Profile: Heading into September last year, it appeared that Brandon Moss was well on his way to a multi-year contract, or at least a qualifying offer. Through August, Moss had hit 25 homers in just 363 plate appearances and his overall batting line was 34% better than league average. Then September happened. Moss came to bat 101 times in the final month of the season and he got just nine hits and struck out 33 times. That month tanked his season stats, bringing his batting average down to .225 and kept him from getting to 30 homers. The left-handed Moss is probably best served in a platoon role and not playing every day like the Cardinals tried to do the second half of last season. While not great defensively, Moss can play both corners in the outfield as well as first base and has some positional versatility. Playing mostly against right-handers and getting a decent amount of rest for the 33-year-old with a history of hip problems (he also missed time last year with an ankle injury) would probably serve to help Moss' performance in the future. Give him 500 plate appearances and he can probably hit 25 homers. He's going to strike out a bunch and have a low average, but it might be worth the trade-off if you can spot his starts. (Craig Edwards)

The Quick Opinion: Moss' September crash hurt his seasonal numbers, but in a platoon role, 25 homers is still a decent possibility for the veteran.
