  1. Brandon Moss batting average versus lefties is very close if not better that his batting average against righties, especially in 2012. If given enough consistent at bats he can hit .290 – .300 with 25 – 30 plus HR. The problem for him is that through out his ML service, except in Oakland, he would play a game or two and sit out three or four. He was never given a chance to get his timing down thanks to John Russell.

    • Jeff,

      While you are correct in pointing out Moss has had relative success against lefties in his career, and he hit well against them last year the sample size is extremely small, 58 at-bats against lefties last year compared to 207 against righties. This is due to the strong belief that he struggles against lefties. His high BABIP last year, 30 points above his career average also suggest he ran into some luck last year. From 2010-12 Moss only saw 60 at-bats against lefties, and while he had a .283 batting average against them, 60 at-bats is too small of a sample size. Over the same time period he has seen 237 at-bats ahainst righties. In the minor leagues last season Moss hit just .247 against lefties in 74 at-bats, compared to .311 against righties in 119 at-bats. Those splits while still a small sample size are a stronger representation of the type of hitter Moss can be.
