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.

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.

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.

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.
