Moss is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.
Moss has provided home runs in back-to-back games to snap a massive power outage, and it looks like manager Bob Melvin doesn't want his run of success to end against lefty Derek Holland. Nate Freiman will enter the lineup in Moss' place.

Moss homered Sunday for the first time since July 24 in the A's win over the Mariners.
Because so many things have gone wrong for the A's in the last month, it was easy to blame the Yoenis Cespedes trade on their struggles. Getting Moss back to where he was, or at least a close facsimile of that, would help assuage their power concerns.

Moss is out of the lineup Friday against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
With another lefty (James Paxton) due up for the opposition, Moss will sit in favor of Nate Freiman at first base for a second straight day. Moss will likely continue to play exclusively against right-handers over the remainder of the season.

Moss is out of the lineup Thursday against the White Sox, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Manager Bob Melvin has all but rid his lineup of lefty-only bats to face White Sox ace Chris Sale, as per usual, with the lone exception being Sam Fuld in right field. Look for Moss, who's just 1-for-17 to begin September, to continue platooning at first base with Nate Freiman.

Moss is out of the lineup Friday against the Astros.
With lefty Brett Oberholtzer on the hill for Houston, Moss will once again sit in favor of Nate Freiman at first base. It looks like Moss will remain in a strict platoon role for the foreseeable future, meaning he'll continue to sit whenever the team faces a southpaw.

Moss is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners.
The M's are trotting out a lefty in James Paxton, so manager Bob Melvin will stack his lineup with righty bats, with the starting nod at first base given to Nate Freiman. Moss went 0-for-3 Monday to lower his second-half line to .178/.316/.248, and it looks like he'll continue to play exclusively against right-handed pitching for the foreseeable future.

Moss was 0-for-2 on Friday night to further extend his post All-Star Break slump.
Moss cannot seem to get out of his slump and is now hitting under .200 in August after hitting only .233 in July. Moss had at least four homers in every month this season prior to August, but he has zero so far this month with only four RBI in 69 at-bats. Moss will continue to play against righties as the A's need his bat in the lineup, but fantasy owners have to think about benching him until he shows any signs of life.
