Moss went 3-for-3 with a homer and two RBI during Sunday's 8-7 win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

The perfect day at the plate boosted Moss' spring average up to .283, while the home run was his second of Cactus League play. The batting average is more likely to become a sinkhole once the regular season rolls around thanks to Moss' high strikeout rates, but he should still be viewed as one of the more stable sources of power in the Royals lineup. Moss has smacked 25 or more homers in three of his last four seasons.

Moss will DH in Wednesday's game against Team Venezuela, his first action since being scratched with a stiff lower back.

EDGE Analysis

A few days of rest seems to have done the trick here, as Moss will look to get back on track this spring after the minor setback. The slugger has two hits in 12 at-bats this spring.

Moss was held out of Saturday's game due to stiffness in his lower back, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The issue doesn't seem to be too serious, and the Royals are likely just being careful with their offseason signing. He should be considered day-to-day until the team says otherwise. Right now, the 33-year-old is in line to see most of his time as the team's primary designated hitter.

Moss agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with the Royals on Sunday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moss spent the 2016 season with the Cardinals, slashing .225/.300/.484 and belting 28 home runs in 464 plate appearances. The 33-year-old still has plenty of pop in his bat, but he's also prone to striking out. He posted a career-worst 30.4 percent strikeout rate late season. Moss figures to see plenty of time as the team's designated hitter, but it also capable of filling in at first base and the corner outfield spots when needed.

Moss is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Moss is an ugly 6-for-80 (.075) this month and has just one hit since Sept. 18, so manager Mike Matheny decided to hold him out of the lineup for Thursday's key contest. Jose Martinez will get the start in left field in Moss' place.

Moss is out of the lineup Friday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals will opt to give Matt Adams the nod at first base and Kolten Wong the start in left field Friday, leaving Moss as the odd man out. Despite posting his highest K-rate of his career in a full season (30.9 percent), Moss is three homers shy of tying his career-high mark of 30, hit in 2013 with the A's.

Moss homered, scored twice and tallied two RBI in a 2-for-3 game Tuesday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Moss was a brutal 4-for-52 with 17 strikeouts over 19 games since his last home runs, both of which came August 25 against the Mets. With 26 home runs in 112 games, Moss has his highest total since he hit 30 in 145 games for the Athletics in 2013. With Matt Holliday still on the disabled list, look for Moss to be in the Cardinals lineup most days down the stretch, giving him a real shot at 30 home runs for just the second time in his career.

Moss will get the day of Monday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals will go with a starting outfield of Stephen Piscotty, Randal Grichuk and Jeremy Hazelbaker as Moss sits for the first time since last Tuesday's matchup with Milwaukee. Moss is coming off of a month in which he hit .272, but he's 0-for-10 at the plate in three September games.

Moss is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Moss is sizzling this month with an .891 OPS, but he will get a day off after going 1-for-11 with five strikeouts over his last three games. With Moss opening on the bench, the Cardinals will give Tommy Pham the start in left field, and use Matt Carpenter at first base.
