up being the victim if he fails to get going at the plate in his subsequent starts. Since his two-homer outburst on Aug. 3, Moss has recorded two hits in his last 11 at-bats.
