Outfielder Brandon Moss, 28, hit .275/.368/.509 with 23 homers for the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate. The lefty hitter was signed to a minor league contract by the A's today.
The former top-rated Red Sox prospect stayed with the IronPigs during their playoff run before joining the Phils as a late September call-up, earning four innings in right field and six hitless plate appearances. His last extended Major League action came in 2009 when he played in 133 games with the Pirates. The Phils had an opportunity to add Moss earlier in the month but claimed outfielder John Bowker off waivers instead. Bowker went 0-for-13 and remains in the Phillies' plans for next season, as his inclusion on the 40-man roster would suggest. The signing was reported by Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus.
