The Oakland Athletics 1B/OF Brandon Moss played ten seasons in the minor leagues before breaking out with 30 home runs last season.
Not bad for a guy getting paid less than $6 million total over the last two seasons.
Brandon Moss has hit 37 home-runs in his most recent full-season (527 AB’s). The ex-Red Sox prospect is playing half his games in the pitcher friendly Oakland Coliseum means that his road HR pace is even higher (42 HRs/550 ABs).
Considering in 2011, Moss led the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in homers I’d say the A’s first baseman has taken a monster leap forward.
