Player Notes
Brandon Moss sent the Cardinals to a walk-off victory on Sunday with an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Rockies.

Advice: Moss pinch-hit for Mark Reynolds with runners in first and third and one out in the bottom of the ninth inning against Scott Oberg. Against a shifted infield, he slapped a single where the shortstop would normally have been playing, allowing the winning run to score easily. Moss is now 2-for-11 with two singles and an RBI as a Cardinal.

Cardinals acquired 1B/OF Brandon Moss from the Indians for LHP Rob Kaminsky.

Advice: Moss has struggled to produce consistent numbers offensively since developing a hip injury last summer and there hasn't been much indication that he's going to turn it around. The 31-year-old does have some pop and he does fit the Cardinals' need for a corner outfield and first base type with Matt Holliday (quad) back on the shelf, but Kaminsky is no small price. Moss, who's under contractual control through 2016, will likely split time between first base and left field in St. Louis.

Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have acquired Brandon Moss from the Indians for pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky.

Advice: Moss fits the Cardinals' need for both a first baseman and corner outfielder, but it comes at a steep price. Kaminsky, the 28th overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, boasts a 2.15 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 186/68 K/BB ratio in 217 1/3 career minor league innings. The 20-year-old left-hander is currently in High-A ball. Moss, meanwhile, has struggled offensively since undergoing hip surgery in 2014.

According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the Cardinals are talking to the Indians about Brandon Moss.

Advice: Moss can play both first base and corner outfield, which fits the Cardinals' immediate need now that Matt Holliday is headed back to the disabled list with a re-strain of his right quad. Moss has struggled in his first season with the Indians, but the 31-year-old registered an .844 OPS (135 OPS+) for the A's between 2012-2014. Cotillo says there's been talk of a one-for-one swap of Moss and Cardinals pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky.
