Scouting Report

2020

After saving international pool money in a vain attempt to land Shohei Ohtani in 2017, the Rangers spent their excess cash on six-figure bonuses for six different players, including $800,000 for Moss. A Bahamian, he would have had to wait until the 2018-19 signing period had he been born 12 days later. He scuffled in his 2018 pro debut but starred as a 17-year-old in the Rookie-level Arizona League last summer, hitting .429 in the playoffs to lead his club to the championship.

Moss exhibits an innate feel for hitting from both sides of the plate, showing a quick swing, advanced understanding of the strike zone and a willingness to use the entire field. As he gets stronger, he should hit the ball with more authority and get to most of his average raw power. He possesses solid to plus speed and will bunt for hits and steal bases.

Though Moss is quick and athletic, scouts are divided on whether he can stay in the infield. He has improved at second base but lacks smooth infield actions, and his averagish arm is a bet stretched at shortstop and third base, where he also has seen action. Texas plans on keeping him on the dirt but may expose him to center field in 2020.
